For the past several years, Riderwood and Erickson have been working to create technology that will enhance our communication and interaction with each other. We are excited to announce that this new tool, MyErickson, is now available to ALL residents! This technology makes our information more current, and available whenever and wherever you want. We feel that many residents will benefit from being able to use this.
MyErickson is an integrated electronic communication platform that provides important information. It is available as an app for any tablet or as a website on laptop and desktop computers. Available within this resource are both resident and staff directories, a listing of all events for the upcoming 45 days, links to RWTV shows and the weekly TV guide, community photographs, and so much more. Your meal plan balance, dining menus for each restaurant, and MyNutrition are all available to help you stay informed about your dining options. You will also find useful community information such as shuttle bus schedules, the Resident Handbook, and information about the RAC members.
One resident who is already using the app commented, “This is a WONDERFUL resource. The ability to easily search material is so useful. I get my meal of the day as a carryout… and now I can easily check the menu at home.”
My Erickson is a fantastic tool but you must have an account to use it to its fullest capabilities. It is password protected to ensure material such as the resident directory, and information especially for our residents, are kept secure.
To learn more about MyErickson and to get an account set-up, please join us at an open house to register new users on Wednesday, March 22 from 10:00am to 3:00pm in Montgomery Station’s Maryland Hall. You can stop by anytime between these hours to register and activate your account. Please bring your tablet or laptop with you. You will also need to be able to log in to your personal email account to complete the activation. We will have extra laptops if you do not have one but you will need to know your email login info to complete the activation. Demonstrations will take place on the hour and will be about 20 minutes long. If you are not able to make it on March 22, please contact your Community Resources Coordinator and they will set-up an appointment to activate your MyErickson account.
