“We saw a need…”

It is a familiar lead-in to so many startup stories. In Amy Johnson’s case, it led to the 2015 founding of LifeLoop, a cloud-based platform designed to streamline operations for senior living communities, actively engage residents and connect families.

The idea stemmed from her own family’s experience with relatives in senior living and what seemed to be pervasive communications gaps – both among family members and in dealing with facility staff.

“Our number one goal is to improve the care and overall experience of residents living in senior living communities. We believe this involves creating and fostering great relationships between community staff, residents and the residents’ families, which results in personalized care and attention,” says Johnson, LifeLoop co-founder.

To that end, HIPPA-compliant LifeLoop offers a robust set of features, including resident tracking & reporting, an activity calendar builder and designer, resident and family portals, community TV displays, messaging, and maintenance and transportation features that help manage and schedule resident requests.
