Investing in Quality Through Emergency Preparedness
Argentum continues to expand on its commitment to improving resident safety through its Senior Living IQ initiative. In this issue of Argentum Quarterly, we look at the ever-present topic of emergency preparedness with a focus on natural disasters. Over the past decade, all 50 states and the District of Columbia experienced disasters significant enough for the federal government to declare either a federal emergency or major disaster. Taking care of a frail population requires special planning and perseverance on every level and in every department of a senior living company. It also takes excellent coordination at the local, state, and possibly federal level.
With senior living communities present in every state in the nation, we put together the information and resources in this issue to showcase industry knowledge accrued over decades of caring for older adults, including emergency preparedness best practices and checklists from the industry and government resources. We hope that the information in this issue will offer you guidance as you develop your plans.
Argentum Quarterly was recognized as a 2018 Hermes Creative Awards Platinum Winner and a 2018 Hermes Creative Awards Gold Winner.
