Linked Senior Launches Celo Context to Further Resident Engagement and Enable Social Prescription in Senior Living

Posted on November 7, 2021

(Washington, D.C. – November 8, 2021) Linked Senior, the evidence-based resident engagement platform for senior living, announced today the release of its new Celo Context offering. With this new product, a provider will now be able to manage all resident engagement, follow real time analytics and start enabling the senior living market with the much needed social prescription model. This allows for increased compliance, better management and higher quality of care for Elders.

Prior to the global pandemic, a 2016 CDC report indicated that assisted living residents receive just 20 minutes of engagement per day (outside of assistance with ADLs and IADLs) and long-term care residents receive only 11 minutes of engagement. While the COVID-19 pandemic and current staffing crisis have negatively impacted senior living communities, providers have also increased their commitment to drastically improving the resident experience.

Linked Senior’s Chief Operating Officer Jeff Moore shared his excitement about the launch of Celo Context saying, “Our goal has always been to provide our customers with tools to help them better engage their residents and empower their staff. This has become even more critical as communities deal with COVID-19 and staffing shortages. Celo Context allows customers to define goals and track progress against those goals so they can visually track progress and communicate successes and challenges in a manner accessible to all stakeholders. This kind of communication allows staff and family to provide better care to residents.”

Melissa Dillon, Director of Garden House at Merrill Gardens in Seattle, Washington echoed these sentiments sharing, “The upgrade of the new Linked Senior platform is fantastic. The ability to analyze the engagement offered to our residents will foster a better understanding of how to continue to improve our memory care programs.  Best of all it saves me time in reporting successes, from teams to the home office leadership.”

Elsa Haile, Life Enrichment Director at Barclay Friends (part of The Kendal Corporation) in West Chester, Pennsylvania shared that, “Celo Context was super easy to use, more colorful to see the visuals and I found the device tab very interesting.” 

The Celo Context product will be made available immediately to current Linked Senior customers in conjunction with the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) annual conference and additional functionalities will be offered throughout 2022.
