How WelcomeHome Helps Senior Communities Move Prospects in Sooner and Extend Length of Stay
Updated: Nov 2
As the senior living industry grows, operators continue to face the challenge of attracting the right prospects and retaining residents. In today’s competitive market, operators stay ahead by implementing innovative solutions that help generate move ins sooner and extend the length of stay for as long as possible, which ultimately is a win-win for everyone involved.
WelcomeHome Software helps operators overcome this challenge by providing a powerful tool that can help streamline the sales processes, improve occupancy rates, help move-in prospects sooner, and extend the length of time a resident is in a community.
From the prospect’s standpoint, delaying the process could mean a bigger chance for the decline in health and also additional stress on loved ones and family. According to recent studies, the average time for someone to move into a senior living community is six to nine months. That’s a long time to wait if the person’s health is in a state of rapid deterioration. Research has shown that the longer a senior delays moving into a community, the more likely they are to experience a decline in cognitive and physical abilities. With dementia, the decline can be incredibly rapid, so engaging people when they first start looking for a senior living community is even more important.
From the perspective of the community, having a resident with you longer is culturally, clinically and fiscally beneficial. Creating a robust community that aids in the prevention of isolation is important to the vitality of all people. When health and wellness resources are provided earlier, the resident is better abled mentally and physically, again strengthening the individual and community. With earlier intervention, there is an opportunity to improve quality of life and potentially extend life, especially when considering the perils of living at home, such as falls and wandering.
