Senior Living Communities Benefit from Medical Expertise
EverSafe 360° Medical Advisory Board advises communities managed by Life Care Services
DES MOINES, Iowa. March 25, 2021 — Senior living communities will benefit from the expertise of the EverSafe 360° Medical Advisory Board. Seven medical, academic, and health care professionals will advise on the latest health and wellness technologies, innovations, and practices for senior living communities managed by Life Care Services.
“The EverSafe 360° Medical Advisory Board includes physicians and scientists who specialize in epidemiology, mental health, infectious diseases and indoor air quality,” says Rick Exline, executive vice president/senior managing director of Life Plan Communities. “These experts will provide real-time guidance to help ensure the safety and security of our residents and employees.” The advisory board will evaluate research and recommend health care delivery models for senior living care levels.
The COVID-19 pandemic identified an industry need for solutions that enhance the senior living experience. Focusing on its 50 years of industry leadership, LCS developed EverSafe 360° as the new standard for residents and staff’s overall safety.
“The depth and breadth of knowledge offered by this group of medical professionals will make a positive impact on resident health and wellness,” says Dr. Roy S. Rogers, III, M.D. Dr. Rogers sits on the medical advisory board and lives in a community managed by Life Care Services. “Our input will play a significant role in developing community disaster plans. As a group, we’ll ensure the health and wellness-related issues, regulatory protocol, and clinical outcome strategies are incorporated.
