Senior Care Centers Require Close Scrutiny

Aug 30th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Quality conditions and service vary significantly among Senior Care Centers. (Here we refer to Assisted Care, Memory Care, Nursing Homes, Skilled Nursing facilities, etc.) Usually the satisfaction of the resident is directly associated with the quality and effectiveness of that care. And that is usually attached to the overall costs charged back to the resident.

Quality care, however, even in those top of the line centers cannot always be presumed. Most such centers, not all, are profit making. This, as in any enterprise, drives the cost to service ratio. In smaller communities, even mediocre care can be expensive. While some residents enjoy both subsidized care and/or long term care insurance, the costs usually are such that additional resources must be called upon.
