Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

2013-14 Strategic Goals

1) Increase Day Care Census - focus on census growth through Long Term Care, Alzheimer's Disease Initiative (ADI), Private Pay and Scholarship Programs.

2) Alzheimer's Focus - Increase emphasis place on Alzheimer's or Dementia Related Diseases (ADRD)

3) Business Process Redesign - Improve organization effectiveness & efficiency in order to expand reach in community.

Increase Day Care Census-
1) Leverage LTMC contract and provider network to increases census in centers
2) Convert “One Day” visitors to Long-Term Clients
3) Centralize admissions and focus efforts on underserved populations
4) Leverage quality and consistency care as a tool to attract clients and insures uniformity of services organization wide
5) Leverage Awareness efforts to drive attendance and showcase the benefits of daily interaction

Alzheimer's Focus
Raise awareness for ADRD and drive client to the centers.

Adult Day Care Capacity - 186 Clients Per Day is our capacity
Melbourne - 76
Micco - 50
Titusville - 60

We are currently working on increasing our daily census for Adult Day Care and have the capacity to increase overall 10-15% based on the site. Additionally, with an increase in day care census comes transportation miles.

We have a fleet of wheelchair accessible vans at our disposal and offer transportation to/from adult day care and non-emergency transportation.

We continue to make strides in both of our core programs: adult day care and transportation. Additionally, we are increasing our reach in in-home respite.

Last year, with the restrictions set upon us due to COVID, we changed our course to help home-bound seniors and to date have delivered over 1,000,000 meals to the seniors of our county.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
