)-- Linked Senior, Inc. and the Virginia Health Care Association are proud to announce a new partnership. Charles de Vilmorin, CEO of Linked Senior and Stephen C. Morrisette, President of VHCA announced their agreement to work together to provide technology to enhance the quality of life for residents of Virginia nursing and assisted living facilities. The agreement will allow VHCA member facilities to purchase Linked Senior programing, specifically designed for seniors, at a reduced rate. Mr. Morrisette said he is delighted that Linked Senior will provide the VHCA community and its members with the best programming, entertainment, and wellness service for seniors that is available. “We are anticipating that this agreement with Linked Senior will provide significant advances in programs for seniors in VHCA member facilities,” said Morrisette.
According to Charles De Vilmorin, Linked Senior CEO, "Being endorsed by VHCA is an honor and means a lot to us. Linked Senior was first designed in partnership with Vinson Hall, a retirement community in McLean, Virginia, and VHCA is one of the first long term care associations to recognize the potential Linked Senior can provide to its members. We are very happy to offer our service to its members and look forward to this collaboration."
VHCA is a long term care trade association based in Richmond, Virginia and represents more than 270 nursing and assisted living facilities, with 32,000 residents, and over 30,000 staff members in Virginia. The association is very diverse offering membership to proprietary, non-profit, and government-operated long term care facilities all having the same goal of achieving the highest level of care to residents and enhancing their quality of life. Members of this organization are given access to education, counseling, and advice in areas including regulations, advocacy, communications, and public relations.
Linked Senior uses simple technology to support wellness and programming in a social, interactive, meaningful and engaging way. The system includes a touch screen and content tailored for seniors. Some of the features included are games, puzzles, custom slideshows for reminiscence, brain fitness, and educational content.
Linked Senior’s vision is to enhance the life of the elderly in senior communities through better access to information, entertainment, education, and therapy. The service opens communities to the world while helping management improve their programming and quality of life for the residents, just as the VHCA seeks to do.
