Property Insurance

Property Insurance covers unexpected damage or loss to property. The policy can be purchased to cover both structures and contents, which are separate policies in many cases. Property Insurance covers physical structures, not land. Medical facilities and aged care facilities need property insurance to cover the real property and all fixed items such as furniture, medical equipment, art works and tapestries.

Crime Insurance

Crime Insurance covers the insured party a reimbursement if their property is damaged due to a crime. Crime Insurance usually has a huge range of options and comes in different forms. It can be either a rider that can be attached to the existing insurance policy, or it is available as a completely separate product.

Auto Insurance

Auto insurance is  a type of liability insurance coverage, usually mandated by law, for all mechanically propelled vehicles. It provides protection against losses resulting from traffic accidents and against liability that could also arise therefrom. A medical or aged care facility would typically have auto insurance on their fleet of vehicles as  well as for any vehicles transporting patients to and from the facility.

Fully/Partially Funded insurance

Partially Funded insurance gives facilities the opportunity to pay a set premium for, and then in turn is  partially covered for specific risks.

Fully Funded Insurance allows facilities to pay premiums to have coverage against all risks. In return, if they are unfortunate enough to incur any of the covered loss or injury, they are reimbursed their insurance policy amount.

Excess and umbrella coverage

Excess coverage provides an additional layer of protection over and above what an underlying policy provides. It applies to a single policy only.

An umbrella policy on the other hand, provides additional liability coverage over and above what is provided by a number of underlying policies.

service providers for the elderly and disabled require special insurance coverage

 

Service providers for the elderly and disabled face many challenges in today’s demanding environment. They must be able to cope with the increasing demand for their services. This demand is being driven by the aging population and the increasing number of people with disabilities.

Another challenge faced by service providers is the need to meet the needs of their patients. This includes providing care that meets the physical, mental, and emotional needs of their patients. Service providers must be able to provide care that is tailored to the individual needs of each patient.

When it comes to insurance, service providers for the elderly and disabled must have general liability insurance. This is to protect them from any legal liability that might arise from their provision of care.

As employers they must also have workers’ compensation cover in case one of their employees is injured while working. Depending on the size and location of the organization, there may be other policies required.

By working with The Westwood Insurance Group, you will be able to ensure that your elderly and disabled service providers are properly protected with insurance policies that are best suited to their specific situation.

The challenges faced by service providers for the elderly and disabled are many and varied. However, they can be overcome with the right planning and support.
