The cornerstone of The 360 System suite of services are the Premier Level consulting packages for Assisted Living/Memory Care and Memory Care stand-alone communities.

360 System®with Tagline

Premier Level clients receive access to The 360 System’s dynamic playbook, a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind industry manual that features instructional chapters for every functional department within an assisted living and/or memory care long-term living environment. When implemented properly, this TEAM approach positively impacts resident and family satisfaction as well as staff retention and job enjoyment. Additionally, it’s a tangible sales differential for today’s savvy consumers who expect a coordinated game plan that delivers championship-level services to their loved ones.

The Guiding Principles of the TEAM™ Approach are:

  • Inclusivity   
  • Relationship-Based Care   
  • Culture of Cooperation

The Guiding Principles are infused into every chapter within the Playbook. Starting with the interview & on-boarding process and from the front-of-house- to the back; each team member within the community understands the vision of The 360 System and how to execute the gameplan from their position on the TEAM.™

To achieve Championship Level outcomes, the departmental silos are shattered and the disconnect between the assisted living and memory support sides of the community is mended. The playbook features terms like:

  • Culinary care 
  • Wellness principles  
  • Eliminating divisive mindsets 
  • Committed experts in care
