Portsmouth, NH, February 21, 2018— Wentworth Senior Living, a nonprofit senior living community well known in Portsmouth for more than 100 years, has launched AvailabilityNow.org, a website designed to streamline the search process when looking for available space for seacoast seniors in need of a supported residential healthcare environment.
When a loved one would benefit from living under supervised care, healthcare providers, family members and other caregivers can access the AvailabilityNow.org website for an accurate listing of openings at local facilities. The provider can indicate which services are needed within the search criteria, and then specify if the senior is in need of assisted living, memory care, a nursing home, rehabilitation, or independent living. Updated in real time, the website will quickly and accurately reveal which senior living facilities are accepting new admissions. Links to provider’s websites with contact information are embedded in the search results.
With America’s aging population doubling over the next 15 to 20 years and 5.4 million people currently suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, Wentworth Senior Living recognizes the imminent need to provide a community resource for those who need assistance. A hospital discharge manager or a primary care physician, along with the public can use this referral tool to locate an available facility, rather than spending countless hours making tedious phone calls.
“This new website fits with our vision of being an active community partner who cares about the lives of Seacoast area seniors and their caregivers,” said William Henson, president and CEO at Wentworth Senior Living. “We understand that this process can be difficult and taxing. This website, which is free to use, will accelerate the process of finding the right fit for your loved one in a healthcare situation where time may be of the essence.”
If a primary care doctor or hospital discharge manager needs senior living options for your loved one, please urge them to utilize AvailabilityNow.org to help expedite the selection process. If you are a senior looking for yourself or a family caregiver or friend, you can also access this website.
The following Seacoast senior living facilities have elected to participate: Wentworth Senior Living, the developer and sponsor of the website, (Portsmouth, NH), Oceanside Rehab and Skilled Nursing (Hampton, NH), Partridge House (Hampton, NH), Clipper Harbor (Portsmouth, NH), The Inn at Edgewood (Portsmouth, NH), Sentry Hill (York, ME), Durgin Pines (Kittery, ME), and Evolve at Rye (Rye, NH).
