Mystery Shops

What are the real first impressions of family members who tour your campus? Most unsuccessful leads won’t share this important feedback, and responsible parties of new residents typically aren’t candid about their tour experience.

Since 2001, CLTC has conducted over 7,000 senior housing mystery shops throughout the country. Our in-depth telephone calls and website visits, with real-time online reports, reveal your strongest selling points, plus expose vulnerabilities that impede move-ins.

CLTC’s mystery shoppers are vetted, trained and empowered to document key details and collect pertinent materials.

Employee & Customer Satisfaction Surveys

One of the best returns on investment for unbiased input is a brief annual telephone interview of responsible parties and your employees, with web-based data entry and real-time reporting. Operators generally know their residents’ and employees’ general preferences, but they aren’t aware of other underlying concerns and embedded perceptions.

These interviews typically last five minutes or less, by design, and at least 50% participation provides solid statistical findings.
