Pathway to Living Unveils State-of-the-Art Senior Community


Chicago-based senior living provider incorporates latest technology in newest senior housing development

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., October 30, 2017 – Chicago-based senior living provider Pathway to Living debuted Grandbrier, an independent living, assisted living and memory care community located in Prospect Heights, Illinois in May. Described as a “distinctive senior living community,” Grandbrier utilizes a range of cutting edge technologies to keep residents safe and connected.

A Yardi client since 2002, Pathway to Living uses the Yardi Voyager® platform to service its entire portfolio along with other products from the Yardi® Senior Living Suite.

“We’ve incorporated technologies that help us better serve our residents and ensure safety and quality care for each of them,” said Diane Reier, Grandbrier’s lifestyle specialist, in a recent interview with Senior Housing News. “Residents’ family members are often the ones that choose the community and these tools let them know that their loved one is safe 24/7.”

In addition to a community-wide Wi-Fi network, the facility uses location-tracking technology to connect caregivers with patients via Spectralink phones linked to GPS-enabled pendants and motion detectors. A gym outfitted with HUR equipment allows seniors to create a safe and effective workout based on their personal health portfolio, which can be loaded onto the machine. “Strengthening muscles prevents falls, which means fewer trips to the hospital,” Reier told Senior Housing News.

Offering the latest software solutions specifically designed for the senior living/assisted living industry, Yardi’s comprehensive platform centralizes community management for improved operational oversight and seamless integration of disparate systems.

“Innovation in software integration remains an essential component of the Yardi Senior Living Suite,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living at Yardi. “Pathway to Living can harness the latest senior living technology to unify property management, finance and more for enhanced and responsive resident services.”
