UrLoop helps older adults connect and thrive by bringing the world of app communication and social media to the residents of Wesley Partners Senior Living in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
“UrLoop is not just an app or software platform. We evolved from the core belief and conviction that we can fundamentally improve the way older adults interact, live and play. We want them to know that they are not forgotten. On the contrary, we revere and respect them. They are parents, leaders, inspirations, fantastic storytellers, and compassionate individuals. We want them to understand that they don’t have to be lonely but rather have the opportunity to build new friendships and enjoy life fully. We want them to be happier and more engaged than ever. Everything UrLoop is doing and will do is to achieve this goal.” Said Jane Lindner, CEO of UrLoop.
UrLoop brings together social media, chat, service requests, scheduling and multi-person video conferencing to employees, residents and family members and was designed together with seniors for seniors. Residents can interact with one another regarding the day’s events or within special groups where they may share the same interests. The goal of UrLoop is to create happy residents who are involved and interact with one another as well as the team and family in a safe and trusted engagement platform. UrLoop also provides a communication channel for team members to connect during their busy days in an efficient and familiar way.
UrLoop’s unique and personal way of community training allowed the Wesley Group’s staff, residents and family members to readily engage in text, video conference, chat and socialize all in one HIPAA compliant environment. While it is often perceived that older adults are resistant to new technology, Wesley’s residents and family members were excited to learn, connect and socialize through the UrLoop app.
“That’s just sexy” stated Kent Renshaw, a resident family member when he was able to invite his sisters to join UrLoop where they could all video chat with their father from three different locations.
“UrLoop is the perfect partner for us. They listen. They collaborate. They implement. Then our staff and residents get this uniquely innovative software to make them happier.” said Jason Evans, Co-Owner
