In January, the Florida Nursing Homes Association and the American Association of Lactation Consultants teamed up to create the Carillon Nursing Home Registry, a database that will help caregivers of the world’s largest nursing homes get access to care for their patients.
The registry is being developed to help hospitals, nursing homes and other nursing homes identify and contact people who need assistance to help with their care.
“With the Carilion Registry, we want to be able to help those nursing homes in need, whether they’re looking for help in finding a care provider or finding a caregiver, to connect to a care facility and find out what they’re facing,” said Carol Brown, president of the Florida nursing homes association.
Carillon Nursing Homes are in a desperate situation.
They have about 5,000 nursing homes across the country and many have closed in recent years.
Many of those nursing home residents are now living at nursing homes they’ve lived in for years.
Some nursing homes are already facing financial issues and are unable to continue providing care.
Others are struggling financially as the number of nursing homes on the market has shrunk.
One of the biggest challenges nursing homes have is finding people to take care of their residents, according to Brown.
