Advanced Technology Blended with Old-Fashioned Care
Our compassionate, expert caregivers are at the heart of all we do at The Springs. We believe in strong personal relationships as a foundation for our care.
Technology has the power to enhance those relationships and to advance the care we provide at The Springs. We’re proud to offer innovative ways to connect with our residents and families while remaining true to our mission of old-fashioned, personal care.

Our proprietary CaraSyst® technology helps to manage the care we deliver to our beloved residents. CaraSyst® provides the ability to stay informed regarding our residents needs or changes in condition. This documentation helps our staff stay informed about a resident’s care, if any changes in needs or conditions arise.
CaraSysted Living includes several key components:
Before a new resident moves into The Springs, our resident care director will coordinate a care assessment. This assessment helps our staff understand the unique needs of each resident and is used to develop an initial care plan. Periodically, or as a resident’s condition changes, the care assessment is updated with the family.
The Resident Care Plan
Each resident’s care plan is tailored to meet his or her specific goals and desires, identifying both care management and service needs. Caregivers can interact appropriately by reviewing the resident’s specific interventions and understanding the flow of care services for the day. All of this is done using a secured portal to access the care plan via CaraSyst®.
Last but not least, is the final piece of the CaraSysted® Living Program. This reporting and documentation feature provides the staff the ability to monitor any care changes in the care plan and keeps them abreast of any trends that need to be addressed. There may be times our resident care director will review these changes so they can be communicated to the families and provide an understanding regarding the care of their loved one.

The Springs has adopted a state-of-the art E-MAR system that allows our staff to coordinate with both physicians and our pharmacy to ensure fast and safe medication acquisition and administration. Built with an electronic library of pharmacy information as well as resident identification, our staff scan residents’ picture identification to be certain the correct medication is delivered to them. The system includes time-stamping for more accurate record-keeping and allows staff to monitor trends in areas such as medications that are refused. The system uses safe packaging methods for medications and tracks dosages delivered.
The SimpleC Companion Tablet is an extension of the award-winning SimpleC technology that we will be beta testing soon. A touch-screen tablet delivers comforting, familiar sounds and pictures to residents while helping them maintain a reliable daily routine. Family members assist by providing favorite photographs and music their loved one especially enjoys; these sounds and pictures are uploaded and become tangible ways to connect with old, deep memories that remain strong despite cognitive impairments.
The tablet not only allows meaningful one-on-one interactions through connecting with each resident’s life story, but it also promotes visual and auditory stimulation. Icons and touch-screen technology make using the tablet a simple, effective alternative to drug-dependent interventions for residents who may become anxious or agitated.
