Spectrum Retirement
Wins Technology Award

October 5th, 2018 -

Spectrum Retirement Communities, a HeartLegacy business partner, recently garnered the Gold Award in the 2018 McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards.

Spectrum placed first in McKnight’s “Dignity” category for its brand-wide Life Story Program. A component of the HeartLegacy solution, this program captures and preserves — through video — the life stories of Spectrum’s residents.

After professional editing by HeartLegacy, life story videos are passed along as gifts to families and future generations.

Benefits cited from this program include stronger relationships between residents and staff; world-class service to families; and enhanced person-centered and reminiscence therapy initiatives.

According to McKnight’s, winning entries would: “a) describe the technology involved and how it was applied; b) describe and document how dignity improved; and c) address the overall impact of the change.”

Congrats to Spectrum for a well-earned honor! Read the full story here.
