    F-Tag Friday: F800

    Welcome to F-Tag Friday, our new semi-regular segment on Cosmic Soup! On any given Friday of our closing, 3rdPlus VP of Health Services Randi Saeter will break down the often confusing Code of Federal Regulations for Long Term Care into bite-sized, digestible morsels with the goal of helping senior living communities provide the best care possible and avoid getting fines, citations and additional regulation and monitoring placed on their already challenging operations.


    And because we're so passionate about food, health and wellness, we will be initially focusing on the specific codes (F-tags) that cover the Food and Nutrition Services regulatory group. In our first episode, we cover F800: Provided Diet Meets Needs of Each Resident.

    Why the World Needs 3rdPlus

    Why the World Needs 3rdPlus

    It’s been a busy and productive year for us here at 3rdThird Marketing, and we wanted to take this opportunity to share some exciting news and give you a sneak peek of what we’ve been working on behind the scenes for quite some time.  As many of you know, the company has branched out to provide additional services in the form of Culinary Coach and Community Coach. We have now added one more business unit to the fold: SparksPlus. And with such expansion came the need to develop a concept that could combine branding, marketing, culinary, coaching, and life enrichment services all under one umbrella. So, in keeping with our commitment to make aging better by offering holistic, inspirational and life-enriching services for today’s modern elder, we are proud to announce that at the 2021 Leading Age Annual Meeting + Expo, we are officially launching 3rdPlus, a new umbrella brand that combines and empowers all our services under one name.


    Joining us on the show today to discuss the development and unveiling of  3rdPlus is founder and principal Cynthia Thurlow Cruver. We’re also joined by  3rdPlus Creative Director Derek Dujardin who discusses the creative process as well as Dr. Kelly Tremblay, a neuroscientist and audiologist who specializes in aging and serves as a consultant to 3rdPlus by contributing to its education and science missions.

    Sell the Future: Blue Sky Selling with Don Warfield

    Sell the Future: Blue Sky Selling with Don Warfield

    Have you been dreaming about expanding your community or even just upgrading an area of your campus? Do you need the revenue and the financing to  make it happen, but aren't sure where the funds will come from? Then we have three words for you: Blue Sky Selling. And while this concept may seem daunting for some, it doesn't have to be. There are predictable, reliable and formulaic techniques that have a track record of proven results when applied correctly. 


    Joining us today to discuss this concept is Community Coach VP of Sales and Marketing Don Warfield, who is an outspoken advocate for Blue Sky utilization and an expert in the field. Also joining us is 3rdPlus founder Cynthia Thurlow, who provides some additional insight to the advantages of Blue Sky Selling and what it means to "Sell the Future." Together, Don and Cynthia outline the steps necessary to launch a successful Blue Sky Campaign in a fun, casual, and informative fashion.

    Contracted Dining Vs. Self-Operation - Introducing Culinary VP Scott Daniels

    Contracted Dining Vs. Self-Operation - Introducing Culinary VP Scott Daniels

     


    "How's the food?"


    The quality of a community's dining operation is one of the largest factors that potential residents take into consideration when deciding where to spend their retirement years. The reality is that the success or failure of a food program can make or break a community. It's no wonder, then, that one of the hottest topics in the industry is whether to self-operate or go with a contracted dining company.


    Fortunately, we've got an expert in this area in our ranks. Joining us today is Scott Daniels,  Vice President of Culinary and Operations at Culinary Coach. Scott brings over 25 years of experience in contracted dining, and we took the opportunity to take a deep dive into  the subject. Join us as we explore the ins and outs of dining contracts, from a true insider's perspective of someone who spent over two decades in the trenches.  If you are thinking about how you can level-up your dining program and are exploring all options, this episode is for you!
