Finance & Budgeting Made Simple for Senior Living Administrators

Brian Garavaglia, PhD

Assisted living facilities must focus on quality and exercise prudent expense management to achieve sustainable profit margins if they hope to stave off competition and remain profitable.

However, many individuals entering a leadership position are faced with managing a business budget and have limited or no formal training in accounting, finance, budgeting, or statistics.

Finance & Budgeting Made Simple for Senior Living Administrators will provide readers with the financial and decision-making skills they need to achieve quality and compliance on dwindling profit margins.

After reading this book, readers will be able to:

  • Apply important financial and budgetary principles to address current cost issues, adequately manage the organization’s finances and anticipate future capital-based needs
  • Understand how to calculate per client days to provide a detailed interpretation of the daily budget and monitor costs
  • Identify the core concepts of analytics to measure the organization’s status in a streamlined fashion
  • Apply real-world examples and case studies that illustrate effective finance and budgeting management
