Senior living community operations are exposed to a wide range of risks. In order to analyze and minimize risks in each component of the operations, operators must determine what standards of care applies or should apply and to which they may be held.

There are many ways to quantify the residents’ support of the management of the community. As with any business, word-­of-­mouth endorsements by your customers are your best advertisement. Residents will define quality as simply the difference between what they expect and what they get. If their expectations are exceeded (or even just met), they will represent your community as a quality operation. Conversely, if you are unable to meet their expectations, or fail to deliver on your promises, they will not recommend your community to friends and can even become hostile. Learn about the importance of resident satisfaction, how to manage moments of truth and the service model. Explore the cycles of good and bad service and how to handle resident complaints effectively. Ideas are also offered on how to conduct resident opinion surveys and interpret results.

Sailing and history of the Chesapeake Bay. A Great Blue Heron led our sailboat downriver between banks of the lush green foliage of Back Creek on Elk River at the northern entrance to the Chesapeake Bay. As we rounded each bend, the solitary bird would be floating on the brown mirror of water. With wingtips and feet stirring brief circles, he would take off as if in slow motion, glide ahead, then bank sharply around the next bend to await us once more. After a few more turns in this game of grace, the heron suddenly wheeled up a narrow tributary, and the forest seemed to close forever behind him.

There is wildness about this place. A wildness that man has tried to tame since these scenic Islands were first discovered. While the larger islands have yielded to man’s persistence, the 100 or so smaller islands allow us only to visit their shores, our footprints erased with the tides. They are hospitable to only the most hardy of God’s creatures and man is not among them. And as the curtain of mist temporarily lifts above the small islands of the archipelago, mankind is not one of the permanent inhabitants. He does not and cannot share the harmony of this beauty with the eagle, the salmon, and the Orca, for he is only the audience, simply the spectator in this synchronized natural realm, and a visitor only intermittently cruising in the clouds.

Blue water sailing through Hurricane Bob. The sailing was spectacular for the first several days and nights. Thick moonlight, the viscous night light that marks the passage of twilight, gives the great blue sea swells their animation under a gentle wind. The swells, rising and falling seemingly without end, could have originated from some storm thousands of miles away. Constant motion is an image that is more the hard truth of nature than the comforting illusion. The natural world before me cares little for the static, the fixed, and the passive. Here man is just another expression of life, neither feared, envied, acknowledged, nor needed.

The empty bell tower at the stone ruins of Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Rosario has withstood the test of time. This grand sentinel and has overseen the birth and death of this once busy shipbuilding center since 1792 from its hilltop perch. San Blas was first settled in 1767 because the sheltered harbor at the mouth of the river provided a good location for supplying the missions of Baja California and to transport soldiers north by sea to avoid the pugnacious Indians of Sonora. In 1768 Father Junipero Serra left from San Blas aboard the Purisima Concepcion to take over the work of the expelled Jesuits in Baja California. He would go on to establish the first missions of California. Later San Blas would stage the inflaming battles for the independence and sovereignty for Mexico.

Women have two to three times as many hip fractures as men, and white post menopausal women have a 1 in 7 chance of a hip fracture during their lifetime.

They lie on the edge of the province's collective memory like a dream scarce remembered; mythical and elusive, full of meaning and great beauty, yet incomprehensible to the waking mind. Impossible not to marvel at, and revel in, these are the Queen Charlotte Islands, arguably one of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the world. This group of islands nestled under the Alaska panhandle is the ancestral home of the Haida - the West Coast Aboriginals who have lived here for thousands of years.

This is a story about family and love on Catalina Island off the California coast. This island paradise was inhabited by different groups of Native Americans for over 7,­000 years. In 1542 they greeted the first European explorer, Don Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo. Sixty years later, Don Sebastian Viscaino of Spain stopped by the Island while exploring the California coast looking for good ports. This is when the Island was given the name “Santa Catalina” after St. Catherine of Alexandria.
