A full-service approach that’s beyond the expected

Change across the healthcare continuum, especially within the senior care and living sector, poses both opportunities and challenges for providers. The skilled nursing industry has continued to take steps toward rewarding value over volume, as seen in the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) for Medicare reimbursement. The need to understand and control costs remains a top priority, and decreased occupancy and the increased acuity of residents can burden even the most established senior care and living providers. We can help. 

We’ve served the senior care and living industry for decades, and we currently serve more than 1,200 senior care and living providers, including skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), continuing care retirement communities, independent and assisted living facilities, and home health and hospice agencies. Through this wide range of experience, our experts have achieved a deep understanding of the risks, trends, and growth strategies impacting senior care and living providers today.

Besides our expertise, what sets our team apart is our full-service approach. We’re the only firm in the country that can bring robust senior living development capabilities — through our Plante Moran Living Forward™ team — in conjunction with audit, tax, reimbursement, strategic planning, and operational consulting capabilities. We’re ready to be your go-to financial and strategic advisor.

Respected expertise wherever the future takes you

Our professionals have dedicated their careers to serving the senior care and living industry. As partners, we can help you solve complex issues, formulate innovative strategies, and prepare for change. We’ll bring a strategic lens to support your long-term goals.

Our industry involvement also expands beyond the clients we serve. As nationally recognized healthcare thought leaders, we share insights with the country’s most respected providers and industry groups, present at the conferences you never miss, and contribute to the publications you trust, such as McKnight’s, Skilled Nursing News, and Senior Housing News. We’re also one of only 14 firms represented on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Health Care Expert Panel.

While each of our client relationships with senior care providers is unique, they all have a valuable quality in common: a strong focus on the future. According to our senior care and living practice leader, Betsy Rust, “It’s difficult to have foresight for the future when you’re busy coping with today’s concerns. On the other hand, there are reputational and financial risks to falling behind. We’re not here just to solve today’s issues; we’re here to help you position your organization for success in the future healthcare landscape.”

Our clients say

Our expectations for first year financial audit and cost reports were more than exceeded. The team was exceptionally prepared with detailed schedules and great communication. Their healthcare experience was invaluable, and because they were so efficient and knowledgeable, we finished one week ahead of schedule. We chose Plante Moran because of their entrenchment in the Chicago area and we were looking for a strategic partner that could provide us additional services and expertise to help us reach our future goals. I feel confident in our future with Plante Moran as our partners.
