This experience has brought her the knowledge of providing a better care for the elderly who suffer from these chronic diseases.  She assists the residents' health professionals and their families to form a care coalition for providing the ultimate care and health support for the aged or frailed residents of the facility,


BSH has one of the lowest rates of staff turn-over. As our direct care-givers are well trained by our Administrator for a long time, they communicate with and assist the Administrator effectively about the well-being of the residents at all time.  On the other hand, since the residents do not see different faces every often, they are less confused and feel more secure. In addition, we have a 1/3 ratio of worker/residents which again generates more security among our residents.
