WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

“We contracted with Salus to support our residents at Grand Villa of St. Petersburg with fall mitigations and preventative means to decrease the number of incidents they experienced. Many residents seek assisted living support due to falls at home. However, many don’t do anything to help the resident in their safety after they move in.

When Salus took over the contract, industry average falls in Assisted Living Centers averaged 14%. This campus was surpassing those statistics consistently, and move-outs were abundant. We did a quality assurance review to discover the root cause. In most situations, we were moving people in, but not introducing any support with therapy until there was a fall or we noticed a resident walking differently.

From the start, we began having a Salus professional evaluate residents at the time of move-in. Salus also started addressing staff during our morning meetings about resident falls and move-ins, resolving these issues more quickly. The Salus team also assisted in doing safety checks in residents’ apartments after the movers left to identify hazards before an incident could even occur.

After all the systems were in place, the falls on this campus were below the industry average. During critical months with a high number of move-ins, falls decreased below 5% across the company! Our occupancy rate has stayed above 95% because our residents are evaluated quicker and other services were put in place to address falls at home and on our campus. Now we have a waiting list for our memory care program and one-bedroom apartments; we are so excited to begin 2020 with a “Wait List” status.

Bringing Salus on was an excellent strategy for the success of our Grand Villa location, and it has provided quality services for our residents while we support them through their aging process.”
