Personalized, proactive, preventative healthcare for Senior Living Communities

Light Year is your in-house team of geriatric specialists whose goal is to keep your residents healthier for longer.

We work directly with you and your patientís families to provide preventative, patientfocused care in all aspects of their lives.

From behavioral health and social work services to chronic neck, back and joint pain, our team of specialists are here to provide cutting-edge care to keep your residents as happy as possible.

During your partnership with Light Year, your primary care physicians (PCPs) will remain an integral part of each residentís health team. We know how important PCPs are for the health and wellness of residents, and our team doesnít replace them — they complement them.

A primary care physician is meant to be the foundation of a patientís care, but they donít specialize in the specific needs of persons in senior living communities, nor do they have the capacity to have frequent touchpoints required to proactively address them. This is where we come in. We add a high-touch layer of very specialized care between the primary care physician, the facility care team, and the hospital that treats these problems in a comprehensive way ó we wrap you in care.

In essence, we are here to make your care teamís lives easier while making your residentsí lives fuller.

Patient success doesnít have to come with any sacrifices. When your residents and their families are happy, so are you.

Let Light Year work alongside your talented staff to bring even more value to your community.

Coordinated Communication and Collaborative Care

The healthcare system is fragmented. This puts undue burden on your communityís care team, your residents and their families.

We relieve the coordination burden on the community care team by acting as a middleman between your staff, hospital systems, patients, and their families.

We identify specific areas where extra support and care will be needed.

This gives you more information from day one, setting your staff and residents up for success before they walk through the door.

Once onboarding is complete, consent is received, and weíve verified insurance, our clinical team will do an initial screening of enrolled residents for:

  • Falls
  • Malnutrition
  • Agitation/ problematic behavior
  • Pressure injuries
  • Depression/ anxiety
  • Cognitive and functional decline
  • Choking risk

And from that day forward, we will continue working with your existing medical providers to provide the most comprehensive care plans for your residents.

Individualized treatment plans are managed on a daily basis, and our team of specialists are there to assess any problems that might arise.

This includes help and assistance in areas where your PCPs might need some extra guidance. Our team of licensed geripsychiatrists are well-versed in mental and behavioral health, helping to enhance the lives of your residents.

But we donít stop at mental wellness. Specialties in musculoskeletal medicine and chronic disease management bring benefits to your community in every way, shape, and form.

We use a hybrid model that merges the most effective attributes of telemedicine with on the ground support.

Tech-enabled delivery not only gives patients and their families the ability to join video appointments effortlessly, but it also saves administration time and hardship. Our app helps manage documents and written medication orders so you donít have to.

Impact

Senior living facilities are often a necessary step in the lives of older adults, and that often leads to an influx of patients that can become overwhelming for staff and facility administration, diminishing the quality of care, resulting in unhappier patients and families.

Light Year rejuvenates your senior living facility and enhances the quality of life for all of your residents.

Proper mental healthcare for your patients can equate to more positive interactions between your hardworking staff.

Additionally, you can expect a happier and more productive staff who can devote their time and resources to doing what they know best.

And when your PCPs can spend more time on treating specific conditions while the Light Year focuses on our areas of expertise, it means fewer hospitalizations, fewer disruptions, and fewer stressors for you.

After partnering with the Light Year and onboarding residents to our care program, you can expect a reduction on falls by 24-35%.

In addition to enhanced safety for your residents, it means fewer complications during your everyday duties and less administrative headache.

We relieve the coordination burden on the community care team by acting as a middleman between your staff, hospital systems, patients, and their families.

This reduces the coordination inconsistencies between family members and providers through quick turnaround on outbound requests to Light Year. This results in significant stress reduction for your community care system.

Our hybrid model is designed to save administrative time and effort. By managing resident appointments, medications, documents, and other paperwork in the app, you can focus your efforts on amplifying other aspects of your community. Not to mention, you can use the chat function to contact us quickly if you ever need anything.

But donít worry, we have a dedicated technology team that can build custom integrations with most popular management systems.

It ensures that integration with our tech works seamlessly with your existing workflows, eliminating the risk of incompatibility.

Once you have more than ten residents signed up with Light Year, your community will start to receive additional benefits, including quality incentives to help improve health outcomes among your patients. On top of that, youíll get weekend support, quarterly staff training, and sponsored community events to keep your residents and their families connected.

We value you as much as we hope youíll value us, so these are some small ways we are happy to give back.

But above all else, the Light Year means healthier and happier lives for the people who make your community so strong.

Multi-specialty care can bring relief and comfort so that your staff can spend more time on the aspects of senior living that they know best.

We help make your community feel more like a home, for patients, their families, and your staff. Light Year is unique, standing above traditional concierge geriatric services. Our primary focus is improving patient care, not chasing numbers, which is why we limit our daily volume of patients that our licensed clinicians see everyday to ensure the highest quality care.

Itís comprehensive care without the comprehensive workload.

All of this naturally culminates into a more firmly established relationship with the families of your residents. We become a trusted resource for them, helping to alleviate some of the pressure that is placed on you and your staff on a daily basis.

  • We arenít just a clinic.
  • Weíre the missing pieces that help make your community feel more whole.
