Senior Care
Placing a loved one into an assisted living facility can be an incredibly trying and emotional experience. It’s an enormous decision that does not come lightly. Naturally, families are concerned with the quality of care that the seniors in their lives will be receiving, and are reluctant to trust institutional senior care. According to Dr. Stephen Morris, an academic emergency medicine and public health specialist, small-scale senior care facilities are becoming viable options for families, and providing a much needed peace of mind. Small-scale senior care facilities are operated and supervised by a team of nurses, health care directors, and resident managers who ensure coordination of care, adequate staffing, finance management, compliance, marketing, and collaboration with outside health organizations and providers. “It’s exactly the type of intimate care that our elders deserve,” says Dr. Morris who’s been featured in the NY Times, Associated Press, NPR and 60 Minutes.
