By Journal of Aging Science - March 08, 2017

This study demonstrates the effectiveness of a person-directed care model in multiple long term care facilities. Over a period of five years a selection of data from Signature HealthCare communities was taken to demonstrate the efficacy of a person-directed care model in a nursing home setting on specific metrics to include occupancy rates, return to hospital percentages, finance (EBITDA), and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) 5-star ratings.
