With her foresight, she could have prevented the whole messy episode and saved everyone a lot of heartache and slime.

Are you a senior care provider who has decided that technology upgrades are necessary to meet the evolving needs of your residents? If so, there is much to consider before implementing the new technology. It is a process to determine how the new technology will help achieve your mission and goals, what the business can invest and how the new technology will affect the bottom line.
