RESIDENT TELEPHONE SERVICE APPLICATION FOR THE CONTINUUM OF CARE INDUSTRY
Presently residents at many Continuum of Care organizations are paying for their own telephone service or services, whether it is their local telephone line, or DSL data service. For many of them it is a confusing and expensive proposition and they are often times ready targets for predators who try to take advantage of them.
You as their Care organization often times have to get involved in either placing orders for them, helping untangle billing problems, or arranging for access to their room or residence for the telephone company. Some organizations even pay to have their residents telephone service installed and or moved.
Normally, this is done as a service to your resident which you donít charge for. What if you could provide your residents better service, save them money, reduce and stream line your involvement in making changes to their telephone service, and turn it into a revenue producing opportunity as well.
There are many organizations like yours that are doing just that!!
By installing the right kind of telephone system and service, and following a careful plan for implementing the needed services and educating your staff and your residents as to what you are doing every step of the way, you can achieve all of these goals and more. Depending on what type of telephone equipment you have and how old it is you may not even need to replace your system, but even if you do, if your facility has 150 residents or more you can have this application in place with less than a 4 year payback.
