Rehab Units Provide Long Term Care Facilities With Additional Revenue Streams


Light Ideas continues to research ways for Long Term Care Facility operators to boost occupancy and improve cash flow. Many owners and operators are now looking to Rehab Units for this purpose. The Rehab Units are designed to appeal to younger consumers rather than Long Term Care Nursing Residents who tend to be older and frailer. Most of the Rehab Suites are private and feature flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet connections and the latest exercise equipment.


The push to add Rehab Units stems from increased demand. Each year in the U.S. there are more than 600,000 surgeries for joint replacements, primarily knees and hips. Joint replacements are expected to dramatically increase in the coming years with the aging of Baby Boomers. Long Term Care Facility owners and operators are tapping into the growth of Rehab Services which are reimbursed by Medicare of Private Insurance.  But attracting Short Term Care residents comes at a cost. They expect a private room and
lots of amenities.
In an effort to find Resident Room Furniture to fit the expectations of  younger, short-term residents, Light Ideas has identified the newest "Hospitality Look" style of furniture rather than the Queen Ann or Camel Back traditional styles of the past. We are also seeing the use of the new Vinyls & Faux Leathers along side the Barrier Proof Crypton Fabrics. Please take a look at our new "Hospitality Look" furniture and call for a free quote. Free fabric and vinyl samples are available as is our decorating advice.
The newest trend in decorating Independent and Assisted Living facility Common Living areas is the "Hospitality" look. Those decision makers tired of the traditional Queen Ann/Wing Chair look or Chippendale leg are opting, instead, for the more sleek and modern look to update their facility. This look definitely makes a statement
to prospective customers and their families.
