What is the care staff-to-resident ratio at The Meridian at Boca Raton during daytime and nighttime hours?
We have a new concept here that sets us apart from our competition, and that is: we are "blended", meaning we have residents here who are Supportive Independent Living and residents that are Assisted Care. So, our ratio here is based on personal needs. If a resident requires care they will have their own personalized care. We feel this blended concept makes it better for the long term as someone would not need to move again as care needs arise.
