A Better Continuum Means Better Care

As healthcare providers, our paramount goal is always the health of our patients. With our population ages increasing in the United States and around the world, that means developing an ever-expanding range of services and new ways to deliver them to meet needs not even envisioned just a few years ago.

Today, we're seeing more age-related diseases, including many forms of dementia. Increasing life expectancies have produced new needs and have made us change the way we think about senior care. The results? More partnerships with acute care hospitals, which increase the value of the continuum of care, especially benefitting patients, physicians and hospitals themselves.

"Lifestyle concept" senior care campus opens in Tennessee

Posted 05/12/2015
May 12, 2015 as appeared in HealthCare Facilities Today.

A new 'lifestyle concept' senior care campus in Gallatin, Tenn., was designed to accommodate people as life stages take them from assisted living to other, more specialized living facilities, according to an article on the Tennessean website.

NHC Place, Sumner, with its 172 beds. There are 90 beds in the skilled nursing wing. Of the 82 assisted living beds, 22 are for assisted living. The others are for seniors who are independent but want, or need, extra support and smaller living accommodations, the article said.

The entrance to the multi-wing facility is like a hotel with high ceilings and plush furnishings. There is technology embedded in almost every corner of the facility.

The memory care wing is carpeted with a low-key design to reduce stimulants. If a resident pulls an alarm for help then staff immediately get a text message. The hallways are shorter than many healthcare facilities, to make residents more comfortable but to make sure nurses and caretakers have everything they need within easy access.
