Entrusting the care of a senior loved one to someone else isn’t easy, especially during the early days of an older family member’s transition to a senior living community. At Elmcroft Senior Living communities, we understand that.
Our commitment to providing quality care is something we take very seriously. We work hard to ensure residents live their best quality of life and to give families peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in good hands.
It begins with hiring a team of compassionate caregivers and training them to recognize and meet each resident’s individual needs.
Each member of our compassionate care staff undergoes a thoughtful and thorough training program. We help team members expand their existing skills and teach them how to use our signature programs to allow each resident to live their best life.
You will find the following traits in our team members:
- Kindness and empathy
- Desire to serve older adults
- Willingness to listen and offer support
- Good communication skills
- Calm, reassuring manner
Caregiver Staffing in Senior Living Communities
Families often ask how many caregivers per resident they should expect to see at a senior living community. While the requirements for assisted living staffing ratios vary by state, at Elmcroft Senior Living communities we staff according to acuity.
This means if we have a greater number of residents with higher needs, our caregiver staffing ratios will increase. Sometimes that increase is temporary to accommodate short-term fluctuations in residents’ health, such as several residents returning to assisted living after a hospital stay for a planned surgery.
