Mountainside New Jersey, and The Society of Licensed Nursing Home Administrators, was the most recent presentation by Irving of the workshop entitled, “The Birth Dearth: Why Occupancies Are Low & What to Do about It”. The session focused on why occupancies and utilization are so poor at this time, and a four point strategy for surviving and even thriving in this difficult environment.
Throughout the US, the dramatic decline in the over 75 population is having a dramatic effect on occupancy in skilled nursing centers. While orthopedic patients and persons with Alzheimer’s and related disorders compensate for some of the decline, the numbers of these markets simply cannot make up the difference. Using best in class business practices, however it is possible for nursing centers to respond to this declining market and survive the “demographic dip” which has begun and will continue for 5 to 7 years.
