Alexa for and Senior Living

 TOUCHLESS TECHNOLOGY 

Smart, Relevant Innovations for Senior Living 

June 2020. New to U.S. senior living communities, the Daily Health Check-in Skills enables community staff to leverage ALEXA to ask residents how they are feeling when they wake up in the morning. If a resident reports any signs of sickness, such as a sore throat, fever, light headiness, etc., the caregiver staff is notified with a daily report. 

Consider the benefits: 

• Reduced in-person contact 

• Mitigate exposure 

• Accelerate response time 

• Reduce potential liability & lawsuits 

Unwired Engineering (UE), working in cooperation with Amazon Hospitality (AWS)and FSM developed this new Skill, conducted clinical testing and is now offering this new ALEXA Skill for senior living communities around the U.S. 

We invite you to learn more about the new Daily Health Check-in Skills, along with a new library of AWS Skills designed exclusively for today’s senior living properties. Among the most popular are Skills for:
