The Changing Picture of Maintenance Work at Senior Care Facilities
In the 21st century, the nature of senior living — and thus, the facilities that must be developed to accompany new paradigms — is evolving. In the past, one of the greatest concerns expressed by seniors moving into such a facility was disconnect, or the sense of having to remove oneself from a vibrant, loving community to be placed in an insular, closed-off building that is more hospital-like than homey. These days, as explained by FacilitiesNet, the very shape and structure of new senior facilities is being crafted with the notion of integrating into existing communities, rather than separating from them. This requires innovative new architectural work, great planning, and a listening ear.
In any conversation with long-term care facility managers, the top concern is always financial pressure. This is followed by emergency systems requirements and other compliance issues as well as security concerns. Facility managers are under constant pressure to keep costs down, but yet are expected to maintain the facility and patient safety as well as meet any new regulations that may come along.

So how can you reduce costs to stay competitive while not compromising patient care?
