FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 15, 2022) – Today, K4Connect, a mission-driven healthtech company integrating the best in technology to serve and empower older adults and individuals living with disabilities, announced its expansion into the Southeast through a technology partnership with Cypress Living, the architect of innovative senior living solutions in Southwest Florida. The partnership brings senior living’s most advanced solution, K4Community, to more than 600 Cypress Cove residents, community staff and caregivers. This demographic’s growing appetite and need for technology is influencing a massive shift in the senior living industry, and Cypress Living is at the forefront of driving this change for its residents and supporting staff.
From in-home service that allows older adults to thrive while aging in place (Cypress at Home) to a flagship independent senior living community (Cypress Cove), the Cypress family of companies is Southwest Florida’s leading innovator of programs, services and residential developments that ensure the health and wellbeing of older adults.
“We’ve long seen the value in providing meaningful technologies to our residents and staff. Working with K4Connect is a significant step forward for us as we create a world-class digital experience for our residents, family members and future residents,” said Vice President of Innovation Joe Velderman, Cypress Living. “K4Community will be the ‘digital front door’ for our residents to interact with their homes, our community, their loved ones, and each other.”
K4Community will be integrated throughout the entire community, giving Cypress Cove residents access to a myriad of technologies that empower their independence and elevate daily living, while community staff benefit from enterprise tooling that expands operational efficiencies and enhances care.
At the core of K4Community is the company’s underlying patented FusionOS technology, senior living’s first and only operating system that integrates disparate devices, technologies and services – whether dozens or hundreds – into a single comprehensive system. At the same time, FusionOS is delivering data-driven insights and reporting for the community on resident tech usage, behavioral trends and in-home safety enabling more informed care and services.
“Cypress Living is truly an innovative organization that is bridging the gap between technology and older adults – a mission we both passionately share and one that has never been more important than right now,” said Scott Moody, CEO and Co-Founder, K4Connect. “We’re thrilled to bring our solutions to Cypress Cove to empower their residents through technology to live healthier and fulfilling lives.”
