What Are Private-Door Automatic Door Operators

Private-Door automatic door openers are life-enhancing products that were purposely designed to address the special needs of senior living. Private-Door simplifies the day for residents who use wheelchairs, scooters, walkers and canes by automating the doors to their apartments. Private-Door is a signature amenity that current and prospective residents will see as an exceptional service your organization provides to enrich their lives.

Enrich The Quality Of Life For Residents

Independent Living Facilities provide an environment and amenities to seniors that assure a �quality of life� that is purposely intended for them. Because a majority of residents use either a wheelchair, walker or cane everyday, facilities are designed to accommodate these assistive devices.  Private-Door promotes a self-reliant lifestyle by removing the barrier their apartment door can be to their independence. Private-Door simplifies their day by making the opening and closing of their apartment door a simple act again. With remote control convenience, residents will enjoy uninhibited access to activities and services they value most.

Enhance The Facility's Image

Concerned providers give careful and thoughtful consideration to the individual as well as the collective needs of the residents. They provide specialized services, social activities, security and other amenities that encourage self-reliance and participation in community activities. Private-Door compliments these efforts by assisting the residents to be self-reliant and involved in social activities. By automating the apartment doors of residents a major impediment to their independence is eliminated. Prospective clients will recognize and appreciate the effort taken to ensure accessibility to their apartment and to the facility�s activities and amenities.

Increase Revenues And Minimize Vacancies

Independent Living Facilities require residents to be able to perform activities of daily living with a minimum of staff support. Studies show that the ability to enter and leave one�s dwelling is the most common activity seniors need assistance with. With Private-Door resident dependence on staff for assistance is reduced, freeing staff to fulfill other duties. Private-Door may reduce potential vacancies. Current residents will remain independent longer, extending their stay in the facility. Automating the apartment doors for potential residents will expand the new client base to include individuals who need additional assistance without impact to staff.

Reduce Potential Liability By Minimizing Potentials For Falls

Private-Door reduces the potential for falls by residents who use walkers or canes. These residents find the opening of their apartment door a major challenge. The first challenge is opening a self closing door while using a walker or cane. The second challenge is to hold the self closing door open while passing through the doorway. Private-Door eliminates this frustrating activity while reducing the potential for a fall.

Reduce Maintenance

Residents with walkers and wheelchairs will unintentionally damage the self closing doors and wall treatments as they enter and exit their apartment. Private-Door will virtually eliminate this damage by opening and holding open the door while they pass through the doorway.
