11. Build Your Team - Retaining good staff can save you a lot of money (see Team Building).  It cost a lot to advertise, recruit and train new staff.  Ways to keep your current staff:

  b. Do team building activities - parties, dinners, card games, bowling leagues, etc. have been proven to make staff more satisfied.

12. Keep Your Residents Healthy - keeping your residents in good health will add to your bottom line since this equates to lower vacancies. 12 Ways to Recession Business Success

The importance of charging residents for the essential care provided.  

Caring was my ministry and ministries typify giving and not receiving.  However, over the years, I learned I needed to make a profit and a decent one at that.

In business you have many bills that absolutely must be paid and many people counting on you.  If you have employees, they are counting on you to pay them decent wages and benefits.  The residents are expecting good food, electricity, enough care assistance to meet their needs, activities and so on.  Your personal needs are just as important, like supporting your family decently, having something saved for emergencies, and to save for retirement.   However, profit can never compromise care!

Several years ago I had an awful incident at my facility, which greatly illustrates the need for making sure you are charging for care provided.  One day... Charging for Care Provided

Huge Changes Ahead for Community Based Care Industry excerpt:
In my opinion many of California?s new reformation laws for residential care and assisted living facilities will no doubt trickle through the other states.

Below are the bills we feel will have the most significant impact:

By Diane Morrow, LNHA, Author, Educator, Expert, PAST 49 bed RCFE Owner
I think a nuclear bomb may be dropped on the assisted living industry in California.  We can prevent this from happening but only if everyone helps and takes action.  As many as 1000 small care homes which are small businesses could be put out of business if we don?t stop the RCFE Reform and plan accordingly to fix the problems with RCFEs.  Advocacy groups are calling for the laws governing RCFEs to be reformed, but passing 14 new RCFE (Residential Care for the Elderly, also called Assisted Living) laws governing these facilities is not the answer.
