Your insurance broker needs to fully understand your unique industry and the emerging threats you face - no matter the size or services offered.


Risks Affecting Assisted Living/Residential Care Communities

  • Complex healthcare laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Ever-changing individual health insurance regulations
  • persistent cyber attack/patient privacy threats
  • Opportunities for patient abuse or neglect from patient handling mishaps to sexual abuse
  • Accidents occurring while transporting patients
  • Patients property theft or damage
  • and more

Any number of incidents can occur, from staff giving the wrong medication to accidents in a physical therapy center to unauthorized access of confidential patient information.

If your care business allows pets, that presents an even greater liability. Being pro-actively prepared for these or other incidents with a comprehensive insurance policy is paramount for your financial stability and business reputation.
