East Central Region
“Through the Looking Glass: Caregivers’ Experience as Residents”
Presented by Leslie King-Pedtke, Administrator of Aviston Countryside Manor
In a move to close the gap between residents and caregivers, Leslie introduced her long-term care community to a contest called “Through the Looking Glass.” The contest is open to all caregivers, and the participants are required to stay at the nursing home as residents. They sleep in the same rooms, eat the same foods, and endure simulated physical and mental challenges similar to those long-term care community residents experience. The program has transformed the caregivers and improved the lives of residents. Long-term care administrators will benefit from hearing about this innovative program which could improve the lives of those who live and work in their communities.
