Maria Nadelstumph, Vice President of Organizational Development and Program Excellence, is featured in McKnight’s Senior Living where she elaborates on integrated care within senior living and the lessons we’ve learned here at Brandywine Living.
With different acuity levels among our residents, many senior living companies have formed partnerships with outside companies who perform services such as home health, therapy and other offerings.
At Brandywine Living we are partnered with four hospitals (St. Barnabas Medical Center, Virtua, Main Line Health & Valley Hospital) and Bayada, a home health care company. Our partnerships are important because it gives our residents the opportunity to receive the best quality care from medical institutions.
The five lessons on integrated care that Maria elaborates on are:
Find the right partner
Educate that assisted living is “home”
Define the scope of services
Market the partnership
Track quality outcomes
