Edgemere, a Senior Quality Lifestyles Corp.-sponsored retirement community, has launched a free app to introduce technology to residents, connect them with their neighbors, and stay up to date with daily activities and events.
The new app is designed to facilitate resident’s lives, making community information more accessible and centralizing communication. In addition to receiving daily updates, residents can also see dining menus, newsletters, the resident and staff directory, volunteer opportunities, email and more.
Edgemere’s app is an extension of the community’s philosophy which promotes “successful aging” by providing residents with opportunities to enhance their spiritual, mental, social, and physical wellness. The app was built through Touch Town, a security-first platform allowing residents to email directly within the app.
Luis Argote, executive director at Edgemere, says the app allows Edgemere to become a leader in providing technology within the retirement community space.
“Residents have the power to keep track of their schedule, stay up to date on the latest activities and events offered by Edgemere, and even call a neighbor or staff member—all at their fingertips,” Argote said. “The residents truly enjoy using it, and we plan to continue developing the app as technology advances.”
