The collaboration brings safe, physical activity to Caremerge communities and senior care providers who need it to supplement in-person wellness activities. Spiro100 features more than 100 curated virtual fitness classes and wellness programming such as meditation.
“Adding Spiro100’s streaming classes to the Caremerge platform solves the challenges senior community activities coordinators, residents and management are facing,” said Nancy Koenig, CEO of Caremerge. “This partnership is an important step toward fulfilling our Smart Aging vision to provide technology solutions that deliver personalized and empowered resident wellness.”
Studies show that senior communities with well-developed wellness programs improve quality of life for their residents. A white paper by the International Council on Active Aging concluded that communities offering a wellness program increased resident satisfaction and prolonged their independence by an average of 2.7 years.
Each Spiro100 class — including 30 appropriate for memory care residents — is created and led by nationally recognized senior wellness experts to provide a purposeful fitness tool for senior care providers and better quality of life for residents.
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Caremerge, which will bring Spiro100 into more senior living communities across the country at a time when providing engagement programming has become exceedingly difficult,” said Howard Rochestie, co-founder of Spiro100. “Health and safety challenges have led many to make cuts to their fitness option. Health and wellness for older adults has never been more important than it is right now.”
