December 13, 2018: The Process Behind the Passion: How Your Care Community Can Support Person-Directed Care
Guides: Lisa Rill, PhD, Claude Pepper Center at Florida State University and Lori Gonzalez, PhD, Claude Pepper Center at Florida State University
Person-directed care is an essential goal for long-term care change agents. Decades of reform have led to some changes. However, there is still work to be done. This session presents the findings of a comparison of environment and practices between a traditional nursing home to a Green House home. The findings elucidate the importance of creating environments, practices and policies, and staffing that are intentionally designed for elders and their care partners. We will conclude by offering best practices that can be applied to any care setting and assist with starting a plan for change with the participants of the session.
