It came from seeing a need.
Senior living communities have always done their best to provide for your senior’s physical care. They keep them safe, arrange social activities, help them with medication, nutrition and physical therapy, and aid with bathing and dressing when needed. However, seniors have always had needs beyond the physical, and to address a senior’s emotional and behavioral issues after they become serious, often by calling in a contract clinician after the problem has become entrenched, is simply not enough.
It is reactive, not proactive. It is from outside the senior’s community, not from within.
We at WellQor saw a need for something better, a way to provide on-site, ongoing emotional and behavioral care for seniors to help them settle in to their new home, manage life transitions, slow cognitive decline, reduce pain, and address fulfillment issues, grief, anxiety, depression, and even family dynamics. Everything your senior might face.
We created the WellQor Way™ to give seniors at our partner communities a better life.
To achieve that we assembled local teams of expert Psychologists, Neuropsychologists and Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Working with our partner communities locally and across the nation, our on-site teams of professionals strive daily to provide exceptional care for their individual clients as well as improve the overall environment of the communities they serve.
And it works. Seeing our residents’ faces “light up” when their WellQor professional walks in is reward enough, but hearing our communities’ reports of lowered hospitalization rates and medication needs, improved staff effectiveness and satisfaction, enhanced resident social interactions and overall “happiness,” drives home the importance of WellQor’s mission.
