Aged care facility management tips to improve wellbeing
If you work in facility management of any kind, you know that you have a duty of care in not only running that facility, but making sure what you do helps improve the lives of those who inhabit it. Never is this more prevalent than in aged care facility management. To run an aged care facility means there is a lot of trust put in your hands, so you need to do your best to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. Here are a few things you can do to improve the wellbeing of your residents.
Keeping on top of preventative maintenance
Preventative maintenance is important for running any facility well. By routinely servicing equipment and machinery, you can identify and stop any potential issues before they arise. By making sure devices such as heaters and air conditioners are always in top condition, your residents can feel comfortable all year round.
Keeping an up-to-date database
Knowing who is in your facility, what their details are, and how to contact their loved ones is crucial when running an aged care facility. Not only does having details such as names help you converse with residents, but if anything were to happen you have an easy way to contact those who need to know.
Making sure residents can receive gifts
Recent times have seen a surge in gifts being sent via post. So when a loved one sends a gift to one of your residents, it’s imperative to make sure they can receive it. Using software to manage parcel delivery is a small but important asset in your arsenal to help improve wellbeing. This way everyone receives their gifts with no issues.
