Technology Enhances Resident, Family Experience at Franciscan Communities

May 30, 2023 - Corporate


Franciscan Communities launched a new program designed to enhance the lives of residents and their families through improved communication and increased engagement.

The technology – offered through iN2L + LifeLoop – is being introduced at communities this month.

This comprehensive engagement software offers a secure portal where families can communicate with staff and stay informed with calendars, photos and other information, providing peace of mind that their loved ones are happy, engaged and enjoying themselves.

“I am thrilled that our communities will be using a technology engagement system that supports the foundation of the Ministry’s mission: To Celebrate Life and Serve with Joy,” said Corporate Director of Life Enrichment and Memory Care Constance Brasher. “This platform will enrich the lives of our residents, families and team members, and I look forward to seeing the meaningful and measurable impact this will have at each of our communities.”

In addition to resident engagement tracking, the platform also streamlines operations for community staff, and provides a seamless system for residents to register for activities, put in maintenance work orders for their apartments or request transportation to appointments.

“We are very excited about the partnership with iN2L + LifeLoop,” stated President and CEO Regina Umanskiy. “Now, more than ever, it’s so important that we embrace and leverage technology and person-centered content, as much as possible, to create meaningful and genuine connections for our residents, associates and family members, from wellness programs, lifelong learning, family engagement to overall community operations.”
