Sentrics Launches Engage360 Platform to Drive Whole-Health Engagement
New Solution Engages Resident Mind, Body and Spirit From the TV
Oct 14, 2020—Sentrics, today announced that its revolutionary new platform, Engage360SM, which turns the resident TV into an interactive engagement engine, is now available. Using a big-button remote, or their very own voice, residents can access applications on the TV that include dining and activities, senior-safe exercises, mood-enhancing music, and more to stay connected to social and health resources that improve their whole health, increase satisfaction and enable more informed care decisions. While the residents improve their sense of independence and fortify their physical and mental strength, Engage360 captures minute data points about each resident’s habits to recognize changes in behavior to inform care decisions.
“Whether it’s because of health scares or choice, many residents in senior living communities are spending more time alone,” said Sentrics CEO Darin LeGrange. “This isolation has led to an increase in boredom and depression as residents struggle to create meaningful connections and purpose. Engage360 provides the social engagement and purpose residents lose when they miss out on community activities, while providing caregivers and family members valuable information to help improve the overall health and wellbeing of the resident.”
Sentrics, is the emerging technology leader in the senior living industry. Last fall, it announced the comprehensive, data-driven software suite Sentrics360SM to create a 360-degree view —physical, medical, social and behavioral — of the wellbeing of each resident. This game-changing suite integrates life safety, RTLS, contact tracing and case management; 3-in-1 entertainment with bundled TV, internet and voice services; whole-health engagement; and AI-based insights to help communities nationwide transform into more sophisticated, clinically oriented, risk-management businesses. Engage360 is the engagement platform in this comprehensive suite and includes in-house applications as well as integrations to popular third-party solutions.

“The Engage360 solution is the most intuitive way to drive meaningful resident engagement on the market today,” said Chad Harris, Sentrics Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Engage360 and Entertain360 product lines. “Because it works on the TV and uses a simple interface, residents are instantly comfortable with it. And rather than requiring another piece of equipment like Alexa for voice control, we built our own voice application on top of the same tools that Amazon uses for Alexa. This gives us much more flexibility in delivering a voice-activated solution that truly works the way a senior communicates.”
