When it comes to the weaknesses of the organization, first, there is a slight shortage of personnel since the organization has had a good reputation which has made it acquire a huge increase in the number of participants hence the participant to personnel ratio is a bit off, there has also been a weakness in the hospitalization and nursing home care department and lastly there has been a weakness in the continence management area.

The jobs that are given to the caregivers, physicians and other personnel members are really a good for the organization to give back to the community.
The threats affecting the organization include the certification of the organization’s facility by the state which is often a problem, especially when it is time for renewal, its services are also not accessible for all members but for only those members that are eligible and in conclusion, there is the fact that the organization also engages in other programs that often bring about an overload of activities which serves as a threat to the organization’s operations.
