Hearing-impaired seniors may get improved connectivity sooner after tech acquisition
Residents of senior living communities soon may get access to new technology designed to improve connectivity and reduce social isolation among older hearing-impaired adults, thanks to a healthcare acquisition announced Monday.
Uniguest, a global leader in digital engagement for the senior living and other industries, announced the acquisition of Eversound, a technology and content provider specializing in creating engagement for senior living communities to improve quality of life for residents.
Three Cornell University classmates founded Eversound in 2015 in the school’s e-Lab business accelerator with the goal of improving social connectivity and quality of life for older adults with hearing loss and cognitive decline. The technology currently is used by tens of thousands of older adults in more than 1,000 communities, according to the company, which said the acquisition will help expand its reach even farther.
