Referring a Patient to Assisted Living
As a healthcare provider, we know your patient’s health is your top priority. That’s why when an elderly individual’s health begins to decline from preventable factors, such as not eating enough, or falling more often around the house, it may be up to you to help introduce a healthier and safer living solution.
Whether you’re the family doctor conducting a routine checkup, or a nurse following up after a hospital stay, your assessment of an individual’s health and mentality is essential in recommending a suitable care path for their future.
When it may be time for an aging individual to consider assisted living options, your role as a healthcare provider can give them the assurance and understanding they need to make an informed decision.
Having the Conversation
We’re ready to partner with you and serve as a helpful resource for any questions you or your patient’s family may have. It’s possible you may be the one to first introduce the idea of an assisted living community, and we hope you can find the tools you need in our Having the Conversation section.
Choosing the Right Community
At Brookdale, you can expect us to be a trusted partner by listening and understanding your patient’s needs, discussing potential solutions and options, mutually determining the right thing to do and working with you to take action together.
