Why the elderly love their digital concierge


Before Bringme:

  • Residents had to stay at home, particularly for parcels or deliveries
  • Sick residents couldn’t open the door remotely
  • Residents could not see which visitor or courier was at the door
  • Couriers often had to come back twice for a delivery

After Bringme:

  • Couriers make contact-free deliveries in the Bringme Box, whether the recipient is at home or not
  • People in need of care can open the door remotely for nurses or family
  • Residents never have to make any unnecessary trips to the post box again
  • Ironed clothes, dry-cleaning, and groceries are also delivered without the residents’ intervention

The story

Leading architect Stéphane Beel had a Bringme digital concierge installed for the active seniors living at the Twist and De Ark assisted living residences in the well-known ‘Tweewaters’ district on the Vaartkom in Leuven. “That doesn’t make any sense,” you might think now. Do ‘digital’ and ‘seniors’ really go together? Isn’t such a technological tour de force too complex for these residents? We went to ask them and let them answer for themselves in the resultant video. You’ll notice that one word came up all the time: ‘easy’.

The residents at De Ark assisted living residences have a digital concierge.
