River Glen of St. Charles will benefit from the expertise of the EverSafe 360° Medical Advisory Board. Seven medical, academic, and health care professionals will advise on the latest health and wellness technologies, innovations, and practices for senior living communities managed by Life Care Services.
“The EverSafe 360° Medical Advisory Board includes physicians and scientists who specialize in epidemiology, mental health, infectious diseases and indoor air quality,” says Rick Exline, executive vice president/senior managing director of Life Plan Communities. “These experts will provide real-time guidance to help ensure the safety and security of our residents and employees.” The advisory board will evaluate research and recommend health care delivery models for senior living care levels.
The COVID-19 pandemic identified an industry need for solutions that enhance the senior living experience. Focusing on its 50 years of industry leadership, LCS developed EverSafe 360° as the new standard for residents and staff’s overall safety.
