"We made mistakes that I wasn’t sure we or our business would make it through, and we learned how to operate from the ground up. "
That's why I started Assisted Living Management Solutions. I'm so excited to help other Assisted Living Business owners provide the best possible care for their clients AND have a business (and a life) that doesn't negatively impact quality of life for anyone involved!
Through brutal trial and error,
I figured out the puzzle.
Providing the best, safe, most compassionate care for your clients,
Maintaining relationships with clients' families and loved ones,
Hiring, training, and managing staff,
Complying with vague, confusing, and ever-changing regulations...
As an Owner and/or Assisted Living Manager of a Residential Assisted Living Business and/or facility, you've got a lot on your plate.
That's why I started Assisted Living Management Solutions (ALMS)!
I worked in the business development and marketing field for one of the world’s leading health institutions for over 12 years. While there, I gained experience in business strategy, process improvement, project management, sales, marketing, retention, health insurance, and public health. I know, I know. The kitchen sink too!
All the day-to-day stresses ...
And competing priorities make you feel like you're losing your sanity and barely holding on in your business.
Work-life balance, dependable staff, satisfied residents, and fantastic profits CAN go hand-in-hand.
Empowering people around us with the right tools, so they can lift up their family, and that ultimately lifts up their community, and then society
MO & JAMES HOPKINS
My husband and his family had experience in the direct care and assisted living industries as their primary careers and were gearing to start a new assisted living facility. I would come home and vent about what was going on at my job. No matter how hard or long I worked, my paycheck was the same. What the company was asking me to give, they could not afford.
I resigned. Bam, we used our skills to start our assisted living business.
After earning my ALM certification, I had a binder full of certificates and a brain full of regulations. With my, my husband's, and his family's career experience, we STILL weren’t entirely prepared for the good, bad or ugly! We were making a $7,000 monthly profit, but I was exhausted and could not plan anything because we were consistently putting out fires.
I couldn't find any comprehensive or detailed resources (people or products) to tell me how to handle situations that I never had to in the corporate world, so I did research and developed policies, procedures, templates, workflows, and training programs, in addition to what was required to make OUR BUSINESS work for OUR LIFE.
Proactively implementing the right processes and tools to handle reactive business issues allowed our team to focus on what mattered most- our residents- which increased our overall revenue by more than four times.
Because I’m the no-bullshit type (sugarcoating requires too much mental energy), I’m going to share REAL SOLUTIONS to REAL PROBLEMS you face owning an ALB; tried and tested by me and mine.
Bright Solutions to get you Profitable Results.
