Join RCare at 2019 LeadingAge

LeadingAge is an enormous gathering of not-for-profit organizations across the entire field of aging services. It is designed for participants to think, to learn, to network and to grow. This year, the attendees are challenged to imagine the future of aging with the theme: “What if?”

We love this theme. RCare has always pushed the boundaries of what a nurse call system can do and we’ve continued to innovate with the phrase “what if” in mind.

What if your nurse call system could help you with resident satisfaction? What if it could help with staff retention? What if it could give you actionable data to help with QAPI? What if it could save your staff time by integrating with other systems you’re already using for wander management, door access, or records? What if it could save you money by working with your existing hardware? What if it could bring you powerful features, no matter what your size or budget?

You see, we have been thinking about this for a while. And we are inspired:

What if RCare gave you super powers? What if your response times became super response times?

This year at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo, RCare has a challenge for your community: “improve response times and improve your resident experience”.

What is the average response time for your community? Do you know? Can you measure it? Is it improving?

You can’t manage what you don’t measure.

Everyone in the community benefits when response times improve. RCare gives you the power to look at your response times and make the change. When you do, you will start to see immediate benefits.

What if we vowed to build a solution customized to your needs?

What if we made it affordable?

What if we made it an easy choice?

No matter what kind of community, no matter what your size or budget, RCare can help. Stop by Booth #1624 and talk to RCare about how RCare’s advanced nurse call systems can empower you to make big improvements in your response times. And while you’re there, take your photo and post it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #RMan or #RWoman for your chance to win great prizes.

RCare is ten years old. A decade! And what a great ten years it has been. We’ve expanded into 45 states, as well as Canada, Malaysia, and Denmark. We’ve been named a “Top 100” business by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce. We won a 2016 Health Care Achievement Award for Innovation. And we’ve made a whole lot of senior communities safer and more efficient.

That calls for a celebration, so let’s party! Yes, we’ve got some things planned to celebrate the occasion at LeadingAge. Here’s what’s on tap:

We’re giving away a lot of prizes at LeadingAge in Indianapolis. Like more than $1000 worth of prizes. Want one? Just stop by our booth (2418) and enter to win. While you’re there, pick up a free RCare medallion. If we spot you wearing it on the show floor, you’ll win even more.

All that winning is thirsty work. Why not  have a drink on us? Join us at our Mix & Mingle at Champions Sports Bar & Grill. We’re partnering with our friends at GrandCare and Laura Mitchell Consulting to bring you this event. It’s Monday, October 31st from 7 to 9 PM. Champions is located at 350 W. Maryland St. in Indianapolis–an easy walk from the conference center. Get your free drink coupon here and don’t be late!

While you’re at LeadingAge, don’t miss us at this year’s Shark Tank. Competitors get 5-7 minutes to pitch their innovative idea to the LeadingAge “sharks.” Only the smartest survive–and win up to $250. We won that prize last year and we’re fixin’ to do it again. Don’t miss it.

RC-PPP 2In March, RCare will be stealing the spotlight at the LeadingAge Peak Leadership Summit, where we will introduce our new lightweight, waterproof Pretty Pretty Pendant. This push-button pendant, available in a variety of patterns and designs, can be worn as a wristband or necklace.  We have two distinct designs for our Pretty Pretty Pendant Series: a fashionable, beautiful and sleek design for those who don’t wish to sacrifice elegance for security and also our latest model, the Patriot Pendant. This is a symbol of liberty, freedom and independence that can be worn proudly by any American.

“We’re really passionate about combining style with function,” said RCare CEO Myron Kowal, “These beautiful pendants can be worn in the shower, out in the garden, anywhere really, and they provide peace of mind to the wearer and carer. They’re also nice looking. We think this is an essential piece to actual compliance.”

The Peak Summit, held March 14-16 in Washington, D.C. is a unique conference that brings together the highest-level executives and business leaders in the aging and technology industry, and fosters education, strategic thinking, and networking.

RCare’s Myron Kowal will be sponsoring a reservation-only Aging 2.0 Fireside Chat on the Sunday evening leading up to the conference. The event,  hosted by Aging 2.0, features roundtable panelists speaking on  “Digital Aging: Successful Technology Implementation in Senior Care.” Panelists include  include Kowal of RCare, Pete Celano of MedStar and Charlie Hillman of GrandCare Systems. It will be moderated by Laura Mitchell from Laura Mitchell Consulting (LMC), an expert in marketing and growth strategies for the aging industry.
