Upgrade Your Senior Living Community with Resort Style Dialing
Amenities in a senior living community come in all shapes and sizes. While some are extravagant, every amenity is important to keep your community competitive.
One simple amenity that can make a difference in the quality of life of residents in your senior living community is resort style dialing.
What is resort style dialing?
Resort style dialing refers to the ability to use a phone anywhere in your community and dial another phone within the community with a simple extension, rather than dialing a full phone number. For example, if a resident wants to call a friend in room 1040, they can simply dial “1040” instead of a long number.
Most hotels and offices offer this convenience, but it’s actually very affordable as an amenity at senior living communities.
Why is resort style dialing beneficial?
It can be beneficial for reasons that are especially important to a senior living community:
- Easier to remember: As we age, our memory is one of the first things to fade. It can be helpful for seniors to dial locations throughout the community by extensions as opposed to full seven or ten digit phone number that can be challenging to remember.
- Dependable Technology: If your phone system has been pieced together over the years as the community has grown, your extension dialing could have become inconsistent. Resort style dialing eliminates this inconsistency by ensuring unique extensions across the entire community.
- Camaraderie: It may seem unimportant, but resort style dialing can offer comfort and familiarity. Dialing a simple three or four digit number helps residents feel part of a unified community, which makes them more comfortable and secure in their new home.
