Other Key Pieces of Information You Need To Know Before Deciding

State Care Violations
  • Every state has an enforcement organization that completes surprise inspections with assisted living communities. In their inspection they will address typical health code factors, cleanliness, and other processes & documentation. The most relevant part of their inspection involves the care provided to the residents, medication, access to water, and other key components that ensure quality care is being deliviered consistently. 
Leadership Stability
  • Regardless of the reputation of a community, which takes years to develop, the tenure of the leadership can impact the level and consistency of care provided by that community.  If there have been leadership changes at particular points in the community heirarchy that impact care, you're going to want to know about it. By itself, low tenure doesn't mean bad care will be provided, but it's a factor that can greatly impact it. 
Ownership Changes
  • Like leadership, changes in ownership can greatly impact the level of care provided. The change management program deployed by the acquiring company can and often does cause incumbant leadership and employees to become resistent to new processes and procedures. This fosters a bad work environment that is highly volatile, and that volatility can impact care.
