Yamaha Unified Communications is helping residents at assisted living centres stay connected during coronavirus and beyond.
The company donated a CS-700 Video Sound Bar to Cornerstone at Milford Assisted Living & Compass Memory Support in Milford, Massachusetts for residents who struggle to see and hear calls on smart phones and tablets.
After the facility had to close its doors to visitors, technology became the main method of communication but smaller devices were not ideal and Yamaha UC director of global marketing and communications, whose 93-year-old grandmother is a resident in the facility, reached out to the company to suggest donating an all-in-one collaboration system.
“Staying connected while apart is vital to mental health, especially for those who are living in retirement and care communities and aren’t able to see their loved ones now,” says Meghan.
“While mobile devices are convenient, they don’t always provide sufficient volume or a large enough picture to see clearly. The CS-700 was built around the idea that conversations, whether they happen in a meeting room or in a care facility, need to be clear and stress-free to be effective and enjoyable.”
The CS-700 is designed to deliver the highest quality audio, video and collaboration capabilities.
