Eversound, a provider of hearing technology and resident engagement solutions for senior living communities, has announced a partnership with Silverado, which operates memory care communities across eight states.
Eversound designs and develops audio technologies to help seniors hear movies, presentations and other group activities more clearly. The company’s patented wireless headphone system claims to be tuned to the needs of seniors, providing an “enhanced listening experience compared to conventional hearing aids,” according to a news release.
As part of Silverado and Eversound’s new partnership, Silverado will be implementing Eversound’s technologies to all 36 of its communities.
“Making meaningful personal connections is a cornerstone of Silverado’s care philosophy, and we believe that Eversound makes it easier to overcome the barriers hearing impairment can create for our range of engagement programs,” Kathy Greene, senior vice president of Silverado’s Program and Services Integration, said in the release.
“We’re very excited to be adopting Eversound’s technology as a way to add a new dimension to the engagements our residents enjoy, assisting us in our mission to enrich their lives as they face the challenges of dementia,” Greene added.
The release included a list of Dallas-Fort Worth area Silverado communities that are now Eversound connected:
— Silverado Fort Worth
— Silverado Plano
— Silverado Southlake
— Silverado Turtle Creek (Dallas)
— Silverado Valley Ranch (Irving)
“While hearing aids can be helpful, they’re often overly expensive, easy to lose and challenging to operate for users who lack manual dexterity,” Jake Reisch, Eversound CEO and co-founder said in the release. “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.”
Matt Reiners, Eversound co-founder and vice president of Customer Impact said that while hearing loss is a natural part of growing older, when left unaddressed, “it has been linked to mental decline, social isolation and depression.”
“With the 65+ population nearly doubling by 2050, we are excited to support one of the top leading senior living communities to address such a critical need,” Reiners said in the release.
