The the sponsor should seek a clear answer as to whether they will be told what is necessary r they will be fed with the information that they want. That will mean that they will not be told the true position, but they will be fed with the information in line with what they need to hear.
There is nothing as fulfilling as having a partner who will help you in everything and who is willing to tell you the truth. You would also like to know whether you are dealing a company that is well prepared to deal with the management issues. You should know whether the company is prepared with enough nurses to ensure they give the necessary care to the members. The members may be leaving hospital who need special care and medical attention.
You should also be willing to know whether the company is willing and prepared to provide full-service solution for seniors. You need to know whether the company will offer the seniors facilities that will enable them to get all the services that they need from a one-stop option. Not all the companies that offer senior living can provide all the necessary services to the members. You need to know whether your company can offer all-round services to all the senior members.
The other important question to ask is about the planning. Your concern should be whether the company has the best approach and strategic planning.

For you to be in control of the institution, to have to get the right information and data that will inform you all the things that you may need to know.
You should seek to know how well the company understands the nature of the changing senior members. What is vital is to know whether the company you are partnering with understands what matters most to the seniors. Yu should make sure you have the seniors participate in the governance process. You also need to ensure that you maintain a healthy relationship. The healthy relationship has to start with the company and the sponsors and then goes to the members of the senior living community. The relationship should also be extended to the members of the family of the residents and the institution.
