It’s a common stereotype that senior citizens don’t appreciate technology, but that’s just all that line of thinking is: a stereotype. Everyone, regardless of age, can appreciate tech that enhances their lives. There’s no age limit to learning something new!
In your senior living facility, you’re determined to help your clients live out their golden years as comfortably and conveniently as possible, so why shouldn’t new technology and new features be a part of facilitating this mission? Indeed, a senior living TV system chalk-full of individualized features can provide stimulating new entertainment that your clientele deserve, as well as bring them comforting and nostalgic television they so appreciated during their youth. Bringing new tech into your facility can drastically increase the quality of life of your residents—and, thus, create a more enjoyable working environment for your staff.
While we said everyone can learn about the new features and new technologies that come with an updated retirement home TV system, nobody is born with this knowledge. That’s why Aufderworld, as experts in senior TV cable plans, discusses below a few features below that you might find useful when it comes to senior living TV.
Consider the Unique Needs of Your Senior Clientele
Of course, senior citizens appreciate convenience as much as the next person, but this demographic does have unique needs when it comes to providing high-quality AV services. A well-rounded team of audio-visual consultants like those at Aufderworld can provide everything your senior living TV might need, such as:
● Hearing loop systems. Through innovative technology, hearing loop systems can magnetically deliver sound directly to any person wearing a modernized hearing aid. In a senior living facility, where many clients suffer from hearing impairment, this can help increase accessibility and let everyone, regardless of their hearing abilities, enjoy the television together.
● Control systems. Centralizing the control of your audio and visual technology can make it easier for your clientele with mobility problems to fully participate in your facility’s culture and enjoy the amenities. Installing control panels in individual media rooms can be a smart choice for senior homes everywhere.
● Sound masking. While this isn’t a feature on your televisions, per se, it definitely is one that enables your residents to better focus on their favorite television shows. By reducing excessive noise, sound masking enables your residents to enjoy their recreation in the peace and quiet they deserve.
