Nowadays everything is available whenever we want it and we have the technology to access anything and everything 24/7. This is also true with the way you will start receiving information with the My Erickson App. Let’s get started…
Say you’re having a guest over for dinner tonight but you’re unsure of how many meals you have left. You get dressed and head down to the dining room to have them look your last name up and give you your count. You soon learn you only have one meal left and you cannot have your friend over for dinner anymore….ouch. BUT WAIT. What if you could walk over to your computer, phone, or iPad and find out without having to step foot out of your apartment?! SURPRISE–you CAN!
The My Erickson App creates a unique username and password for each resident who has a device enabling them to access the internet. Once logged in, you are able to access how many meals you have at any given time, a local directory, all the dining menus, and so much more!
Below are some screenshots of what the app looks like after you have an account

In fact, do you sometimes get tired of sitting through our TV Scroll if you are in need of a specific slide? Say goodbye to your old ways! With My Erickson you able able to view our TV Scroll at your own pace, scrolling and sifting through our slides until you come across the one you are looking for. Pretty convenient, right?
So now you’re probably saying, “Lauren, this sounds amazing, how do I get it?” Do not fret, we have you covered.
Step 1: Call the TV Studio to schedule an appointment
There will be two activation sessions for My Erickson:
Thursday, January 11th from 1PM to 4PM or
Friday, January 26th from 1PM to 4PM
Appointments take approximately 10-15 minutes.
Step 2: Know your email address and your password to access that email address
In order to access your account on My Erickson you will need an email address. Please note that if you are a couple, you will EACH need an account. You cannot share an email address because each resident needs their individual account.
Make sure you also tune to Channel 973 on January 4th to find out more about this new application coming to Oak Crest. The program will also be available the following day at oakcresttv.com.
