Senior Care & Living

Change across the healthcare continuum is ongoing, and the move to value-based care is a given. Decreased occupancy and third-party payments coupled with increased acuity of residents can burden even the most established senior care and living providers. We can help.

Our audit, tax, and consulting professionals have a deep understanding of the risks, trends, and growth strategies impacting senior care and living providers today. When you’ve served the senior care and living industry for several decades, you gain perspective and insight. Our clients benefit from our experience serving nearly 1,000 senior care and living providers — skilled nursing facilities, continuing care retirement communities, independent and assisted living facilities, and home health and hospice agencies.

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.
