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.

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.
