Seniors today have quite a few senior living options to pick from. That is the good and the bad news. What separates a great nursing home, assisted living facility or rehab center from a mediocre one? At CareValidate we believe that the answer to this multidimensional question should start with senior safety and security.
If you have just started to research this topic, you will quickly discover the harsh reality that there is an acute caregiver shortage in senior living. Most, if not all, senior living facilities lose a large percentage of their caregivers every year. Unfortunately this pervasive phenomenon creates gaps in care for seniors which can quickly result in adverse events like falls and decubitis ulcers - if not proactively managed. Since the ratio of individuals in the caregiving age group to those over 65 is constantly decreasing all indicators point to the worsening of caregiver shortages in the years to come.
So what can you do to pick a great facility with the special focus on senior safety? The short answer is to ask the right questions using CareValidate’s Senior Living Safety and Security Checklist.
