Keswick

Wise & Well Center

keswick-wise-wellFor more than 130 years Keswick has provided long-term care and other services to seniors.

Two years ago, the organization opened a new center on its Hampden campus that dramatically expanded those services.

The Wise & Well Center for Healthy Living was created to help older people living in the community age in their homes while staying physically healthy and socially engaged.

The center includes fitness classes, personal trainers, medication, art and cooking classes and more.

Developed in a partnership with Aperio Health, a Baltimore software company, the center also has a strong high-tech component. A health-care data platform collects and analyzes information on the people using Keswick’s services, including the traditional nursing home and the new center.

The system can generate reports on clinical outcomes, measuring health changes such as blood pressure and weight, and non-clinical outcomes, such as mental health and happiness.

Keswick also is using other high-tech tools, including telehealth, monitoring, a web-based portal for center members and apps to keep older adults engaged in health and wellness.

“When we opened the Wise & Well Center for Healthy Living in 2018, a big investment in technology went along with the community health expansion,” said Keswick CEO Carmel Roques.

“We are proud to be at the forefront in this space, creating software that benefits community health in Baltimore.”
