Assisted Living Tidbits
Are you looking to do something new with your life? Many people are considering and talking about opening their own assisted living facility as a new life path!
We think this is great, and we encourage anyone who wishes to enter this very exciting and important field. However, we also recommend giving a lot of thought to all of the challenges (and reward) that come with operating an assisted living home. It's not easy work by any stretch of the imagination. On a daily basis, you may be dealing with things like incontinence, mental illness or conditions such as Alzheimer's, demanding family members, facility maintenance and cleaning, as well as inspections by the state.
The rewards...well, I think we all know that helping seniors and people who are ill can be incredibly rewarding, as well as being a business owner and operator!
We recommend that you look at our "how to" page on opening an assisted living facility. Many people have commented, and there is a lively discussion that may be enlightening and helpful for you!
Our Original Assisted Living Tutorials :
We recently created a tutorial on making your facility videos better! We took our camera and did some shots using a 'slider' which makes your videos appear to have motion, giving it a much more dynamic effect!
Any assisted living facility can create a video that looks professional and unique. This is an important part of any facility's marketing effort, so creating good video is key!
