Potomac, Maryland (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
Ever heard that saying, “If I had a nickel…?” What if one had a nickel for every time one held the door open for a senior? What about helping a senior put groceries in the car? Potomac Seniors Village wants to help individuals get those nickels with the new “Refer-A-Friend” program. In this program, for every resident that is referred and placed in one of Potomac Seniors Village’s premier assisted living facilities in Maryland, a referral incentive is given.
The program originally began when Potomac Seniors Village wanted to establish relationships with surrounding organizations. This assisted living facility in Maryland is centrally nestled among many health care facilities. Instead of working on a competitive basis, Potomac Seniors Village works to establish a good rapport with the health care facilities so that they can collaboratively help seniors at any level of care. The “Refer-A-Friend” program is a great option because it brings the community together in providing support for seniors.
Many organizations and affiliations can take advantage of this program. Hospitals, for example, discharge seniors every day. Discharge planners work with seniors to find a place when home is not an option anymore. Potomac Seniors Village can work with hospitals to place seniors in its assisted living facility in Maryland.
Potomac Seniors Village also works closely with many hospice agencies, providing immediate care on a short-term notice. This makes the assisted living community unique because not all facilities provide hospice care. In addition, families who have seniors living at home have the option of applying their loved ones for assisted living or hospice care.
In addition, other assisted living facilities in Maryland can take advantage of this program as well. The demand for senior care can be so high that many seniors are put on waiting lists, not knowing when it they can move into the assisted living facility. Potomac Seniors Village works with assisted living facilities in Maryland who have waiting lists by placing seniors immediately in one of its homes.
Who else is this program offered to? Anyone who wants to participate! Mom’s friend needs reminders and help administering medication? A co-worker’s father is immobile and needs help with activities of daily living? Take advantage of the new “Refer-A-Friend” program with Potomac Seniors Village!
The greatest advantage of this program is that seniors receive the help that they deserve. Potomac Seniors Village understands that it is hard for families to accept that a loved one needs to move into an assisted living. Concerns such as cost, care and comfort arise. Thus, knowledge of how an assisted living facility in Maryland operates is the key to alleviating all the concerns that families have. Potomac Seniors Village wants to spread this knowledge among the community so that families and friends can seek out those that need these services most. The “Refer-A-Friend” program is just a little incentive to have families and friends spread this knowledge among the community.
To participate in the new “Refer-A-Friend” program, first take a tour of Potomac Seniors Village. Explore the facility and learn about the different services provided. Think of any friends who are in need of assistance in daily living. Refer that friend to Potomac Seniors Village and if that senior moves into the facility, the referral incentive goes into effect.
The “Refer-A-Friend” program is a great way to have friends and the community involved in helping seniors find an assisted living facility in Maryland. So why not get that nickel from Potomac Seniors Village? By working together, seniors can find a home which is the best fit.
