Sengistix

Dungarvin Nevada uses Sengistix in a number of locations. Sengistix utilizes a wide variety of coordinated sensors to provide a “complete package” of custom monitoring tailored to meet unique individual needs. This automated sensing provides caregivers the ability to improve safety, enhance the quality of life, and increase options for greater independence for all individuals requiring support. The person receiving supports has greater independence because paid staff is only called to the home when needed. For more information Sengistix, please visit our Partners.

We understand that each person is unique and no support model meets the needs of everyone. If you are interested in any of the listed services from Dungarvin, or need more information about current openings or future placements, please contact us!
