JEA Senior Living and Eversound Partner to Solve Hearing Loss at Senior Living Communities
BOSTON, June 19, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Eversound, the provider of hearing technology and resident engagement solutions for senior living communities, has announced its partnership with JEA Senior Living, which operates over 50 Specialty Care Centers throughout the United States. Eversound designs and develops proprietary audio technologies which help everyone hear clearly during movies, presentations and other group activities. Their patented wireless headphone system is specifically tuned to the needs of seniors and provides an enhanced listening experience compared to conventional hearing aids.
As part of the partnership, JEA Senior Living will be making Eversound available to residents at all of their communities including independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, as well as their primary focus, Alzheimer’s care.
“Eversound is a perfect fit for all of our residents, across all levels of care, and implementation couldn’t have been easier. One of JEA’s founding philosophies and a vital element for memory care communities is to add meaning and value to our residents' day while helping them feel comfortable in their environment,” said Rachel Kohl, VP of program development of JEA Senior Living. “We’ve seen the Eversound headphones measurably improve engagement and the ability to understand and drive deeper socialization during group events. Seeing our residents and their family members’ faces light up at the ability to communicate again is indescribable.”
So why Eversound? As many program directors find, they spend hours planning and preparing quality programming only to be discouraged by the number of residents who fail to show up or seem uninterested during events and daily activities. The issue may be as simple as this: residents are struggling to hear, thus leaving them unable to engage and get involved. Eversound’s group listening system, which is designed specifically for older adults and improves quality of life through enhanced audio, provides a solution to this issue faced by every senior living community, and now it’s rolling out nationwide thanks in large part to this partnership with JEA Senior Living.
“While hearing aids can be helpful, they’re often overly expensive, easy to lose and challenging to operate for users who lack manual dexterity. We believe that beautiful, easy-to-use audio products can be the answer and our team is excited to deliver high-fidelity sound to large audience members for less than the cost of one premium hearing aid,” said Jake Reisch, CEO and co-founder of Eversound.
“We are very excited to participate in this partnership with JEA Senior Living. The dramatic improvement that comes from giving the gift of hearing is incredible for everyone - staff, residents and loved ones alike,” continued Alex Wilson, director of resident impact for Eversound. “The results are automatic, which immediately increases the morale of both the staff and residents significantly. Hearing loss is a natural part of the aging process but when left unaddressed, it can lead to mental decline, social isolation and depression. With the 65-plus population nearly doubling by 2050, we are excited to support one of the top leading senior living communities in addressing such a critical need.”
