Outreach into the community

  1. 0
    I am new to screening for a LTC facility and I have been asked to think of some outreach programs to assisted living facilities and etc. I'm drawing a blank. DO you have any ideas to help with this project that has worked for you? Thanks for your help.

    I'm thinking the whole point of outreach is to get more customers to use your facility for their short and long term needs. I've had great success in the past with free health screenings...offer a once or twice a month blood pressure clinic. Have cards made with your facility's name and keep track of their BP for them. We've had cholesterol screenings, lectures on topics of interest to older people...FREE is good....FOOD is good.

    Talk with your therapy department too. They might be able to do some screenings or saftey awareness things too.

    My Administrator and I use to go the local Senior Center weekly and also we used to help deliver the meals on wheels. We also would do the blood pressure screenings.
