Many retirement communities lie somewhere between a home and a medical facility, depending on the needs of your residents. Our security team has extensive experience working in medical facilities and completes periodic training to ensure they stay at the top of their field. They will also prioritize your residents’ safety and comfort to ensure that your community still feels like home.
We understand that retirement communities have unique security needs that must be handled with the highest level of compassion and professionalism. So here are a few benefits of working with us for your retirement community’s security needs.
Your staff likely does not have time to monitor all areas of your community for suspicious activity, which is why partnering with a local security company is a great way to keep your residents safe. We will monitor entrances and parking lots for suspicious activity and direct visitors to the front office to ensure they are signed in. Having on-site security also guarantees a quick response in case of an emergency.
Retirement communities typically have large quantities of prescription medications and valuable medical equipment, such as oxygen concentrators, not to mention resident records and personal belongings. These factors can make your community a target for thieves. However, we can work with you to prevent and respond to theft by patrolling sensitive areas, watching for suspicious activity, and launching an immediate emergency response if theft occurs.
Our team at Pikes Peak Security stays up-to-date on first aid and CPR certifications, so we are ready to assist in a medical emergency. We are also trained in de-escalation techniques to help if a resident or guest becomes upset. In addition, we are happy to lend a hand with mobility issues or offer directions to guests and residents. These are just a few ways that we can assist your staff.
