C. Do Life Plan Communities Need a Skilled Nursing Component?

Many life plan communities are looking for a different way to address the long-term care needs of their residents. Some organizations are reducing or eliminating their skilled care component or building new communities without skilled nursing. Others are re-building their long-term care products to be more consumer-friendly. This session will look closely at both options. Presenters will explore whether skilled nursing care is an essential part of a continuum in life plan communities, the steps involved in deciding whether to strengthen or dismantle a skilled nursing setting, and the financial implications of that decision. Learn about alternatives to including skilled care in the continuum and how to determine what your community needs.
