Every person wants control over their environment and the most natural way of interacting is through voice. Creating a fully livable environment must include a voice assistant to ensure all persons’ regardless of physical abilities are empowered to interact with their home. Eskaton partnered with K4 Connect to make voice assistance a reality to residents living at Eskaton Village Roseville. They are the first assisted living community to fully deploy Alexa. Residents now can use their voice to adjust their lights and thermostat, call the front desk, ask for the day’s events and menu.
