Are you responsible for maintaining occupancy levels at your senior care accommodation business ?
Occupancy level is a critical factor in ensuring the success of any aged care facility.
National averages of occupancy levels have been falling due to people needing higher level care exercising a choice to stay at home for as long as they can. This preference has been supported by increased availability and funding of home care packages.
The national residential aged care occupancy rate declined quite dramatically to around 89 per cent by June 2019.
Past approaches to marketing are not longer applicable or effective. Consumers have more information and different channels of communication and review tools compared to a decade earlier.
Much publicised factors leading to Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety have no doubt added to reticence to enter residential aged care.
The threat from Covid-19 outbreaks has also indirectly impacted occupancy rates.
Talk to an OMS consultant, we are provide proven techniques to maintain high occupancy levels.
Regular changes in the residential care industry means continuous effort is required to keep up-to-date with changing patterns of consumer awareness and paths that are taken to build awareness about your aged care home and life-style services.
Maintaining an effective application and waitlist register will minimise the number of days that your rooms are vacant. Consistent follow up with waitlisted residents will ensure that the waitlist is fresh and valuable to your organisation.
