LCS Announces Disaster and Crisis Support Team

Emergency Response Team will provide volunteers that are trained, knowledgeable, and situation-ready to support communities managed by Life Care Services during a time of crisis.

DES MOINES, Iowa. October 13, 2021 — Senior living communities experiencing a natural disaster, or other unforeseen crisis will benefit from aid provided from a newly formed Emergency Response Team. The latest offering from EverSafe 360°, An LCS Signature Experience, provides real-time assistance in a time of need for senior living communities managed by Life Care Services, An LCS Company.

“With EverSafe 360°, LCS is committed to raising the bar in overall safety for residents and employees,” says Rick Exline, executive vice president/senior managing director of Life Plan Communities. “Our scale and national presence allow LCS the unique opportunity to provide just-in-time resources to communities in need. Our Emergency Response Team is the latest way we are providing peace of mind to residents, families, and employees during a time of crisis, and we could not be prouder of the team.”

Employees from the LCS corporate office and its managed communities volunteer their time to provide situation-ready support for communities experiencing an emergency or crisis. The team allocates resources to deliver real-time assistance, whether remotely or onsite. Their primary focus is backup staff relief, logistical aid, and situational leadership to support residents and staff during an emergency such as a hurricane, tornado, blizzard, forest fire, or flood.

The innovative program will also provide remote services, such as arranging travel and lodging for evacuations, staffing a crisis hotline, procuring necessary equipment, and performing resident check-ins.
