Smaller Is Better…

About our Residental Assisted Living Facilities in Carroll County, MD

“I’ve been saying that for years, and now the rest of the world is saying it too.
The “Big Box” communities have been hit harder by COVID-19 than Residential Assisted Living homes coast to coast. That is for many reasons, but the fact is RAL homes have had only minor disruption in service and the health of their residents resulting in limited impact over all. Many of the safety protocols we have been operating with for years are only now being recognized and copied by Big Box communities.
When it comes right down to it, smaller homes are safer overall with better caregiver-to-resident ratios. They are actual homes and not hotels or institutions pretending to be. The need for Residential Assisted Living homes is growing by the day. Residents are moving out of larger facilities and into RAL homes because they are recognizing that smaller is better. There is also growing “pent up demand” as many families have opted to take care of their elderly loved ones that need assistance at home. That is creating a lot of stress and family pressures that they are anxious to resolve.
The good news is this pent up demand will be exploding onto the market, filling beds from coast to cost. The need is bigger than ever and to help meet the demand for more beds and RAL homes, the RAL Academy has expanded their training options to include a virtual 3-Day FAST TRACK training experience. There has never been a better time to start or expand within the RAL industry.
Always remember to Do Good And Do Well.”
