Vitality Living Receives Prestigious Argentum Best of the Best Award for Enhancing Resident Safety

When it comes to healthy aging, quite honestly, there’s a lot to do. You’re supposed to make sure to keep your body active and your brain engaged all while maintaining your social connections as well. Sure, the benefits to your overall well-being are worth the effort, but retirement is supposed to be a time with less responsibility on your plate, right? Well, it turns out that in senior living you can have your cake and eat it too, so to speak. Here’s how programs like our Vivid Life make keeping active, engaged, and connected easy and fun! 

Benefits of Healthy Aging 

Good things happen when you focus on healthy aging. In addition to feeling better overall, which in and of itself is a win, other benefits of keeping active, engaged, and connected include:  

  • Improved ability to do everyday things ​ 
  • Reduced impact of illness and chronic disease​ 
  • Enhanced mobility, flexibility, and balance
  • Improved sleep
  • Increased energy level
  • Reduced feelings of depression and stress
  • Increased feelings of happiness and self-confidence
  • Reduced risk of cognitive decline 
  • Increased mental adaptability and cognitive reserve 
  • Improved memory recall and problem-solving skills 
  • Improved concentration and attention to detail  

How Senior Living Can Help 

At home, particularly when living alone, it can be hard to stay as active, engaged, and connected as you’d like. From lack of opportunity to lack of motivation to lack of transportation to mobility challenges, and more, it’s tough, we get it! That’s why we created the Vivid Life program in our senior living communities. It’s composed of three parts: Vibrant Body, Vibrant Brain, and Vibrant Connections. Here’s what each entails:  

Vibrant Body We offer amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, a pool, walking trails, gardening opportunities, and even a dog park to help you stay active. A sample of activities includes:

Brentwood, TN, May 14, 2024 – Vitality Living, a leading senior living company operating 30 communities across the southeastern United States, is thrilled to announce its recognition as a recipient of the esteemed Argentum Best of Best Award. The award, bestowed by Argentum, the largest national association exclusively dedicated to senior living communities, acknowledges Vitality Living’s outstanding achievement in enhancing resident safety through proactive fall reduction.

Vitality Living’s winning program, “Enhancing Resident Safety through Proactive Fall Reduction,” addresses a critical challenge in memory care neighborhoods: overnight falls among residents. These incidents not only impact resident well-being but also staff retention and overall occupancy rates.

To tackle this challenge head-on, Vitality Living partnered with EyeWatch LIVE™ to implement a tailored solution. This innovative program utilizes AI-enabled cameras discreetly installed in designated areas to continuously monitor residents. Real-time alerts are sent to a nursing-staffed Monitoring Center, where trained agents assess residents’ needs and coordinate on-site assistance when necessary.

Why It Matters:

Falls and related incidents pose ongoing challenges in memory care communities, particularly during overnight shifts when staffing can be limited. With EyeWatch LIVE™, Vitality Living extends its staff capabilities to provide timely support and interventions. Since implementing the program, Vitality Living has seen a remarkable reduction in falls and enhanced resident safety.

Innovation in Action:

Vitality Living’s program stands out for its proactive and real-time intervention approach. By combining AI technology with human intervention, the company minimizes false alerts and empowers staff to optimize overnight care with minimal training. This innovative solution not only enhances resident safety but also streamlines staff workflows, leading to improved resident satisfaction and retention.

Proven Results:

Since integrating EyeWatch LIVE™, Vitality Living has seen impressive results. With over 4,000 interventions made, the fall rate across those interventions is less than 2%. Overall, overnight falls have decreased by over 60%. The staff response time averages an impressive 2 minutes and 48 seconds, well below the goal of 5 minutes. Additionally, the community has gained new residents as a result of this technology.


“We are incredibly honored to receive the Argentum Best of Best Award for our proactive approach to enhancing resident safety,” said Chris Guay, CEO of Vitality Living. “This recognition validates our commitment to innovation and excellence in senior care.”
