Senior Living Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi Solutions for Assisted Living and Retirement Communities
There was a time when seniors were viewed as technology challenged. While some of that continues today, it is changing rapidly. Baby boomers are aging in larger numbers than any other generation with a much greater understanding of technology. They are down-sizing and moving into senior communities or an independent living senior apartment where they expect their digital lives to continue uninterrupted. For some, instant communication and news is their focus. For other seniors, it might be gaming and a fair number will continue to work. Wi-Fi is their life-line. They expect seamless, uninterrupted wireless connectivity no matter where they plan to live out their later years. Wanaport understands how important this is and designs, implements and manages Wi-Fi for senior living and senior living internet solutions that keep community members happy and reliably connected. If you are building new senior housing or assisted living properties, or renewing the infrastructure of existing ones, you should not underestimate this critical requirement of senior living Wi-Fi connectivity for your residents.
Internet Assisted Living Wi-Fi Usage in Senior Living Facilities
Wanaport recognizes that Assisted Living is a rapidly growing industry where community facilities offer seniors assistance in their daily lives, but also let them maintain their independence. Adults in this age range stay current on the latest technologies and have a strong interest in staying connected and using the additional online amenities a robust assisted living Wi-Fi solution can offer.
Everybody depends on internet connectivity these days and seniors are no exception. An industry leading, nonpartisan, nonprofit research firm called the Pew Research Center, published a detailed study on internet use among seniors. The Pew Internet and American Life Project found that 53 % of adults age 65 or older use the internet for email and for social media such as Facebook. Seniors are finding that the internet helps them stay in touch with family and friends close by or reconnecting with old friends far away.
Wanaport can design, implement, and manage a “guest or resident” network for assisted living facilities all across the US. We’ll provide your community a fast, reliable and easy-to-use wireless network for your residents, their guests and visitors. Wanaport can also implement administrative networks for paging, data and voice use as well as helping with your assisted living facility’s IT infrastructure needs.
Ultra-Fast Fiber Internet
Wanaport provides turnkey, gigabit fiber installation and support for new or existing facilities across the country. Our network engineers then optimize Wi-Fi coverage throughout each senior living property. Tablets and mobile devices are becoming more common so staff can move around the facility to care for patients so excellent facility-wide coverage is critical.
More Competitive Profitable Business
Wanaport has a number of financing options where we fund all the upfront equipment and networking infrastructure to get your next generation Wi-Fi solution up and running. We can help you earn significantly more revenue per door than standard telco’s while delivering greater ongoing cost savings and more competitive Wi-Fi services to your seniors. .
Personal Area Networks (PAN)
Every senior and staff member receive their own Personal Area Network (PAN) that is safer and simpler to use than most home networks. New users authenticate and are auto-connected from then on with secure, encrypted access to their own PAN in-room and throughout the property. This makes it easy for seniors to check email, look at photos on social media, and communicate with friends and family over video conferencing like Zoom.
Give your residents a five star TV experience with your choice of premium satellite TV packages delivered and managed at lower cost from Wanaport. Our integrated TV casting solutions can also help differentiate your property’s TV entertainment solution from the rest.
Promoting your Senior
and Assisted Living Facility
Having a robust administrative network will also allow your staff to communicate with prospective customers and their families via email, video conferencing and virtual tours. This can educate prospective residents on your facility even if they are not local for an onsite visit.
Save money and deliver a better guest experience with intelligent automation solutions from Wanaport. By integrating each user’s PAN to your senior housing IoT devices (Internet of Things), you can automatically adjust costly utilities such as AX, heating and lighting when patients and staff are not in certain areas of the facility.
Wanaport provides the industry’s highest level of network and cloud security with the latest generation of firewalls, VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), obfuscation and tokenization. Our cyber security solutions protect your network, applications, data, mobile devices, remote access and more.
Wanaport’s cloud based management platform makes it easy to manage all your online user and property solutions. Our straightforward interface makes it easy for non-technical staff to create and manage new senior living services and our advanced analytics and reporting ensures a consistent, seamless experience for all users and across multiple facilities.
