  • October 20, 2016:  Family Matters: Creating Person-Centered Care Partners
  • Presenters:  Stephanie Gfeller, Long-Term Care Program Coordinator, Kansas State University Center on Aging and Judy Miller, Project Consultant, PEAK 2.0, Kansas State University

Many discussions about person-centered care that include the family of residents are focused on the challenges of working with family members or how they stand in the way of person-centered care. Not this one! This webinar will explore the importance of creating person-centered care partners out of the residents’ family members. The barriers that make this relationship difficult and solutions for overcoming those will be discussed. Individualized care plans and acceptance of risk are critical pieces of person-centered care and you will learn how family partners can be an integral part of these processes.
