Securitas Healthcare, a market leading provider of life safety and security solutions for the senior living and healthcare industry, is furthering its commitment to foster technology innovation in the senior living industry as Platinum Sponsor for the McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards.

“This is a time of rapid change for senior living, driven not only by demographic changes but also by the expectations and aspirations of the baby boom generation,” said Greg Borecki, Vice President, Senior Living & Fall Management, Securitas Healthcare. “As a leading vendor of safety and security solutions for senior living, Securitas Healthcare is committed to working with all concerned stakeholders, whether senior living communities, other solution providers or seniors themselves, to find new ways to ensure that every individual gets to experience aging on their own terms and with health and fulfilment. The McKnight’s Technology Awards are an excellent way to highlight and promote the many innovations that are already taking place to make this a reality. They provide a practical model to follow now and to inspire others to do more in the future, including us. We are very excited to be Platinum sponsor for the awards, and we look forward to seeing the great ideas that emerge.”

The McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards, now in their seventh year, are one of the premier recognitions for technology innovation in senior care. This year’s awards span 20 categories in two tracks: Skilled Care and Senior Living.

“As never before, this sector is harnessing technology to improve care, operations and the bottom line. This prestigious contest recognizes the best of the best. We are thrilled to welcome Securitas Healthcare as our Platinum sponsor,” said John O’Connor, Editorial Director for McKnight’s.
