Sentrics has acquired SeniorTV, which focuses on television entertainment for senior living communities.

Sentrics is building a technology platform for residents that includes resident safety through remote monitoring, customizable programming and new resources.

“For too long, seniors have only been able to use their TVs for passive entertainment,” said

Darin LeGrange, CEO of Sentrics. “By integrating SeniorTV into our existing multifaceted solution, we will transform the TV into something that empowers senior residents to step beyond mere entertainment to engage their fellow residents, families and the community through easy-to-use two-way interaction.”

Senior TV founder Rick Briggs will stay on as president and lead marketing for Sentrics as the executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

“This combination of leading companies brings a tremendous opportunity to improve seniors’

lives through technology while enabling care providers to reduce operating costs and gain better data for decision-making,” Briggs said.
