Costs are rising for Senior Care operators and investors. The ability of residents and families to pay for Assisted Living is falling. Covid-19 has created a new landscape of slower move ins and falling occupancy. This shrinking gap between rising costs and falling revenues has created a perfect storm for Assisted Living facilities, who receive little to no help from government sources. Senior Living companies are issuing alerts and warnings of ebbing occupancy, falling profits, increasing losses and potential bankruptcies. As an operator, investor or a management company, it becomes part of your fiduciary duty to perform due diligence to find a way out of this financial morass.
In the face of such adversity, the clear and obvious answer for Senior Care facilities is to reduce costs and increase efficiency. To be able to spend less and achieve more with it. This is the only available path to survive, and even thrive, in these challenging times.
Even as the Covid Crisis recedes, it’s going to leave behind a long term landscape of increased preventive testing, potentially higher staffing costs for the facilities, all while significantly impairing the ability of residents and families to pay for services due to shrinking nest eggs, lost jobs and falling incomes.
