All too often, resolutions are about the things we give up, the things we choose to do without. No wonder they never get off the ground. This year at Tel-Tron, we’ve decided to take a different approach, by giving you a few ideas on how to enhance and enrich your community and it's residents and to help make your community an even better place to live and work this year. Here is some inspiration to get you started:

Go Green: A healthier lifestyle begins with a healthier environment, and with all the tools and resources available, it is easier than ever to ensure that your community is eco-friendly. Here are a few simple solutions:

  1. Get an Energy Star check: How energy-efficient is your community? An EPA Energy Star check is the best way to know for sure. Not only is an Energy Star certification mean that your facility is eco-friendly, but it also ensures superior comfort for your residents and a reduction of up to one-third in your energy costs. It’s a win-win!
  2. Recycle Everywhere: While most community have implemented recycling programs in their main living areas, this year, make a commitment to facilitate recycling throughout your community by using divided bins in residents’ rooms or on shared hallways. Education is also important. Since seniors did not grow up recycling, many of them know very little about it. Discuss what can and can’t be recycled, using physical examples, so residents are clear on the guidelines and your program is more successful.
  3. Reduce fabric waste: Fabric waste is a little-known environmental problem in the United States. Assist your residents in getting rid of unwanted clothing and linens with a centrally located donation bin. Donate these items to a shelter or a local thrift shop. Many of these places donate unwanted items to fabric recycling facilities, which turn them into cleaning rags, brushes, etc.
