ProfitSword Partners with Christian Living Communities & Cappella Living Solutions to Provide Data Management Technology for Senior Living Business IntelligenceSenior living organization set to implement ProfitSage at all community locations for enhanced operational and organizational efficiency and to spur additional company growth. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (March 31, 2020) - ProfitSword, a premier developer of business intelligence and data integration software for the senior living industry, has entered into an agreement with Christian Living Communities & Cappella Living Solutions to implement ProfitSage, an advanced forecasting and budgeting platform capable of providing instant access to all performance-related data throughout an organization in real time. As a rapidly expanding operator of not-for-profit senior living communities under its Christian Living Communities brand along with for profit locations under the Cappella Living Solutions name, the senior living organization is set to implement ProfitSage at all 24 of its locations in addition to two that are currently under development. Providing all company employees with access to ProfitSage will streamline the strategic business planning process and maximize the ability to identify additional growth opportunities. Due to the organization's large portfolio and with its ongoing expansion that added to the complexities of running a successful business, the Christian Living Communities/Cappella Living Solutions leadership team recognized the crucial value that access to real-time performance data can provide in ensuring sustained growth. With the implementation of ProfitSage, employees throughout the organization will be equipped with a single source dashboard where all performance-related data is automatically collected and presented. Employees can therefore save countless hours otherwise lost to manually gathering information while being confident that the data they are analyzing represents an accurate depiction of the current business environment. Seamlessly able to integrate with an array of disparate data-generating systems, ProfitSage will be able to provide Christian Living Communities/Cappella Living Solutions with effortless and instant access to a multitude of metrics that includes occupancy levels, expenses as well as labor time and attendance."Many operators within the senior living market have traditionally run their businesses by looking in the rearview mirror to analyze historical trends, yet operating as a large company with a goal to continue growing means that we cannot afford to use such an approach as it essentially blinds you to future opportunities and upcoming changes within the industry," says Camille Burke, Chief Operating Officer at Christian Living Communities/Cappella Living Solutions. "When considering the implementation of ProfitSage, we were immediately impressed with the solution's ease-of-use and its ability to drill down deep into specific data segments that can demonstrate where our organization is heading, not just where it has been. We look forward to providing each of our employees with the exact information that they need precisely when they need it, allowing them to quickly make informed decisions so as to maximize our business planning efficiency as well as catering to the changing needs of our residents."ProfitSage's automated reporting abilities will ensure seamless access to real time performance data for all employees at Christian Living Communities/Cappella Living Solutions. This feature provides each staff member with an ability to receive up-to-date information in the form of customizable reports that can be automatically delivered to a user's email or dashboard. Such reports can provide up-to-date metrics on a specific data segment, department, community location or an entire portfolio."We are honored to have been selected by Christian Living Communities/Cappella Living Solutions to provide them with an ability to eliminate data silos by implementing ProfitSage, ensuring that any performance data is readily available the moment that it is needed in order to devise the best possible business strategy," states Paul Bennie, Director of Business Development at ProfitSword. "Strategic planning and the ability to anticipate upcoming opportunities or risks is critical to maintaining a successful operation and ensuring that company growth continues no matter what market a business serves. Christian Living Communities/Cappella Living Solutions has been able to achieve an impressive expansion with its operations around the country, and we are thrilled to now have an opportunity to provide them with the latest that business intelligence technology has to offer in order to drive their growth, revenues and efficiency even further."Read More

Healthcare professionals are observing a declining senior population, particularly those who chose to go it on their own. The Covid Pandemic, a scourge particularly for seniors when it began, has reduced faith in Assisted Living as a viable and safe solution for the elderly.Many have chosen to delay choosing a senior living solution. This is understandable given the harsh restrictions assisted living facilities were saddled with at the height of the pandemic. Today, however, it is a different story. Life is quickly returning to normal, very much like the time prior to Covid.The benefits to you making the move are numerous. First, by taking this step you can prevent social isolation. Unless you really thrive on being alone, one of the best reasons for joining a senior community is social. The keyword here is community. It is a place to thrive as you get to know your neighbors and begin new relationships.By becoming part of an assisted living community, your free time is yours to do with what you want, no longer worrying about paying the bills, cooking, cleaning, and remembering to take medications. You'll eat three meals a day (or more) designed specifically for senior health. And you'll enjoy sharing them in a dining room with friends and family. You'll have all your transportation needs met. Need a ride to the doctor? Want to go to Walmart? Transportation is provided.You'll regain your independence, very much like heading off to college. With numerous activities and outings daily, you'll begin to realize that aging is better than you thought. You will experience 24/7 professional care. Care from people you know and who know you.And finally, when you join a senior living community you'll be in a place where people are tuned into your needs and are watching out for your health and wellbeing.

There comes a time in life when you notice a shift in the quality of life for your parent, partner or older adult in your life and it might be time to have a conversation about in-home care.The change may be the result of physical limitations, memory loss or a drop in emotional well-being, often times caused by isolation. Under the COVID 19 restrictions we are currently living in, this feeling of isolation and possibly fear can be heightened. Perhaps you have noticed a cognitive decline, or a decrease in personal care. Are they remembering to take their medications? In addition, if they have a medical procedure scheduled, they may need extra help when they come back home. No matter what the reason is for the drop in their quality of life, the one thing for certain is you want to help but where do you start? Life does not prepare us for this conversation and finding the right words or knowing the right time to talk is not easy.Having the ConversationIt is important to respect and honor your loved ones ability to make this decision with you. Listen to how they define what they perceive as a quality life to help them continue to live in their own home and do the things that bring them joy. Once this is defined, ask how you can partner with them to make their wishes a reality. If other family members are involved, your parent or partner needs to make their wishes known to all and gain everyones support. Set aside a time that works for everyone, and talk frequently. If not everyone is able to meet in person, plan ahead to include them electronically. Having these discussions over a period of time will give your loved one a sense of control, and peace of mind regarding their future. Knowing that the decision does not have to be made right away gives everyone time to explore all options. Waiting until there is a crises, health or financial, would create more stress and less choices for them.How Rhythms Can HelpWhether together you are considering a senior living community or staying in their own home, it is important to allow them to maintain a sense of control and dignity.

Rhythms Home Care has a highly trained team, dedicated to helping those living in their own home with additional support services for a successful life, by their own definition.
