Three Ways To Overcome Regulatory Challenges In The Assisted Living Business

Author: Robin Avery | | Categories: Elder Care , Housekeeping , Senior Care


Regulatory challenges can be daunting in any industry as there are enormous ramifications for failing to follow guidelines promptly. The assisted living business is no different, as the authorities set hundreds of regulatory demands to safeguard vulnerable patients.

The surveys and inspections conducted by the Department of Health and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) ensure assisted living operators follow best practices. What operators need to be aware of is that these are MINIMAL standards. Therefore, all owners of assisted living businesses should set the bar higher to enable their local communities to receive a quality service consistently.

At The Retreat At Church Ranch, we implement regulatory changes while going above and beyond to ensure our residents live out their golden years in comfort and dignity. Read on to learn how we achieve our objectives.

1. Enhance safety
The issue of safety looms mainly on the regulatory landscape, with building codes and fire codes providing much of the guidance and solutions in this area. Our team regularly carries out inspections of fire safety equipment and mechanical and electrical systems. We rely heavily on scheduled maintenance checklists that help in a proactive way to prevent unwanted incidents. 

2. Offer meticulous care
Providing continuous protective oversight for residents is a large umbrella. It includes good nutrition, a solid social program, and proactively keeping medical issues in check and under control. Our staff and management implement these tasks by meticulously paying attention to detail. To continuously improve operations and enhance client care, we also create a leadership culture and offer excellent training.

3. Build trust
Assisted living is a high-trust business that must be taken seriously by owners and operators. To build rapport with clients, we employ staff with character, integrity, and honesty. Our carers are also responsible for conducting services with the highest level of respect for residents.
