On May 12, 2022 by Libbie Chapuran
On May 4, Knute Nelson, a LeadingAge Minnesota member, announced a partnership with K4Connect, a mission-driven health-tech company integrating technology to serve and empower older adults and individuals living with disabilities.
This technology partnership brings innovative care and services to older adults in Knute Nelson's senior living campuses, Autumn Cottages, Crystal Brook, Grand Arbor, Knute Nelson Care Center and Nelson Gables. With K4Connect's solution designed specifically for older adults, Knute Nelson serves over 8,000 residents and clients each year through their continuum of aging services.
With K4Community, residents have access to digital engagement that keeps them informed with real-time updates and enables greater socialization and connection to loved ones. The challenges of the pandemic over the last two years amplified the urgency for these types of digital resources in senior living, quickly shifting technology investments from amenity to necessity for operators across the nation.
“We’re committed to supporting the region’s aging adult community by enriching the lives of everyone that we serve. Keeping pace with technologies that can provide real value to our residents is key to making that vision a reality," said Knute Nelson VP of Operations Brittney Thoreson. "We couldn't be more excited to add K4Community to our resident and staff technology offerings at Knute Nelson."
K4Connect is the leading provider of technologies for senior living residents and staff. Knute Nelson is the company’s first operator partnership in Minnesota, expanding upon its already growing impact in the Midwest.
