When transportation becomes an issue, assisted living facilities are often seen as a solution. The Choose Well team has put together some helpful reminders to improve the transportation experience for residents and staff.
March's Choose Well Times features Leo Espinosa's journey to becoming licensee and administration of Butterfly Gardens II. You'll find that on the first page of the issue. If you're looking for activities for your facility, this issue has suggestions for holiday-themed activities and lists not-for-profit organizations offering pet therapy happiness. Page 4 of this issue has an article on Resident Councils and what your responsibilities are for allowing your residents to assemble to talk over issues they have with your facility.
