Senior Care

Why do senior care communities use two-way radios? 

We have been proudly serving the senior care industry since 2008 and have provided two-way radio equipment to thousands of communities. Along the way, we have spoken to locations who were already using radios and to locations that did not use radios. 

Being the curious bunch that we are, we needed to know how the staff were communicating with each other if they weren't using radio. With the assistance of Southern Illinois University, we sent surveys to several hundred communities to find out. 

As expected, there were many different methods being used to try and communicate with each other including cell phones, business telephones, overhead paging, and simply yelling down the hallway, to name a few. However, after analyzing the data, what caught our eye was the amount of time being spent tracking down another team member when these other forms of communications failed. 

The data revealed that the average senior care staff member, regardless of position, spends an eye-popping 5.8 hours per week (over 300 hours per year) tracking down a fellow employee if they don't use radios. 


This results in an incredible waste of time, money, and resources, while dramatically lowering a community's productivity level. Having this knowledge in hand, makes it very easy to justify investing in two-way radios for your staff and your return on investment is basically instant.
