Assisted living facilities provide valuable services to the elderly population. By encouraging independent living for as long as possible, while providing assistance when needed, you allow your residents to maintain mobility, quality of life, and personal dignity a little longer.
Unfortunately, operating facilities such as this, those that safeguard the health, wellbeing, and even lives of residents places you at significant risk – especially if you’re operating without adequate insurance coverage for assisted living centers.
We have a 50 year history of serving the business needs of countless New Jersey businesses over the years – including assisted living facilities like the one you operate. Because of this long history we have the intimate industry knowledge to help you make the right choices about your coverage needs. The fact that we’re an independent agency means we have access to the products you need rather than pushing insurance programs from a particular company that may not fully meet your needs. It also means we are able to utilize multiple carriers in order to provide the best quotes.
Why is Insurance so Important for Assisted Living Centers?
Elder care in the United States is an industry poised for unprecedented growth as Baby Boomers are reaching certain stages of life. The next twenty years may see growth unlike any other. This means increased demands on infrastructure and rising instances of elder abuse claims, lawsuits, and other risks that make insurance a necessity rather than a luxury for these facilities.
Lawsuits are expensive to fight and medical malpractice claims and lawsuits are shockingly common in today’s society. Assisted living centers make convenient targets for families that are concerned over the failing health of loved ones and frustrated over the situation altogether. The facility and administrators make convenient targets when things go wrong – even small things. Larger mistakes can be particularly problematic.
The right kind of liability insurance coverage can not only help you with the costs of legal defense against these lawsuits, but can also help pay out awards and settlements when the lawsuits occur.
What Kind of Insurance for Assisted Living Centers is Needed?
Assisted living facilities have many options for insurance. It’s vital to discuss your needs with an independent insurance agent so you can get a big picture risk assessment combined with a detailed analysis of the insurance needs that are specific to your senior assisted living center. General types of coverage needed by most assisted living centers include:
- General Liability
- Professional Liability
- Business Auto
- Medical Malpractice
- Directors and Officers Insurance
- Workers Compensation
- Employee Benefits Liability
- Business Owner’s Policy (BOP)
- Commercial Property
- Sexual Misconduct
- Defense Costs (outside of standard coverage limits)
- General Liability (for injuries to non-residents)
- Coverage for Students in Formal Training
- Crime Insurance
- Flood Insurance
- Equipment Breakdown Coverage
These are just the beginning of your potential coverage needs when it comes to organizations such as yours.
