The assisted living (AL) setting is subject to multiple transitional care points. Each transition is an opportunity for a collaborative, multidisciplinary process. Of course, this can only occur with careful planning at both ends of the transition. For this process to be successful, a coordinated system involving several members of the multidisciplinary team is required. One important component of ensuring a successful process is open, regular communication with all the critical channels. By having a point person in the AL facility serve as the liaison and educator between each channel, a successful transitional care process can be achieved.
