As staff or management at an assisted living community, your goals include helping residents maintain optimal health and quality of life. The more stable they are, the longer they can stay appropriate for your community.
In the course of events, your residents come to need more assistance. Attending medical appointments, advocating in the emergency room, or coordinating care after a hospitalization are not services you can provide. But they are services your residents need—services that can make the difference between staying in your community or needing to move to a higher level of care.
As a care manager we can help you by:
- Finding the right match to encourage happy placement the first time.
- Assisting with the transition, reducing turnover for you.
- Stabilizing chronic and serious conditions to support greater independence and well-being.
- Prolonging the time that the resident can stay in an assisted living context.
- Providing support when family members live far away.
- Taking your residents to the doctor any time they need to go.
- Being on call for emergency issues.
- Mediating family problems.
