Over one million Americans reside in assisted living care facilities. That number is expected to double by 2030 in preference to a traditional nursing home. The growth of Assisted Living facilities has rebounded since the economic recovery from 1% in 2009 to 5% in 2014. Hospice of the Western Reserve has recognized the value of having dedicated nursing home and assisted living teams, thus in 1994 the agency implemented these specialized teams. In 2007 they again addressed their unique needs implementing medication access (lock boxes), on-call availability and care attendant issues. This presentation takes the Assisted Living team model to another level, to further delineate the unique needs of this type of setting.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the process of creating the innovation of the care commitment and care journey through a transdisciplinary committee
2. State how to effectively penetrate your service area despite competition
3. Identify measurable outcomes that can be utilized to indicate return on investment
