A. Should You Transition Away from Skilled Nursing Care?

The demand for skilled nursing home care has waned in recent years due to the improved health of older adults, reimbursement changes, and increases in care provided in non-skilled settings. This session will focus on three senior living communities that are transitioning from skilled nursing to alternate care models. Presenters will describe a renovation project that converted skilled nursing spaces to memory care, a campus expansion that closed an on-campus skilled nursing setting, and a ground-up life plan community development that offered comprehensive care without on-campus skilled nursing. Join colleagues to discuss how transitions in care delivery can impact financial performance and their implications for strategic planning, financial management, resident relations, and operations.
