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.

Get three strategies proven to increase employee satisfaction.

Staffing is at a crisis point across senior care. Employee turnover is as high as 70%. But there are steps you can take to develop a more satisfied team that delivers more effective care, potentially saving you $500,000 or more. Our guide outlines three strategies to employ to support educated, empowered employees that remain on the job, doing great work they feel good about.

Why better rest for residents means better occupancy for communities

Jan 26, 2023
Disruptive nighttime events are one of the main reasons families turn to senior living. And poor sleep quality can begin a cycle of health deterioration, increasing a resident’s fall risk and furthering cognitive decline. So, how can you assure families that you’ll help their loved ones get restful sleep—and reduce their risks—when they move into your communities? It starts with insights into and understanding of why sleep is being disrupted, as well as a clearer picture of resident risk.

Join our free webinar on January 26th for an in-depth discussion of the etiology of sleep disturbances, an analysis of exclusive data around falls and risk overnight, and an exploration of proven strategies that support better sleep—all empowering you to put families at ease about their loved ones’ quality of rest and level of risk when considering a move into your communities.

Residents are most vulnerable overnight. Here’s how to best support them.

Oct 26, 2022
In senior living communities, the overnight hours are the most vulnerable for residents. Fall risk peaks between 6 – 9 pm and again from 3 – 6 am. Staffing is reduced overnight. And as the sun goes down, residents living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia experience sundowning, the increased restlessness, anxiety, and disorientation that can increase fall risk—and which becomes more intense as the diseases progress. In October’s National Fall Huddle, we’ll evaluate the incidence of falls during the evening hours and what triggers and subsequent behaviors are present prior to these fall events. We’ll also review how environmental factors contribute and we’ll provide strategies for mitigating sundowning behaviors, increasing resident safety and reducing the risk of falls. Additionally, we’ll examine how technology can further help during these most vulnerable hours, supporting staff so they can provide more effective and person-centered care. As always, we’ll review successful case studies, and our panel of experts will take your questions.

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.
