Verizon, Healthsense Bring Home-Health Solutions to a Top Retirement Community in Virginia
Date:12/6/2012

FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Residents of one of the country's top-rated retirement communities will soon be able to experience the benefits of remote health care monitoring to ensure resident safety, security and quality of care.

Verizon Enhanced Communities and Healthsense Inc. announced on Thursday (Dec. 6) the launch of their first joint initiative -- at The Virginian, a 350-unit continuing-care retirement community in Fairfax. The community is the first in the U.S. to have both Healthsense's wellness-related products and services and Verizon's FiOS TV, Internet and voice services.

The Virginian, which offers independent and assisted living, skilled nursing, rehabilitation and home health services, strives to provide high-quality care and manage changing health conditions in a way that allows residents to stay in their preferred home as long as possible.

Healthsense supports these objectives via a campuswide Wi-Fi infrastructure supported by Verizon FiOS, a 100 percent fiber-optic communications network.  The Healthsense solution comes with a suite of devices that can be used to monitor residents' daily living activities and to enable residents to notify the staff in the event of a personal emergency, such as a fall.

Healthsense enables the staff at The Virginian to respond faster and intervene earlier, while automating or simplifying many of the on-site care staff's daily processes.

"Healthsense technology enables us to provide the outstanding care our residents expect, giving them peace of mind, safety and security," said Chris Isherwood, executive director at The Virginian. "As a senior care community, we gain a partner who will help us create a technology-enabled care environment that's among the best in the country."

In the future, Verizon and Healthsense will launch similar joint initiatives at continuing-care retirement communities, assisted living facilities and other senior living communi
