Communicating with Medical Providers


As the health care landscape changes, understanding what Assisted Living can and cannot do has become paramount.

Delivering the Assisted Living Message

Getting in contact with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other health care providers is a great way to introduce Assisted Living as a potential partner in care. The key to communicating with health care providers is to deliver a clear, concise, and consistent message about the philosophy behind this model of care and how Assisted Living can meet a range of needs. CALA has collected tools and resources to help you deliver this message.
