Senior Living centers house more than one million seniors in the U.S. According to the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), there are more than 28,000 senior and assisted living centers in the U.S.
Senior and assisted living centers helps the elderly achieve the best quality of life at the sunset years. Senior Living can range from skilled nursing facilities to garden homes designed particularly for independent seniors.
Maintaining a Senior Living center is challenging with the tasks ranging from managing day-to-day tasks of seniors to serving meals or helping with the shopping. The core focus of the owners of Senior Living is to offer the best possible care and provide maximum comfort to the residents.
Asset tracking and inventory tracking in a senior living facility can become challenging and complex if it involves a lot of manual entries and equipment. All the data entry, inventory tracking, and asset management also need a lot more staff than most centers can afford.
Thanks to the popularity of smartphones, now asset tracking in senior facilities can be very easy with just an app. Smartphones are now used by 80% of the world’s population. Quick Response or QR codes are two-dimensional tools for smart asset tracking. These codes are used in many industries including e-commerce, healthcare, and manufacturing to speed up the process of asset tracking.
