CHARDON, OH — Maplewood Senior Living has announced a partnership with SafelyYou, an AI-enabled fall detection and prevention technology. The tech has now been installed at all three of Maplewood Senior Living’s Ohio-based communities, including Maplewood at Chardon, Maplewood at Cuyahoga Falls, and Maplewood at Twinsburg.
Maplewood’s team expects that SafelyYou’s technology will enhance the quality of care and create safer environments for its residents, particularly those with memory impairments. The core of its technology consists of consent-activated cameras equipped with artificial intelligence that can accurately detect falls. These cameras securely monitor residents’ activity in their apartments, and in the event of a fall, care staff is promptly notified.
As a safeguard of resident privacy, only fall-related events are recorded, and the video footage undergoes secure review by SafelyYou’s clinical experts and authorized care staff. SafelyYou’s post-incident analysis allows staff to pinpoint the underlying causes of falls, enabling proactive measures to prevent future incidents. SafelyYou’s approach to fall prevention has been proven to reduce falls by 40 percent and emergency room visits resulting from falls by 80 percent.
“At Maplewood Senior Living, resident safety and well-being are paramount, and excellence in senior care is always our primary objective,” said Vice President of Health & Wellness Brian Geyser in a press release. “Equipped with SafelyYou’s game-changing technology, we anticipate the reduction of adverse safety events, enhanced staff responsiveness, and ultimately, elevated quality of care we deliver across our communities. We are excited to witness the positive impact SafelyYou will have on the lives of our residents and their families.”
Based in Westport, Connecticut, Maplewood Senior Living operates 16 senior living communities in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio. There is an Upper East Side location in Manhattan, New York, within the company’s newest brand, Inspīr, and a second Inspīr location is under development in Washington, D.C.
