Brightmore of East Memphis Taps into Technology
Providing the Ultimate in Care for Seniors

March 16, 2024

Adult children can’t be with their elderly parents at all times as they might like. Nothing brings more comfort to families of residents of Brightmore of East Memphis senior living community than knowing that their loved ones are safe and well cared.

Family members already have peace of mind because of Brightmore of East Memphis’s dedicated staff. Enhancing this level of confidence is the recent certification of Brightmore of East Memphis as a Nxtgen Care Community. Nxtgen is a tool using technology to establish care goals for residents, ensure their interactions with staff are positive and meaningful, and that they are, at all times, safe.

As part of the Nxtgen program residents in assisted living and memory care at Brightmore of East Memphis wear a social bracelet called a Liveable. The Nxtgen Care Liveable electronically gathers data on residents’ location, engagement and care. It also features a button that residents can press whenever they need assistance—no matter where they are in the community or the time of day.

Staff also wear a similar device and carry a mobile phone during their shift, providing a map of the live positions of residents and other staff members. The Nxtgen Care Liveable enables the team to respond quickly to the needs of residents.

“It’s a safety measure,” says Tommy Baker, campus director of the community.
“We can look on a screen, know where a resident is, and respond to their needs.”

A resident of assisted living can move about the community as they wish –eating with friends in the dining room, enjoying a card game in an activity space, or taking a yoga class. The Nxtgen device enables their requests for assistance to be answered promptly.

Although memory care is a secure area, Baker says Nxtgen provides an extra level of security and peace of mind for residents and their families. The Nxtgen Care Liveables are waterproof and wearable 24 hours a day, requiring only a 15-minute charge every three to four months. The information provided by the Nxtgen device enables Brightmore of East Memphis to monitor how staff members deliver care and how much time they spend with each resident. Furthermore, it facilitates staff working together as a team to provide the best service possible.

Baker says a couple of Brightmore of East Memphis’s core values are to promote “transparency and to be in constant search of ways the community can better serve residents and their families.” Nxtgen helps Brightmore of East Memphis accomplish those goals, Baker says.
