I was at the gorgeous Regency Jewish Heritage Post-acute Rehab and Nursing Center this past Sunday.

I was immediately struck by how clean and immaculate the facility truly is. You could literally eat off the carpets, it is that clean.

Did you know that a May 19 report (BUSINESS WIRE) — cites new public opinion survey results which reveals that those selecting a senior living community or skilled nursing facility for themselves or a loved one place a high priority on cleanliness, healthy and convenient food options, and hotel-like amenities.

With an estimated 70 percent of people who reach age 65 needing some form of long-term service and support1, Ecolab Inc. recently commissioned a survey of 400 Americans involved in selecting senior living communities to determine how these decisions are made, the factors that influence these decisions, and the expectations for services and amenities offered by senior living communities.

“Choosing a community for a loved one is highly emotional. In fact, more than half of the respondents reported that this was one of the most emotional decisions they’ve ever made,” said Leah Larson, director of Long Term Care Marketing for Ecolab’s Institutional business. “And, with 10,000 people turning 65 years old today, and every day until the year 2029, exponentially more people will make these important decisions each day.”
