The acquisition further accelerates Spectrio’s user engagement capabilities, adding a layer of technology that allows the audience to transition from passive viewers to active users.
The LifeShare Technologies communication platforms connect families, residents, and staff at senior living communities.

With the integrated LifeShare mobile app, families of residents can receive notifications for community activities, events, and daily menus. Families are also able to view and share photos and videos and update their loved one’s calendar with appointments and reminders, providing peace of mind.
“Staying connected socially with your family and your community is a major factor in quality of life and engagement, not just for people in the senior living environment but for anyone,” said John Moore, LifeShare Technologies Founder and CEO. “We are excited to join Spectrio to take our vertical-focused platform for the senior living industry, and find innovative ways to share it with clients across other verticals and in different settings.”
