Catalyst is a signature program of Juniper, designed to integrate all resident services under one platform. It seamlessly summarizes and recommends medical, health, and wellbeing services tailored to individual residents’ needs, ushering in a new era of aging with a high-tech and high-touch approach. The program employs a lifestyle concierge who curates the health and wellness programs for each resident, delivering information via voice and digital technologies. The end result is a personalized life experience that fosters whole-person wellness and vitality, and catalogs services by resident usage.

Goldenberg will be instrumental in implementing technology as an enabler to achieve Juniper’s goals for Catalyst. By gathering data on residents’ needs, wants, and past enjoyments, the lifestyle concierge will make individualized recommendations for a life-enhancing schedule. Automation will be a key focus, ranging from on-demand dining menus, ordering from specified restaurants, requesting transportation, scheduling beauty and barber services, creating group card games and activities, and more, making it a true engagement tool. Families will also have access to their loved ones’ schedule for the purpose of making suggestions.

Juniper’s innovative Connect4Life program has been proven to improve residents’ care by decreasing hospitalizations, re-hospitalizations, and urgent care visits, while offering potential cost savings to public programs such as Medicare.
