The value of tools that are simple to operate and manage during an outbreak or pandemic can’t be overstated. When physical distancing helps protect physical health it can adversely affect relationships and mental wellness of residents. Finding the “way forward” is simpler today than it ever was in the past.
To support community success during times of outbreak, we have designed a custom-tailored toolset that will create real opportunities for communication, engagement and provide a certain level of normalcy for residents, families and staff.
The InTouchLink Outbreak & Pandemic solution creates proactive communication opportunities that encourage strong and satisfying connections between your residents, their families, and the community.
Families and residents sign themselves up for an account and can connect directly with your community – from any device and from anywhere in the world.
