Silversphere recognizes that every community can’t afford the latest emergency call technology. This year we’re awarding a free Emergency Call System to one outstanding low-income not-for-profit senior housing community in need. The awarded community will receive a brand-new emergency call system, including installation and real-time management reporting, at no cost.
If you know a community who deserves and could really benefit from a new emergency call system, nominate them today.
“This new Silversphere emergency call system is going to modernize our facility in many ways. For our existing residents, it is going to provide more independence and added safety. For the families of our residents, they will be more comfortable knowing their loved one’s have access to staff with the touch of a button. Thank you for recognizing Titusville Towers."
Beth Ann Walker, Manager, Titusville Towers
“With components of our ecall system dating back to 1977, it goes without saying that this new system from Silversphere has really been a blessing! This ecall system giveaway has not only helped by modernizing our equipment and improving our operational efficiency and capacity, but has also positioned us to provide our residents with a greater sense of privacy and independence.”
Beverly Stickles, President/CEO, Cedar Lane Senior Living
Anyone. A fellow community, a resident, a community employee, the residential board of a community are some example of expected nominators.
501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or a tribe/tribally designated housing entities located in the United States that have a stated mission of providing housing to low-income seniors.
Silversphere is accepting applications now through December 31, 2016. The recipient will be announced in February.
The new Silversphere ATMOS™ Emergency Call System will include: all main components, such as central equipment and wireless access points; resident devices, such as pull cords and pendants; staff devices, such as pagers and staff-reset pendants; installation; and one year of STRATOS™, Silversphere’s internet-based management reporting solution. This is a non-cash grant.
Our wireless repeaters require 110V power outlets to be available in locations throughout the community. If during our project planning process we discover inadequate 110V power outlet availability, the community will need to make those power outlets available at their expense. Also, a responsible onsite staff member will need to be made available for a few hours during the planning process to be our project ambassador - making decisions for the community and coordinating onsite activities. All care staff and managers will need to be made available at the conclusion of the installation for training.
The grant will be given to a selected community in need that demonstrates the importance of bringing housing and services together in a safe and caring environment to meet the needs of lower income elderly. Applications that include specifics or stories, and indicate how the business will improve and resident lifestyle will be enhanced with the award of this system, will receive additional consideration.
All applications must be submitted through our online application form.Silversphere may request a site visit before awarding the grant.
