Resident Focus: New Strategies to Promote Health and Happiness

Exclusive Member Report

Resident health and happiness are central to any senior care community’s operation. But maintaining that health and happiness can be challenging, particularly in light of the effects of the pandemic.

It’s essential to take a comprehensive approach to supporting residents. That means senior care communities need to focus on everything from encouraging socialization to monitoring cognitive health to evaluating physical health and more. Thankfully, advancements in technology mean senior care communities have more tools at their disposal than ever before. These tools can help not only with health and safety monitoring, but now technology can even play a role in resident social interaction and in forming the connections with family and other residents that are so important to emotional wellness.

We are pleased to highlight the following best practices that senior care communities can use to better promote health and happiness not only in residents, but to also support residents’ families. This attentive approach to resident wellness can boost the overall mood in a senior
care setting. It can also play an important role in building the facility’s reputation. But most importantly, putting extra time and effort into resident wellness can ensure that residents get the quality, personalized care they deserve.
