“I had been in the hospital, and after that I had to sign up for escort services to take me down to the dining room. Since being on PT, I have been able to get rid of my escort all together! I walk by myself and farther than I have in years.” – NORMAN, SCARSDALE RESIDENT
FOX Optimal Living proactively monitors clinical indicators of functional decline to provide every resident with a personalized wellness plan. Programming is carried out by highly trained clinicians who specialize in geriatrics and chronic disease management. Outcomes are collected, analyzed and shared in real-time with partners via custom-designed web applications.
Chart 1: Falls by Exposure to Program
Chart 1 depicts monthly fall rate per resident over the course of program exposure. We are proud to see a 34% decrease in falls over 15 months. Falls are a leading cause of bone fractures and hospital admissions among senior living residents. Reducing fall risk helps to maintain vitality and stability of both individual residents and community census.
Chart 2: Hospital Admissions by Exposure to Program
Chart 2 depicts monthly hospital admission rate per resident over the course of program exposure. We are proud to see a 25% decrease in admissions over 15 months. Hospital admissions and higher care needs are leading causes of resident move-out in senior living environments. Reducing hospital admissions helps to maintain census, reduce resident turnover, and increase length of stay.
Chart 3: Length of Stay
Chart 3 compares the median length of stay at The Ambassador of Scarsdale to the national median length of stay in AL/ALZ properties. The median length of stay at The Ambassador is 26 months greater.
Conclusion: By managing the functional wellness of every resident, FOX Optimal Living allows senior living residents to age in place. The Ambassador/FOX partnership is revolutionizing Senior Living and creating outcomes well above industry averages.
