White Horse Village Next-Gen Technology Investment Keeps Residents Connected
White Horse Village leverages the latest technology advancements to keep residents connected during the coronavirus pandemic. Connectedness and relationships are foundations of the active senior living community’s mission and are critically important to the physical and emotional health of residents during the current crisis.
In 2019, the community partnered with K4Connect to bring connected-life capabilities to residents and team members. White Horse Village’s strategic plan includes implementing technology solutions to meet the evolving needs of the 550 residents and 375 team members across its expansive 96-acre campus. Current and future deployments include:
- K4Community, a community system that integrates every aspect of community life into a single solution, serving the needs of residents, families, team members and managers. The solution combines the latest in home automation, communication, engagement and voice technologies, as well as team and operator tools and resources. Current deployments of K4Community include Digital Signage and Insertion Channel capabilities.
- K4Community Plus app, a new resident experience platform to virtually connect and engage individuals more easily with other residents, family and team members. App features include video communication, social feed, voice-activated functionality and integration, smart home, and community information and programming.
“Our timely investment in K4Connect’s solutions has eased the strains of the current restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic and enables our residents and team members to stay connected during a stressful and unprecedented time,” comments Len Weiser, President and CEO of White Horse Village. “The app will give residents the ability to stay apprised of campus happenings and allows us the ability to remotely communicate with residents on general information and important updates 24/7.”
The Resident Technology Advisory Committee, a group of technology-minded residents, participated in beta testing the K4Community Plus app. The committee encourages tech innovation on campus and offers various training classes for residents.
“We’re excited to support White Horse Village with dynamic solutions that can truly transform the lives of all residents and team members at this impressive Community,” says F. Scott Moody, Co-founder, CEO, and Chief Member Advocate of K4Connect. “Len and the whole team were excellent partners in beta testing K4Community Plus, it’s exciting to now release it for the entire community to enjoy.”
