When the Covid-19 pandemic began ramping up in the U.S. in early March, most senior living providers shuttered their dining rooms and ceased normal activities as a way to prevent the disease’s spread. In the months since, many have maintained those strict precautions as a way to protect their residents, given the disease’s ability to spread asymptomatically. Unlike their more traditional big-box senior living counterparts, some providers which focus on small-house settings have not had to disrupt their residents’ lives quite as much when implementing infection control measures. And, there is even anecdotal evidence to suggest that these communities are better equipped than larger congregate settings to prevent the disease’s spread.
While there are no guarantees in life, there is compelling evidence that the smaller Personal Care Home approach Neuro Diverse Living is taking will be much more capable of protecting its residents than typically seen in larger congregate care facilities. And the smaller, less congregate nature of our personal care homes is just one piece of the puzzle. The universal worker concept means our homes will have fewer workers coming and going, and caregivers are able to develop much closer relationships with residents, giving them an edge in detecting behavior that’s out of the ordinary.
