CCRCs Keeping an Eye on your Safety
One inventive CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community also known as a LifePlan community) we know has a large block of apartment units that enter into a hallway like a hotel. They invented a one way flag that sits above the door. Each night a watchman goes by and sets each flag to the off position. When residents open their doors in the morning it pops the flag to the on position. If the watchman does not see the flag pop open by noon time, a safety phone call is made to the apartment. Often times it was just the resident sleeping in, but this is one way community innovation at a CCRC can be put into play to make sure everyone is safe and sound.
