According to the Alzheimer’s Association, as of 2016 an estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. Many of these people will eventually end up in senior living communities where resident wandering is a significant concern.
Ascom teleCARE IP emergency call systems offered by Convergint Technologies are the most flexible and comprehensive onsite communications solutions available for senior living facilities that comply with UL 2560 requirements.
