Setting Guidelines For Senior Living Communities

Senior Living IQ promotes the high-level quality care and service residents can expect in senior living communities.

Putting Resident Care and Safety First

Senior living providers serve a vulnerable population that can be perceived to be at risk. The opportunity to care for this population is taken very seriously by industry professionals. Investing in quality of care and quality of life is one of our highest priorities.

Senior Living providers invest in quality every day. They invest in the quality of life for their residents. They invest in training and the education of team members. They invest in building trust with family members. The quest for quality is an ongoing investment. It involves continuous learning, collaboration by sharing best practices and ideas.

Our Campaign Strives To:

  • Create Awareness
  • Empower Action
  • Invest in Employees

Senior Living IQ is a multi-year initiative.

Phase I: Creating Awareness.
This phase will be an identification of high risk challenges in senior living and provide resources for improving quality through best practices. High risk challenges will include, but may not be limited to, resident safety, emergency preparedness, serving memory impaired residents, and medication management.

Phase 2: Empowering Action.
This phase will promulgate industry guidelines that provide a voluntary method of self-regulation to improve quality.

Phase 3: Investing in Employees.
This phase will include employee training and certification programs to provide the workforce with specialized skills.
