The staffing crisis remains a significant concern across the senior living sector, with many communities grappling with the dual challenges of maintaining a dedicated workforce and ensuring high-quality resident care. BloomTrak recognizes the importance of technology in alleviating these pressures, providing tools that not only streamline operations but also improve the work environment for caregivers.
