Education, training and professional development opportunities, advocacy for the SC assisted living industry with legislators and regulators, and the opportunity to network with other assisted living providers
Given the high risk of the resident population served (older adults often with underlying chronic medical conditions), nursing home and residential care populations are at the highest risk of being affected by COVID-19. This is an extremely stressful time for residents, their loved ones, and staff members. Health care workers in long term care are putting their lives on the line every day for their residents. Meanwhile, long term care providers continue to seek the resources that will help them battle this virus, including personal protective equipment. We must all do our part to protect seniors and support the caring staff working round the clock to protect them.
