Your Business Intelligence Guide

You’ve likely heard the term business intelligence (BI) before, but have you explored the capabilities of BI tools for senior living? Our newest ebook guides you through it, offering concrete ways senior living operators can use BI tools to their advantage. We cover the top benefits of BI software and features to look for when selecting a solution, then share how Yardi Senior IQ stands out from the crowd. Be sure to download a free copy of the ebook for all the insights! Why should you use business intelligence? Given the tech-driven world we’re in today, it’s no surprise that 80% of organizations are using BI software, according to a 2022 Gartner survey. But beyond simply being in a technology era, leaders are choosing to implement BI solutions based on the ability to unlock critical data — all at the click of a button. That real-time data enables smarter, faster decision-making. As outlined in the ebook, business intelligence helps senior living operators (and other leaders alike) enable data visualization, streamline decisions and educate staff at all levels. That includes managers across marketing, operations and care, not just C-suite executives. You can read the ebook for more details on what BI tools have to offer. The big takeaway is that business intelligence opens doors that manual data processes can’t — helping operators drive growth in their communities. Selecting the solution for you How does one sort through different business intelligence solutions? It’s important to find a transparent vendor who shares exactly what their solution does to help operators succeed. You should be looking for ease of use, customization options and a wide range of capabilities when vetting BI solutions. Check out the ebook for a list of what to look for beyond those must-haves. Say hello to Yardi Senior IQ We can’t go through the benefits of business intelligence without a solution to demonstrate. With that, say hello to Senior IQ! Senior IQ is a cloud-based, integrated business intelligence solution hosted in the Yardi Senior Living Suite. As a BI solution built for the unique needs of senior living, Senior IQ offers real-time data that’s relevant to you. There’s a range of things that make Senior IQ a differentiator, but to name a few, Senior IQ offers: Attractive, customizable dashboards 640+ pre-configured KPIs Internal benchmarks and NIC industry comparison data Portfolio-wide insights plus drill down capabilities HIPAA and SOX compliant workflows Head over to the ebook for the full list, as well as an inside look at dashboards and KPIs being created in Senior IQ today. See what Yardi clients are saying “Yardi Senior IQ is fantastic because it establishes orderly workflows and creates new reports from existing ones, complete with custom dashboards,” shares Michael Bowles, project coordinator at Dial Senior Living. “Investors can get very specific information on demand without having to wait for us to send it.” You’ll find a few more testimonials like this one in the ebook. Getting started with Senior IQ Curious about the implementation process with Senior IQ? Let’s just say you’re not building charts from the ground up. Data is automatically pulled from tools in the Yardi Senior Living Suite — from financials to marketing to care — and populated in Senior IQ. Implementing Senior IQ can be achieved in just two weeks, much less than the median implementation timeline for BI software (approximately four months, according to BI-Survey). Read the ebook While snapshots like this are great, we encourage you to read the ebook for a closer look at business intelligence tools!

Happy New Year!  

To ring in the new year among our senior living team, we’re doing one of our favorite posts — one that features our senior living clients! That is, we’re highlighting clients’ positive stories and celebrations from the 2022 holiday season. We hope these bits of magical, holiday wonder help you start the new year off with a smile. Holiday momentum in senior living At various Maplewood Senior Living communities, the holiday season was filled with creative activities for residents. We’re talking classics like wreath-making and Christmas tree decorating, all the way to an educational class on official White House ornaments. Maplewood also shared one community’s participation in a local holiday toy drive in which residents, families and staff donated to gift to children in need. You can find cheerful photos from each holiday event on Maplewood’s LinkedIn page. Benchmark Senior Living partook in quite a few holiday activities, too. You can see for yourself in this carousel of photos on Benchmark’s social media, which features things like community decorating and residents singing around the piano. Our personal favorite might be this compilation of holiday cookie recipes Benchmark shared, featuring their residents’ top picks. We may have to save these for baking year-round! Residents at a Watercrest Senior Living community enjoyed a holiday feast with loved ones this Christmas season, before heading for horse-drawn carriage rides. Did we mention hot cocoa and freshly-baked cookies were involved? There may not be any horses spotted in their social media collage, but you’ll see another surprise visitor (think red suit, white beard) enjoying the evening with residents. The community even did a second round of this event, pictured on LinkedIn as well. Tapping into the magic of Christmas Eve, check out this video shared by Brightview Senior Living,...

New SL Ebook!

Curious how the right technology can help you optimize staff efficiency, maximize occupancy and boost revenue? In our new ebook, in partnership with McKnight’s Senior Living, you’ll discover how CRM tools thoughtfully designed for senior living drive success. Read the highlight below then read the ebook for all the insights, including a closer look at RentCafe Senior CRM (our single connected solution).   How to choose the right CRM technology Given the life-changing nature of moving into a senior living community, it’s important for sales counselors to connect with prospective residents in a thoughtful, strategic manner. And in today’s day and age, CRM technology is available to aid that process throughout the prospect to resident journey. The right CRM helps sales staff track and nurture leads, build positive relationships and so much more, but not all solutions are built the same. For providers, a CRM solution needs to be designed for the unique needs of senior living in order to maximize success. That’s a key focus of the ebook, which shares the benefits of senior living CRM tools and offers guidance on selecting the solution for you. “A good CRM should do the work for you and allow you to focus on what’s most important: building relationships,” says ebook interviewee Candace Seidle, senior living team leader at Yardi. Discovering RentCafe Senior CRM In an effort to illustrate how the right CRM solution builds success, the ebook spotlights our single connected solution, RentCafe Senior CRM. This all-in-one platform is part of the Yardi Senior Living Suite for senior living providers.

Success With Yardi

When exploring a software solution, you may wish to see testimonials from that vendor’s clients — those who can speak to benefits and results based on their own experience.      At Yardi, we strive to capture these testimonials in various ways. Meeting with our clients to chat through their journey — and see how our solutions are helping them succeed — is our favorite thing. And a recent interview with one of our fantastic senior living clients is no exception. We’re pleased to share pieces from our conversation with Kim Smart, director of systems and support at Anthology Senior Living, in our brand-new case study. The case study covers Anthology’s success with the Yardi Senior Living Suite, featuring Smart’s firsthand experience implementing, customizing and using new tools (plus so much more). We encourage you to read the case study in full, but for now, enjoy the highlight below: Meet Anthology Senior Living Anthology Senior Living, CA Venture’s senior living platform, works to provide their residents with the best hospitality and care. The company develops, acquires and operates senior housing communities across the United States with options for independent living, assisted living and memory care. Anthology has a total of 37 communities in their portfolio, with growth on the horizon. The challenge with antiquated processes Prior to welcoming the Yardi Senior Living Suite, Anthology relied on manual processes. Not only were the processes time consuming, they also increased the risk of errors and led to miscommunication among teams. With a range of communities to serve and rapid expansions underway, the company needed software built to streamline workflows, save time and reduce errors across the board. They searched for a solution that covered every need — software that combined resident care, sales, finance, business intelligence and...

Fundraising With Care  

It’s never a bad time to spotlight positivity in the world, whether it be a kind gesture, a fundraising mission or even a community gathering. We always seek to share these moments from our senior living clients, and we have a roundup of recent stories that are positively inspiring.   To our Yardi senior clients mentioned below and all others, thank you for making the world a better place! Pacifica & Brightview raise funds for Alzheimer’s Each year, Pacifica Senior Living partners with the Alzheimer’s Association to host fundraisers, charity events and educational seminars to raise awareness about memory loss conditions. Pacifica communities — including both staff members and residents — participate in these activities. In addition to spreading awareness through their 2022 events, Pacifica raised $67,435 in support of the Alzheimer’s Association. Pacifica also ranked among the top 30 national teams supporting the Alzheimer’s Association, and earned the team longevity award for supporting them for over five years. Pacifica shared the delightful news on their company blog, giving a special shout out to Pacifica Senior Living Paradise Valley for being the top fundraising community. A warm congrats to Pacifica for their efforts. For Brightview Senior Living, another dedicated Yardi client, supporting the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is second nature. During October and November of this year, Brightview partnered with the association to partake in the walk to end Alzheimer’s, raising funds along the way. “Together, we’ve already raised over $135,000 to #EndAlz…and the year isn’t over yet,” shared Brightview on LinkedIn. $135,000 in raised funds and a dedication to raising awareness? That’s inspiring to say the least. Well done, Brightview! Watercrest hosts annual festival of trees fundraiser Holiday spirit is in full swing for Watercrest Senior Living, especially at their Winter Park community. They kicked off December with their annual festival of trees celebration, a fundraiser that supports the Advent Health Neuroscience Institute Parkinson’s and Movement Disorder Outreach. The festival includes a silent auction in which attendees bid on trees and other holiday items. It’s a lovely gathering that combines festive themes with an important mission, so kudos to all at Watercrest!   Maplewood shares giving Tuesday mission In honor of giving Tuesday, taking place the week after Thanksgiving, Maplewood Senior Living shared their drive to give back. Inspired by their very own Maplewood Senior Living HEART Foundation, they encouraged all to consider the act of giving. “Our mission is to give support and financial help to Maplewood associates and their families who find themselves facing challenging times of unexpected, life-altering circumstance,” noted Maplewood on LinkedIn. This generous fundraising mission calls for recognition! Fantastic work by those at Maplewood. Nevada HAND celebrates employee giving campaign At Nevada HAND, giving back to their communities is of the utmost importance. That’s why they created their employee giving campaign and this year, the organization raised nearly $2,000 to make the campaign flourish. The initiative celebrates Nevada HAND’s incredible staff and the funds help provide life-enriching resources for residents. “We are so grateful for the hardworking, generous employees who make up our organization and truly believe in our mission,” shared Nevada HAND on LinkedIn. We love seeing our clients give back to their employees and residents — nicely done, Nevada HAND! Spreading positivity through the new year   It’s great to see our senior living clients channel positivity and passion in creative ways, often partaking in fundraising efforts that change the world. Once again, a well-deserved congratulations to all for their inspiring efforts! We look forward to sharing more stories like these as we enter the new year. What’s inspiring you...

Channeling Diversity

Advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) is a focus for many senior living operators. And thanks to a recent survey conducted by the Senior Living DEIB Coalition, we can see how operators’ efforts look today. The report reveals where the industry stands in terms of diversity — and shares how organizations can drive positive change moving forward. Be sure to read more on the Senior Living DEIB Survey for all the insights, but we put together a summary to highlight the main takeaways:   Survey reveals diversity efforts in senior living Previewed back in March, the Senior Living DEIB Survey provides baseline data regarding diversity initiatives. The data acts as a starting point for establishing trends in the senior living space, which future surveys will build upon.   While there’s still work to do in terms of operators improving diversity within their organizations, according to the report, the industry is starting from a place of strength. Summarized by McKnight’s Senior Living, the report reveals that: 95% of participants said they are taking steps to recruit potential employees from underrepresented groups 90% of responding organizations focus on gender, race/ethnicity and sexual orientation, whereas age and religion are less commonly used dimensions of diversity 73% of senior living professionals in participating organizations are women. Overall, 53% of employees are white, and 46% are people of color 56% of survey participants’ companies have a formal DEIB committee responsible for developing and implementing DEIB strategies or initiatives 27% of participants have a formal DEIB program, whereas 46% have implemented some initiatives or policies 17% of executives in participating companies are people of color, with 40% of women in executive roles This data was captured from 44 participating organizations across assisted living, memory care, independent living, skilled nursing...

Advance your sales & marketing

Did you know more than 54 million adults ages 65 and older live in the United States — roughly 16.5% of the total U.S. population? And by 2050, that number is projected to rise to an estimated 85.7 million — roughly 20% of the U.S. population? As the aging population continues to grow, more will be searching for adequate housing opportunities to fit their needs — from active adult to independent to assisted living, all the way to memory care. That means senior living operators will require effective methods to attract prospects, nurture leads and retain residents as demand grows and competition heightens.   Customer relationship management (CRM) software is the answer of today and tomorrow, and we created a fresh ebook to illustrate that.

Yardi Clients Recognized

Have you read about the Best of the Best Awards — an initiative spearheaded by Argentum? The awards recognize innovative new programs in senior living and you guessed it, the 2022 winners are in! We’re pleased to recognize Benchmark Senior Living and Senior Lifestyle (our wonderful Yardi senior living clients), for earning a place on the Best of the Best list. Read on to learn about their award-winning programs. About Argentum Best of the Best Awards Released in a recent edition of Argentum’s Senior Living Executive resource, the Best of the Best Awards recognize programs, products and services that are improving the future of senior living. More specifically, those that solve a particular challenge or advance excellence in the industry. A total of six senior living organizations were recognized by Argentum this year, including Benchmark Senior Living and Senior Lifestyle. Award winner: Benchmark Senior Living Need inspiration for your onboarding department? Look no further! Benchmark Senior Living earned a place on the Best of the Best list for their Virtual General Orientation program, a hybrid learning model in which in-person instruction supplements online sessions. The program is offered weekly for new hires across the company. According to Benchmark, a key benefit of the program is time savings. To accommodate new hires before, staff members often spent hours planning and delivering live programming, which took time away from other pressing initiatives. With the new-and-improved blend of virtual and in-person onboarding, Benchmark now saves over 500 hours of staff labor each week. The program also helps Benchmark ensure their onboarding content is consistent across time and location, and gives new hires the opportunity to engage with staff from other communities in a virtual setting. Read more about Benchmark’s Virtual General Orientation program. Award winner: Senior Lifestyle In an effort to enhance diversity efforts, Senior Lifestyle launched their Better Together initiative — the program that earned their place on the Argentum Best of the Best list. Better Together includes educational programs that showcase diverse individuals, holidays and cultures each month within Senior Lifestyle communities. And to create the themes for each month-long program, Senior Lifestyle brought together community leaders and residents for brainstorming sessions. This resulted in creative ideas like a monthly calendar equipped with resources, games and celebration ideas to accompany each theme. At its core, Better Together creates a space in which people of different backgrounds feel represented. What better way to improve the community experience for Senior Lifestyle staff and residents? Read more on Senior Lifestyle’s launch of Better Together.  Read more From us here at Yardi, congrats to both Benchmark Senior Living and Senior Lifestyle!

Staffing Crisis Shifts...

Employee turnover and attracting caregiving staff (traditionally cited as the top challenges among senior living operators) are now being reported as the second and third biggest challenges senior living organizations are confronted with. That finding comes from the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC) via their recent survey. Described as a “positive sign of relief” for senior living operators, the data suggests the industry is slowly turning the corner in regard to staffing challenges. The survey — Executive Survey Insights: Wave 44 — in addition to NIC’s latest survey (Wave 45), are packed with more discoveries on the state of senior living. Keep reading for a highlight: About NIC Executive Survey Insights What are NIC Executive Survey Insights? Introduced back in 2020, the initiative seeks to deliver real-time insights on the pandemic’s impact in senior living. By distributing surveys to operators across the U.S., NIC gauges what obstacles communities are facing and measures their pace of recovery. This Wave 44 survey includes responses from July 25 to August 21 of this year, drawn from owners and executives of 55 small, medium and large senior housing and skilled nursing operators across the nation. As for Wave 45, responses are from August 22 to September 18, pulled from 47 operators. Wave 44 & 45 findings While the Wave 44 report reveals several important findings, this stands out most: staffing challenges are no longer being cited as the number one concern for industry operators. Instead, the report shows rising operator expenses as the top challenge organizations are currently facing (according to 86% of survey respondents). So in regard to the staffing crisis, the Wave 44 data shows promise. And building off that positivity, three-quarters of respondents say they’re optimistic that more improvements are on...
