Wellzesta has partnered with VoCo, a leading voice technology provider who offers senior living residents and members access to secure, private messages on Alexa devices. Through this partnership, Wellzesta offers its clients an extended way to access their community-specific data: by asking Alexa.
Because Alexa’s skills are now integrated with Wellzesta software platforms, users can ask Alexa about upcoming calendar events, activity schedules, daily menus, and more.
Community staff will be able to utilize Alexa to streamline their operations and offer an additional voice-activated option to daily engagement at any level of care. Residents and members can easily stay informed by asking Alexa and by checking Wellzesta Life, a communication and wellness platform available on mobile devices.
“VoCo is delighted to partner with Wellzesta,” said President of VoCo Leon Coe. “Wellzesta's strong presence and great reputation among Life Plan Communities will introduce the power of voice technology to a new population of seniors. Together, clients can seamlessly access Wellzesta’s wellness-driven applications through a senior-friendly voice platform. VoCo reduces the barrier of technology adoption by older adults by customizing their experience with onsite, hands-on training on the Alexa device.”
As older adults interact with voice-activated technology, an emotional response is generated that can help deter isolation and loneliness. For older adults, social connection is vitally important, as it can help defend against cognitive decline and other health issues.
“Partnering with VoCo allows us to expand Wellzesta’s offerings and explore the advantages that secure, voice technology offers,” said Wellzesta CEO Dr. John Robinson. “We bring our clients the very best in communication and wellness engagement, allowing adults to thrive at any age.”
