Moving from your home of 30+ years into a life plan community has its struggles but the team at Arcadia Family of Companies strives to make it easy and as stress-free as possible for every family. President and CEO Suzie Schulberg and chief financial officer Vivian Lai are focused on making senior living active and fun for every resident they serve.
As a company comprised of seven non-profit entities that serves 1,000 kupuna each day, Schulberg says the priority for the year is employee recruitment. Working with kupuna takes special people who are driven by a desire to serve others and provide the highest quality of care. The work their employees do every day is both a responsibility and a privilege, filled with challenges and heart-felt moments. The Arcadia Family of Companies is committed to building positive relationships with their employees through communication and engagement. By providing feedback, training sessions, and support, the company is able to better their leadership team and all of their employees.
Chief Financial Officer Vivian Lai is responsible for maintaining the financial strength of all seven companies by having strong census numbers. She also reviews and approves the applications for residency into 15 Craigside and Arcadia along with membership into their Arcadia At Home program. The Arcadia Family of Companies recognizes that many older adults prefer to age at home. With that in mind, the company continues to provide home and community based services so that they can meet those wishes through both Arcadia At Home and the Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health.
The approval process for 15 Craigside, Arcadia, and Arcadia At Home allows the company to determine if a resident or member will have enough assets to live out their life expectancy and afford medical services as they age. They want residents and members to be able to take part in all that they did while living at home.
