July 21, 2016: The Benefits of Household Dining; Maxinizing Choice and Relationships in this Pleasure of Daily Life
Location: The Piper Assisted Living and Memory Care, Kansas City, KS
Presenter: Linda Bump
So, does dining really matter anymore? Have we already done as much as we can in changing dining to be more resident directed? Why must we continue to move our systems forward in honoring resident choice in dining and in creating relationship-based dining service systems?
There are many reasons:
- Because our residents are demanding it
- Because our residents deserve it
- Because CMS is advocating for increasing change
- Because we CAN, and simply
- Because it is the right thing to do!
Participants will explore each topic (see agenda) through lively discussion, the experiences of staff and residents pioneering work and personal exercises. Using the guidance and challenges of the New Dining Practice Standards to guide our thought from Mazlov’s early work to creating The Kitchen as a Great Good Place in our residents’ lives, participants will leave feeling prepared to meet the challenges ahead in maximizing dining as a pleasure of their residents’ lives.
