Cubigo Offers Free Resource to Keep Residents and Families Connected During Pandemic
SAN FRANCISCO–Cubigo, an integrated platform for Senior Living, announced on April 1 that they will be making access to their communication suite free for 3 months in order to alleviate stress on communities as they battle the coronavirus crisis. This resource keeps residents and families up to date on the most recent community news and information, prevents loneliness and retains social connections while in quarantine, and keeps team members efficient by reducing administrative minutia.
“The challenges we face right now are truly extraordinary, and with the narrative constantly changing it is easy for residents and their loved ones to worry. We have been and remain committed to keeping families and communities connected during this crisis” said Cubigo CEO Geert Houben. “The biggest challenges communities have been experiencing throughout the spread of COVID-19 has been keeping the lines of communication easy and open for residents and their families. The other issue we need to address now is that loneliness can be equally detrimental, so we need to keep residents engaged. Now more than ever, sharing the most recent news and information and providing simple ways to connect with each other is vital.”
The solution being offered from Cubigo addresses these three main challenges with unique modules (known as cubes) in the following way:
- Residents and families stay informed with a single source of information via Cubigo’s attractive news feed and community information modules.
- Social connections between residents and staff can be maintained by signing up for contactless activities, virtually participating in committees, and individual or group chats.
- Staff can easily update community news, respond to inquiries, and keep resident information up to date in a single environment.
Cubigo has also developed a rapid implementation process, with communities being fully functional within 24 hours.
“We are already witnessing Cubigo’s positive effect on clients during this crisis with an exponential increase of interactions from families. This is Cubigo’s chance to empower our most at-risk demographic as well as those who care for them. Together we are going to win.” Houben added.
A fully-integrated platform, Cubigo has additional functionality as well, including but not limited to: digital signage with an in-suite TV channel, remote meal ordering to mitigate contact, visitor registration, and voice control through smart speakers. With 35,000 users worldwide, Cubigo works on any smartphone, tablet, or computer with easy to use apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.
