The current skilled nursing service environment is changing for a number of reasons.
Join us as we explore how the rising cost of compliance in skilled nursing facilities is negatively impacting the resources for care of our elders and why some skilled nursing facilities are transitioning care to assisted living and private homes. What are the drivers behind Attic Angel Community’s decision to transition to assisted living and the impact for their residents? Selected skilled nursing services are managed by the facility while other services are supplemented by a Medicare Certified Home Care Agency. How are these skilled nursing and therapy services are managed, supervised and evaluated for adherence to the previously federal oversight standards for both in-house and home care services. What options or other alternative sources are available for the high acuity patient in this community. In the broad aspect of full continuum of care communities, how are other communities addressing the changes?
The panel who will discuss all aspects of this changing environment includes John Sauer, President/CEO, LeadingAge Wisconsin, MaryAnn Drescher, President, Attic Angel Community; Keith VanLanduyt, Vice President of Marketing, Oakwood Foundation Executive Director; Tim Conroy, Executive Director, Capitol Lakes; and Kelsey Abel, Administrator, Recover Health.
