Chief Future Officer Andrew Salmon Featured in Senior Housing News

SALMON Health and Retirement provides a Continuum of Care, an initiative dedicated to meeting the changing needs of our Residents from The Willows independent living community to the Whitney Place assisted living community.

Andrew Salmon, Chief Future Officer of SALMON Health and Retirement, leads our growth strategy with Residents’ unique needs in mind. In a recent interview with Austin Montgomery from Senior Housing News, Andrew shared that our community is “focused on options that meet people where they’re at — and we never want to force people into what we have.” Andrew’s commitment to continuous progress encapsulates SALMON Health and Retirement’s promise of the Continuum of Care. 

“As the industry changes, how do we change with it?” Andrew asked. The industry-wide shift from care-first to hospitality reflects Andrew’s growth mindset. Our expanding resources for diversified care demonstrates our evolution as a previously predominantly skilled nursing community.

SALMON Health and Retirement has introduced Enhanced Care Neighborhoods in three of our communities.

Andrew shared that this program offers the unique opportunity to deliver a solution for a “desire for advanced care within a comfortable, homelike setting that didn’t feel overwhelmingly institutional.” Some services of this program include around-the-clock emergency response, some medication administration, support with some activities of daily living and certain clinical care if needed, all while living in private residential apartments. To further meet the increasing demand for support in a comfortable setting, SALMON Health and Retirement offers home care across 58 towns in Central Massachusetts.  

Andrew understands the value of community connections and is looking for opportunities to partner with local organizations.

“If we can really get creative and connect on how to solve problems locally, we can meet our clients where they are at,” Salmon added. “It’s about asking how we can keep people where they want to be and not move them up the continuum too soon or too quickly.”

Continuing to look forward, Andrew is creating scholarship opportunities for young people who are curious about careers in senior living.
