Accelerate occupancy rate gains post-pandemic

The most recent studies show senior living occupancy rates are beginning to slowly climb back after falling 9.2% from their peak at the height of the pandemic. But how do operators bridge the occupancy gap and capitalize on the largest-ever aging population when families face lingering fears coupled with inflation rates at a 40-year high? We’ve outlined strategies to help address these fears head-on, highlight how you support residents’ well-being, and make your communities stand out, so you can keep the residents you have and gain new residents to then keep.

During the pandemic, falls in memory care were on the rise. But Eskaton cut a key fall rate in half during this time.

How did they do it? They had installed SafelyYou. So, while falls were on the rise in memory care communities across the nation, Eskaton communities were bucking the trend, reducing falls, ER visits resulting from falls, and risk of COVID-19 exposure. Download our case study for all the details.

Our National Fall Huddles cover all things fall prevention

So, what is the state of falls in 2022? In short, it’s a crisis.

Sep 22, 2022
For every step we take, someone aged 65 or older is falling. As the aging population grows, so will the number of falls. By 2030, there will be 72 million older adults—experiencing a combined 52 million falls every year. And the health system, senior living operators, adult children, and seniors are working in silos to try to solve this 51- billion-dollar-a-year problem, with costs extending beyond financial expense to include massive physical and emotional tolls, too. That’s why SafelyYou is unveiling data from our inaugural report, The State of Falls, a comprehensive study based on a survey of more than 400 executives and care providers across senior care and adults 42 and older. We assess approaches to fall management, impact of falls to communities, and how fall risk shapes the emotional—and financial—health and wellness of families. Join our special webinar on September 22, the first day of fall and Falls Prevention Awareness Day, as our panel of industry experts provides unique perspectives and commentary coupled with powerful insights and selective strategies to move beyond the status quo, and begin the work of bringing the health system, operators, adult children, and seniors together to break down silos and misconceptions around falls and build transformative change.

Know which transfer aid to use when. And how to use it most effectively.

Aug 17, 2022
Transfers are a common source of falls—even when supporting aids are in use. Which begs the question, are the right aids being used with the right residents, and in the right way? Join us for August’s National Fall Huddle, when special guest Kari Harbaugh, Senior Product Consultant at Direct Supply, helps lead the discussion of all things transfer aids, including which aid to use when, the different considerations for different types of aids, and the best practices for each. We’ll also discuss communication strategies for encouraging residents living with Alzheimer’s and dementia to participate more easily in transfers, reducing fall risk and increasing safety. And we’ll demonstrate how technology can help develop desired behavior more quickly—which is critical for memory care residents who have difficulty identifying safety hazards and learning to use new aids.

Accurately assess fall risk in residents with cognitive challenges. And apply what’s learned to personalized care plans.

Jul 20, 2022
Fall risk assessments are the first step in fall prevention for a resident—and they’re critical for developing the right care plan. But these assessments shouldn’t be conducted in the same way for all residents—they have to be adjusted at certain levels of care. In this National Fall Huddle, we outline the types of assessments that work for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and explain what sets them apart. Watch this webinar to learn how information gathered from these assessments can be used to shape personalized care plans. We discuss the appropriate frequency of fall risk assessments, explore their purpose, and identify the skills needed to conduct them comprehensively. And we examine how innovation can be used in conjunction with assessments to identify a fall’s root cause and any fall patterns.
