K4Connect has broadened its partnership with HHHunt’s senior living division, which owns and manages Spring Arbor assisted living communities throughout the Mid-Atlantic, to bring K4Community to two additional Spring Arbor communities in Maryland.

The two new communities, Spring Arbor Crofton and Spring Arbor Frederick, are under construction and expected to open in the middle of this year and early next year, respectively. Once the communities are open, K4Community will be available to more than 300 Spring Arbor residents, as well as to their their family members and friends.

K4Community integrates home automation and health and social engagement features into one solution capable of automatically completing tasks, such as turning on lights or adjusting temperatures, while also allowing residents to engage with their fellow residents, family and friends via an app. And K4Community also provides staff members with management and analytics tools.

“Our residents have truly embraced the technology, which has added great value to their daily lives,” said Richard Williams, senior vice president of HHHunt’s senior living division. “Based on its popularity in our other communities, there was no doubt that we would build K4Community into our newest senior living communities right from the start.”

The total number of Spring Arbor communities in which the technology has been or will be implemented is now 11.

“Since our partnership with HHHunt’s senior living division began, we have continuously seen an adoption rate of 100 percent for K4Community’s home automation features, and daily tablet usage has increased significantly among residents,” said F. Scott Moody, co-founder, CEO and chief member advocate of K4Connect.
