Digital signage in retirement homes

In Germany we are experiencing demographic change. Due to medical progress, people are getting older and older and the demographic group of people over 60 is growing. At the same time, the number of people in the younger age segment is declining. This is due to the changed birth rate. Fewer children, more senior citizens – this means that the need for retirement homes is very high and will continue to rise in the future. Operators of such facilities aim to make daily life as easy as possible for their residents. Interactive kiosk systems can be a great help here.

Digital signage can be used in many ways in senior citizen homes. Texts and displays are presented in large, easily readable writing for the visually impaired residents and, if required, read aloud over loudspeakers. The devices are suitable for showing appointments, daily programs, activities, advertisements, daily meals or content for special occasions. The contents can be easily entered in advance by staff of the facility.

Digital signage also provides added value in any room – lobby, dining room or other meeting rooms. The individual design and equipment options make them visually appealing and suitable for any purpose. One option, for example, is to integrate a touch screen to guarantee interactive operation and thus improve the user experience, e.g. for registrations for day trips.

Entertainment suitable for senior citizens

Another possible application for kiosk systems is entertainment for senior citizens. The installations can be programmed so that games and puzzles are an option. Even non-residents would like to enjoy an evening of games on a multi-touch table. Such devices have two advantages: senior citizens remain cognitively active, which can almost be a precautionary measure against Alzheimer’s disease in advanced age. And in addition, they can pursue an entertaining activity together with children, grandchildren and other visitors, which promotes social cohesion. This is not negligible and can be maintained by adding another feature: Residents can stay in touch with their relatives and friends via video telephony.

Digital Signage for health care

The topic of health also plays a major role in retirement homes, because people generally wish to be healthy and fit even in old age. How can digital signage make a contribution here? Kiosk systems can reproduce all information on the subject of health and prevention. This means that people are more informed about certain illnesses and are able to call for help as quickly as possible in an emergency. This is particularly important for senior citizens who feel uncomfortable talking to others about their complaints. Kiosk systems are also an enormous help for the staff. Because with electronically recorded and stored health data of the residents, their doctors are immediately aware of illnesses and can provide help more quickly.

It is clear that digital signage can be of great benefit in many areas of a retirement home. Whether in the dining room to display daily meals or for a digital board game in the evening with other residents. Due to demographic change, in the next few decades senior citizens will inhabit facilities that have grown up as digital natives and consider kiosk systems to be almost commonplace. The current generation of seniors would have to get used to the devices, but will quickly recognize the usefulness.
