They were, for most of their lives, the largest generation in history. Every year, more and more baby boomers reach retirement age and many of them choose to find happiness in a senior living facility. These aren’t the “old age homes” of years past — these are vibrant, exciting communities with activities, and social clubs, and honestly it makes me a little bit jealous. It looks like a great time to retire.
While some senior communities are designed for people who can get by independently, others are designed like large apartment buildings where people live as well as they can for themselves but assistance is never that far away. In this sort of facility, residents pay a fixed rate that often includes everything needed for daily life, including television.
Baby boomers were the original television generation, and it makes sense that they would continue to want the same TV experience they have had their entire lives. They want choice, they want entertainment, and they want a great selection. They want DIRECTV.
DIRECTV has exclusive programs for companies that operate senior living facilities and can give residents exactly what they are looking for. Seniors can get an easy-to-understand live TV experience with a simplified remote, or for those power users (and this is a growing group among seniors) they can get practically everything that a regular DIRECTV installation promises. Equipment can be centrally located so seniors can use their own TV and remote with nothing else in the room, or genuine DIRECTV receivers can be placed in the room for those who are looking for a larger channel selection.
As the operator of a senior living facility, the choice is up to you. You can implement the entire DIRECTV channel package, or choose the channels you want your residents to see and pay only for the ones you want. It’s that simple.
You don’t need to have a fancy engineering degree to get DIRECTV service to all your residents, either. The new generation of equipment is smaller than ever before and comes ready to install with only minor tweaks needed onsite. Once it’s up and running, it goes for long periods without needing any attention at all, and when it does need a change or repair, often times this can be done remotely by trained support staff, making it easier for you to focus on doing what you do best.
