    Business Plans For Opening An Assisted Living Home

    The number one reason to have a business plan is for you, so that you have clarity of vision of who you are, what you're doing and where you're going. The second reason for a business plan is to help raise capital. No private investor or a lender is going to give you the money you need without a business plan.

    You also need to consider the 5 Ps in your business plan. They are People, Position, Product, Projection, and Plan. We go over all of these individually in more detail in our Blog.

    Transforming Your Home Into Senior Housing

    Transforming Your Home Into Senior Housing

    You can turn your home into senior housing anywhere from independent living up to Assisted Living. Independent living is senior safe. I mean grab bars, smoke detectors, wider doors, trip hazards removed. That home itself maybe has four bedrooms.

    Assisted Living means somebody is there to take care of them. We provide a service for them, and you need to get it ready because Assisted Living means there's going to be caregivers that there.

    You Don’t Have To Be The Caretaker Yourself

    You Don’t Have To Be The Caretaker Yourself

    As our family ages they start to need more. Their independence is gone and they don’t want to admit that they may not be capable emotionally or physically.

    The reality may be we just aren't designed for that or have the time and ability to do so.

    The idea of memory care and understanding how to handle that is just as important as the physical contact.

    You know there's so much to learn, but the reality is we're all going to have to.

    Assisted Living Explained

    Assisted Living Explained

    A long time ago Assisted Living meant a big institution. Today it is completely different. When you think about living at an Assisted Living home, it has all of the comforts of home and there's other people in that home.

    Assisted Living is for when somebody has an event, they move into Assisted Living after that event where they need additional help or monitoring.

    Let's face it, we're all going to pass away. The question is when, not if.

    Marketing Offline Helps Build Personal Relationships

    Marketing Offline Helps Build Personal Relationships

    Offline Marketing is having brochure, flyers and business cards. The brochures should match your website and your online presence. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

    There are professional referral sources, placement agents that refer seniors to homes, attorneys that specialize in working with seniors, insurance agents that work with long-term care insurance,

    Hospitals and doctors offices are your two other primary sources for referrals.

    Hospice - Who Really Pays For It?

    Hospice - Who Really Pays For It?

    Hospice provides benefits for people at end of life care.The money that pays for it is provided through the government, which comes from our tax dollars.

    We're all getting closer to the end of life every day. But somebody who is really truly closer to end of life now could be on hospice for years.

    Assisted Living works hand in hand with hospice providers. They give us referrals and we give them referrals. One of the things I truly appreciate about hospice is their heart's in the right place.
