A Message From Our Founder, Charles Mann

In 1988, my late father built his first Assisted Living community in Atlanta, Georgia. As the son of a senior housing developer and ex-home health/hospice/home care agency owner, I was a participant in dinner table conversations that covered all things “senior.” One of the consistent topics was the safety and security of the residents living in his communities. Safety, security, and risk mitigation were non-negotiables for my father then and remain that way to this day.

In 2011, I made the move back into the family business, where I served as the Executive Director in our flagship Assisted Living community in Atlanta, GA. It was my time as an Executive Director where the Accushield idea spawned. In 2013, I left the family business and founded Accushield, a user-friendly sign-in and health-screening kiosk for Senior Living Communities. Accushield’s tablet-based kiosk replaces the manual paper logbooks with a streamlined sign-in and health screening process for all visitors, staff, third-party caregivers, and residents who enter and exit the building.

Over the last nine years, our goal has remained the same – to help Senior Living operators create a safer environment by always knowing who is in the community.

Whether you are a community owner, a caregiver, vendor, or a family member, we hope that you will reach out to us to explore how the Accushield system can benefit you and the residents you serve. All of us at Accushield look forward to working with you to create the safest possible environment for the wonderful seniors who grace our lives.
