LeadingAge PA presents the latest edition of Strategy Spotlight. Our Strategy Spotlight profiles case studies of our members’ best practices and successful projects. This information will shine a light on the many ways our members have confronted challenges in their market and developed effective programs, partnerships, and building projects to further their mission and serve a community need.

The latest Strategy Spotlight focuses on United Zion's successful falls prevention program. While the statewide average for this measure is consistently greater than 3 percent each quarter, United Zion has been successful in maintaining a percentage of less than 1 percent according to Medicare.gov’s Nursing Home Compare quality measures. This Strategy Spotlight focuses on why the staff at United Zion believes they are so successful at this important quality measure.

LeadingAge PA offers a variety of resources to assist with decision-making and strategic planning. When considering the information presented in this case study, please refer to this infograph which provides statistics related to the frequency and the high cost of falls for seniors.

If you would like to submit a suggestion for a Strategy Spotlight case study or have any questions related to the age and income demographics provided in this announcement, please contact Brandie Karpew at brandie@leadingagepa.org or Marianne Lake at marianne@leadingagepa.org.
