Keeping Families Connected FREE for 90 Days
We LOVE Sherish Connect! The app is easy to use and our residents have been able to stay connected with family and friends without pause! We cannot thank Sherish enough for the number of smiles and laughs they have helped create! -- Allison Brown, Community Relations Director for Traditions at North Willow.
COVID-19 Restricted Visits
With “No Visitors Allowed”, you can immediately implement a solution to keep your Residents and their Families in daily contact through unlimited, private photo sharing. Families and invited friends share photos that can be enhanced by adding voice and text messages. Caregivers, Activity Directors or other staff can share these photos with the Resident on a tablet or smartphone.
With Covid-19 restrictions in place, you can connect Families for digital, round-the-clock “visitations” quickly:
- Sign up for Sherish Connect
- Enter names in the Sherish Connect Roster
- We provide onboarding and support for Families to download the app and add photos
- Your Residents view photos on tablets or smartphones shared by Caregivers, Activity and other staff.
- Families view photos sent by the Community of their loved ones on their smartphones or tablets.
- Optionally later, Residents Family Albums can be enjoyed on in-room TVs
I was desperate to find not only a new way to connect family members with their loved ones but also to provide something wonderful for in room visits. I was pleasantly surprised when so many of my family members signed on and started using this app. Paula Sevigne - Danby House
What does it cost?
FREE for 90 days - Following 90 days the cost is $5 per month per Resident with unlimited photos without size and usage restrictions.
How long does it take to begin providing Sherish Connect?
As soon as the Resident names and Family Coordinators are entered into the system, Families and Communities can start sharing photos right away.
How does Sherish Connect impact my staff?
With limited staff time, you are up and running with a 15-minute onboarding session. Staff will be able to enter information on the Roster and download the app to immediately begin using Sherish Connect.
Can staff add photos of the Resident?
Yes, through the Sherish Connect app Staff can simply add photos directly into the Resident’s Family Album for all to enjoy.
Do I have to buy new hardware?
No, Sherish Connect is app-based and can be accessed through any tablet or smartphone your Community may have already purchased.
Can Residents view their Family Albums on their in-room TVs?
Yes, Residents can view Family Albums on their own TV with the Sherish Connect HDMI device. Due to high demand and restrictions on visitation, we currently have limited supplies available. We are happy to work individually with you to meet your Community’s needs.
