Increased Length of Stay

35 Months vs. 22 Months

It is generally less expensive to care for healthier residents. The healthier the residents are, the less turnover there is with residents by allowing them to stay in the community longer and stay out of the hospital.

Across the industry, the average length of stay in assisted living is 22 months, according to Illumination 2016 Analytics’ 10-year analysis, as presented at the Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference in May 2016.

Live 2 B Healthy® proprietary data shows an average length of stay of over 35 months for our assisted living client communities that have been with us 2 years or longer.

Improve Balance, Flexibility & Strength

Study after study indicates the numerous benefits of exercise on health and longevity, so it’s no surprise that communities who partner with Live 2 B Healthy® find that their Length of Stay is higher than the national average.    Our testing results consistently show improvements in Balance, Flexibility & Strength among our class participants.  

Seniors who are more active are at a decreased risk of falls, as well experiencing improved symptoms of various life-shortening chronic conditions related to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s.

“Exercise training cannot restore tissue that has already been destroyed, but it can protect the individual against a number of the chronic diseases of old age. More important, it maximizes residual function. In some instances, biological age is reduced by as much as 20 years. Life expectancy is increased, partial and total disability are delayed, and there are major gains in quality adjusted life expectancy. Exercise is thus a very important component of healthy living for the senior citizen.”
