As far as senior living is concerned, it’s time to start planning ahead. At first, some senior living owners and operators may find that difficult, as the future of the industry tends to be a little foggy, according to Chris Frommell, managing partner at Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based senior living development services firm Direct Supply Aptura.
Months after stating that something new was in store, Five Star Senior Living Inc. (Nasdaq: FVE) has officially laid the groundwork to expand its ancillary services beyond the walls of Five Star communities. The Newton, Massachusetts-based senior living provider has rebranded its rehabilitation and wellness division as Ageility Physical Therapy Solutions—a move that’s meant to ease the division’s expansion into communities run by providers other than Five Star.
Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE: BKD) is the target of what might be the first-ever class action lawsuit against an assisted living provider brought under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The lawsuit, filed July 13 in U.S. District Court in California, accuses the nation’s largest senior housing provider of violating the ADA, as well as committing financial abuse. The lawsuit was brought by four seniors currently living in Brookdale communities in California.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
