NASHVILLE, Tenn. , Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookdale Senior Living has published a new article examining changes the company made during the COVID-19 pandemic. The article, A Matter of Life: How the Nation's Largest Senior Living Provider Adapted to COVID-19 , takes a look at protocols and programs Brookdale developed in its work to help keep residents, patients and associates safe and engaged during unprecedented times. The article includes links to video interviews with functional leaders throughout the company who explain why such changes were necessary.

Brookdale Senior Living has taken innovative steps in an effort to try to protect residents from COVID-19.

"At Brookdale, we've never questioned our priorities. We've always taken steps to protect our residents, patients, and associates as a top priority," said Brookdale President and CEO Cindy Baier . "The COVID-19 pandemic just put a spotlight on that, as we've taken enormous strides forward. At lightning speed, we've built upon our 40-plus years of experience to improve how we do things and to accelerate change so we can keep our residents, patients, and associates as safe and comfortable as possible. These changes are getting us through these really difficult times now, and will serve us in good stead as we move forward, operating in a world in which COVID-19 exists. " Baier added, "I am extremely proud of our thousands of associates and deeply grateful for their dedication, which focuses on what matters most."
