Today, the assisted living industry is thriving. In the United States alone, there are around 28,900 assisted living communities and over 811,000 Americans who call these facilities home. Research also shows that within the next several decades, the number of elderly Americans will increase dramatically due to the retirement of many people in the Baby Boomer generation. Because assisted living facilities will continue to remain in high demand, it’s more exciting than ever to be a facility manager in the assisted living industry.
In today’s assisted living communities, facilities personnel do much more than repair assets and machinery. They also provide living environments that are safe, comfortable and engaging for senior citizens and people with disabilities. To help facility managers take control of their facilities, AkitaBox has created the 2019 Guide to the Maintenance and Management of Assisted Living Facilities, a free, comprehensive e-book that explores innovative ways to care for and maintain your buildings.
