Wednesday, August 25th, 2021
Who says senior living can’t be innovative and cutting-edge? Morrison Living, the leading hospitality service provider, and partner Lenbrook, Atlanta’s premier senior living community, embraced the future with the introduction of their latest team member - “Lenny” the Robot. This high-tech robot has joined the restaurant staff at Lenbrook to assist in supporting servers during mealtimes.
“At Morrison Living, we are consistently showing we are innovative and progressive,” says Joe Gorman, Division President of Morrison Living. “This is another example illustrating how we are providing the latest technology, forward-thinking progress and even some extra fun for the residents.”
Morrison Living, the #1 hospitality service provider for senior living brought “Lenny” to Lenbrook to provide an even better customer experience for the residents. “Lenny” will be helping with drink service, bussing and food running. This will mean less running around and less heavy lifting for the servers.
“Lenny” can hold two 16-inch trays including a drink tray and one bus tub. He weighs in about 72 lbs. and has a battery life of 8-12 hours. He is easily charged through a wall charger and is controlled by an external tablet or his attached touchscreen. The response has been overwhelming for “Lenny” as he learns the ropes and is quickly becoming part of the family at Lenbrook.
“We wouldn’t dream of replacing our current servers with a robot but giving them the opportunity to spend more time with the residents and less time running to and from the kitchen benefits everyone,” says Felecia Sveda, Vice President Operations – Hospitality Services of Lenbrook. “We are providing a topnotch community for our seniors and adding Lenny to the staff not only shows commitment to the future, but also shows we are ready for the next big thing in technology.”
