SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SONIFI™ Health, the leader in interactive patient and guest technology solutions, today announced that MonteCedro, an innovative retirement community, has implemented the SONIFI Health Senior Living Engagement System. The system provides a simple and intuitive interactive communication and information tool that residents access through a tablet PC.

The resident engagement system provides access to a wide spectrum of information designed to improve the lifestyles of residents. An intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface makes staff-to-resident, resident-to-staff and even resident-to-resident communication fast, simple and reliable.

"SONIFI Health's interactive tools will help facilitate communications throughout our retirement community and allow our residents to be thoroughly engaged in daily activities and with one another," commented David Weidert, Executive Director at MonteCedro.

Using a tablet PC, residents can easily access email and internal messaging, local community information, event calendars, educational videos, and wellness resources. Additionally, residents can also send requests and complete surveys, register for activities, make dining reservations, view the facility camera feed, and receive emergency alerts.

"MonteCedro's philosophy on innovation in providing a superior senior living experience provided the ideal environment for the SONIFI solution," explained Ahmad Ouri, CEO of SONIFI. "Our expertise in the acute care marketplace and hospitality industry has enabled us to deliver a personalized solution that fit the specific needs of the senior living environment," Ouri added.

About MonteCedro and Episcopal Communities and Services
During its 90+ years of service, Episcopal Communities & Services has had many conversations with older adults. This experience inspired their development of MonteCedro, a new retirement community in Altadena, California. Seniors want to live in their own homes, and if care and personal services are needed, they would like to have them available in that setting. The management team of MonteCedro listened and designed a community that gives residents what they desire in terms of healthcare and wellness services. MonteCedro embraces the aging in place model, allowing residents to remain in the home they have chosen and receive excellent a' la carte care. MonteCedro also offers a neighborhood of apartments specifically for assisted living and memory support. The vision for MonteCedro became a spectacular new reality — a community that residents are proud to call their own, where they can have the care they need, when they need it.
