Keep Sales Moving Forward
By using your upcoming calendar to match the interests of individuals who are considering moving into your facility, you keep the sale moving forward. StoriiCare provides a progressive, modern way to showcase your activities program on and offline to prospective residents and their families.
How to do this:
Let prospective residents and their families know what is going on in your facility by wow-ing them with your Activities program. Whether you display the Activity Calendar on a TV in your lobby, have it printed off in your office, available on your website, or sent in an email, there are many ways to show off your well-planned program!
Be sure to put photos in your Public Calendar album! These photos will appear on your digital calendar display. A wonderful way to evidence resident engagement! This way, visitors to your facility can see how happy and engaged your residents are living there.
Utilize Care Plans & Activity Analytics for Evidencing Resident Engagement
When you engage with residents based on their current needs and preferences, they are more likely to stay in your facility longer. This level of patient-centered care has been shown to improve quality of life. Higher quality of life is associated with lower costs of care.
How to do this:
Update a resident's 'This is Me' section to include up-to-date information on interests, hobbies, preferences, etc.
In a resident's Overview section, you'll find an auto-generated list of their Preferred Activities. The items you see will be based on which activities they've been recorded as participating in the most.
Analyze the data StoriiCare automatically tracks for you! In Activity Analytics, you can filter by service user to see an in-depth look at their participation journey. Alternatively, you can view site-wide statistics to get an idea of what changes you might want to make to your offerings.
