Telehealth Gives Senior Centers a Gateway to Patient Engagement
January 26, 2018 - Senior centers across the country are deploying a wide range of telehealth and mHealth technologies to keep their residents active and engaged.
One such example is Front Porch, a Glendale, Calif.-based non-profit comprising 10 full-service retirement communities in southern California and two adult living facilities, one in Louisiana and one in Florida. Through the Front Porch Center for WellBeing, the agency has been using wearables, telehealth platforms, computer-aided “exergames” and even a robotic seal called PARO to promote physical and mental well-being.
