The Revolutionary AI-Enabled Tech – Proven to Reduce Falls by 40% and Emergency Room Visits Resulting From Falls by 80% – Soon in All of Maplewood’s Ohio Communities
Ohio, U.S. – December 19, 2023 – Maplewood Senior Living – one of the country’s premier operators of luxury senior living communities – is pleased to announce a partnership with SafelyYou, a revolutionary artificial intelligence-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.
SafelyYou’s cutting-edge technology is poised to enhance the quality of care and create safer environments for Maplewood’s 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, ensuring immediate assistance for residents in need.
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 innovative approach to fall prevention has been proven to reduce falls by an impressive 40% and emergency room visits resulting from falls by a staggering 80%.
“SafelyYou began with the mission to make dementia care safer by reducing falls,” said George Netscher, Founder and CEO at SafelyYou. “Over 100,000 clinically reviewed on-the-ground events later, we’ve transformed the industry, enabling residents to age safely with dignity, instilling greater peace of mind for family members, decreasing time on the ground after a fall occurs, and detecting silent falls that would have been otherwise unknown.”
By embracing this partnership with SafelyYou, Maplewood Senior Living upholds its dedication to providing the highest standard of care for its residents and ensuring their safety. “At Maplewood Senior Living, resident safety and well-being are paramount, and excellence in senior care is always our primary objective, said Brian Geyser, Maplewood’s Vice President of Health & Wellness. “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.”
