The Senior Care Industry – Things I Know and Things I Don’t Know

Things I don’t know:

• What the senior care industry will look like in the years to come.

• What the future holds for the virus forecast.

• Why people wear masks that don’t cover their nose.

Things I do know:

• Seniors will continue to need safe long term care options.

• We have to keep residents safe AND businesses need to be financially stable.

• The industry has responded positively to the pandemic in most communities.

• We have to combat reports from news outlets that the long-term care space is unsafe for seniors. 

• Communities need to be transparent with reporting on the outbreak.

• We need quick, non-evasive, widespread testing or communities will be vectors for corona transmission.

• Facilities that care for seniors must continue to wear PPE and practice proper protocols well into the future.

• Step by step we will figure this out.

• CarePatrol is ready, willing and able to help families find the communities that offer the safest senior living options.
