Tallgrass Creek Launches Digital App to Enhance Community Connections

Tallgrass Creek, an Erickson Living retirement community, recently celebrated the launch of My Erickson, a digital application for residents. More than 51 residents activated the app in just one day.

“We are thrilled to see our residents enjoying the benefits of the My Erickson digital app,” said Pam Haman, Associated Executive Director at Tallgrass Creek. “In today’s increasingly digital world, My Erickson will be an important tool in keeping our residents up to date on all the events and activities happening at Tallgrass Creek every day, and a convenient way for them to stay connected to one another.”

My Erickson was developed by Erickson Living in response to resident feedback and market research which reflects that today’s seniors are becoming more connected than ever and have a strong interest in digital technologies and applications that can easily connect them with community services and programs.

The free app will enhance Tallgrass Creek’s retirement lifestyle by providing residents with easy, instant access to diverse information sources, including community information such as maps and phone numbers, messages, dining menus and nutrition information, activity calendars, transit schedules, local directories, staff information and more. Family members of residents are also welcomed to download My Erickson to stay connected and keep up with what is happening at Tallgrass Creek.

To introduce residents to all My Erickson has to offer, the community held multiple Activation Sessions in its on-campus Blue Sky restaurant. Staff, led by Haman, helped residents download and open the app on a variety of mobile devices, including laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Once activated, the My Erickson Resident Group led training on how to use the program.

The community will continue to offer Activation and Training sessions to all residents interested in utilizing the app.
