Smart Living

A smarter approach to healthier living.

Smart sensor technologies have revolutionized the way businesses approach and solve problems. At Eskaton, it’s no different. We believe smarter is better, and that embracing smart sensor technologies will help transform the aging experience. Partnering with K4Connect, we are implementing smart home features to meet a variety of needs for older adults. With these technologies residents will be able to connect with their families and friends, stay engaged with their community, reduce fall risk and have advanced smart lighting systems that promote ease and comfort. This signature program is just one of many developments to enhance the well-being and independence of residents.
