Assisted living facilities are the home to around one million senior adults across the country. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by 2030, all baby boomers will be older than age 65. This will expand the size of the older population so that 1 in every 5 residents will be retirement age. These statistics reflect the ever increasing necessity for assisted living care.
As an assisted living facility executive director or administrator, it is your job to ensure all residents, especially as your population rises, are happy, safe and well taken care of. But what about your dedicated employees? As one can imagine, healthcare workers face innumerable challenges in their work day as they care for many seniors with different types of needs in varying degrees of intensity.
With demand increasing for top quality staff to care for the growing number of seniors, why not make your facility stand out to potential employees with CYRN. By providing your staff with a layer of safety, you’ll demonstrate that your facility cares and is dynamic by investing in resources for both its residents and its staff’s safety alike.
The Wearable Panic Button
The CYRN (pronounced sīrən) SOS button is a professional emergency help button which is ideal for healthcare workers, hospitality teams, campus environments, field employees, lone workers, dangerous and hazardous professions, and all workers on the go. At the size of a quarter, CYRN can be carried discreetly in a pocket or a bag, worn on the wrist, on a keycard, or around the neck as a pendant.
You might wonder whether you can simply rely on the technology you already have, such as solely a smartphone to call for help if an emergency arises. Probably not, experts say. That’s because it’s unlikely that you have your smartphone in your hand all the time, says Mindy Renfro, Ph.D., D.P.T., an associate professor in the school of physical therapy at Touro University Nevada in Henderson. It’s easy to get up from a chair and leave it there. “If you don’t have an emergency response system on your body that is going to stay on your body, you’re at risk,” she says.
The SOS Alert App
CYRN is a wearable device that uses Bluetooth® technology in association with a mobile app on Android or iOS, to emergency alert text messages with GPS location from a smartphone. Bluetooth 4.0 allows for a range of up to 75 feet indoors and up to 300 feet outdoors between the CYRN and smartphone, providing your employees with both added safety and mobility.
CYRN ensures that your team members will get help fast if in trouble, even when their phone screens are locked or out of reach. At the press of a button, your employee will trigger their cell phone to alert emergency staff, safety teams, and send a text message for help, which includes their GPS location.
