    Long-term care: failure to thrive

    Long-term care is failing to thrive

    The diagnosis of “failure to thrive” describes a multifactorial state of decline, which is often the result of chronic concurrent diseases and functional impairments. Long-term care certainly warrants the diagnosis, “failure to thrive”. This is due to many factors, described clearly by Brendan Williams’ Failure to Thrive? Long-Term Care’s Tenuous Long-Term Future.

    With more than 40% of the COVID-19 related deaths in the United States and Europe occurring in congregate long-term care (~80% in Canada), decades of underfunding, neglect and negative cultural stereotypes have tragically converged. The reality of this carnage is inescapable, and cannot be glossed over with politics, public relations or (even worse) grim resignation.

    Before COVID-19, the sector endured widespread economic and operational problems. Now, nursing homes and assisted living residences, have lost occupancy & utilization, have lower revenues and face immense staff retention and recruitment obstacles.

    Failure to Thrive

    Most of the inventory in congregate senior care is unattractive, inaccessible and/or unaffordable. Why?

    The result is a hodgepodge that costs too much, includes perverse incentives, and is almost impossible to navigate.  As developed economies reel from disproportionate COVID-19 related deaths among the elderly in congregate care settings, isn’t it time to look past old models, which weren’t working anyhow, and start afresh with creative ideas and 21st-century innovation?

    From an ethical point of view, the vulnerable elderly and disabled in our midst deserve better.  The post-World War II Baby-Boom cohort is entering their 70s and could overwhelm the existing age care & support systems.

    From an economics point of view, we need to do something to bend the cost curve.

    The system, to put it bluntly, cannot survive unless we take bold steps.

    COVID-19 has changed the Long Term Care markets; stay UPDATED.
