Running an RCFE is difficult, but it doesn't have to be done alone!
Elder's Choice® is a professional consulting firm who specializes in the management, marketing and consultation of small Board and Care and Assisted Living facilities with up to 49 beds. Our philosophy of successful operation stems from over 30 years of combined experience in senior care. Elder's Choice® staff consist of RCFE administrators, skilled nursing discharge planners, marketing specialists, web designers, graphic artists, licensed general contractors and other clinical consultants who are well versed in Title 22 regulations and facility operations.
The most popular question we hear from Licensees and Administrators is:
"How do I get more residents and keep my facility full?"
When you sign with Elder's Choice®, you are signing on with a partner for life! Our success depends on your success. We help by connecting you with placement agents and reach out to discharge planners in the area. Simply put, we know how to put our clients in the limelight of agencies that are looking to place new residents everyday.
You may ask how we do this and the answer is simple: Over the years we have established close relationships with placement agents and work side by side with them to help ensure our clients' success.
Placement agents are a big source,
but not the only source!
To be successful in the RCFE business, you must explore all avenues of marketing. You cannot simply open a facility and expect residents and agents to come knocking on your door unless they know you exist. That's why our marketing campaign will consist of guiding you toward the proper channels of exposure within your community and beyond. Many of you reading this are likely not aware of the many marketing options available to you.

Unlimited access to 24/7 consulting via email and text (many say the membership price alone is worth this very valuable service).

EC CONNECT: Your legally required Title 22 and Health and Safety Code update service included for FREE!

Monthly visits to your facility to ensure compliance regulation and quality assurance.
