Artifact of Culture Change - Assisted Living/Residential Care
This Artifacts of Culture Change for Assisted Living/Residential Care was originally developed by the Florida Culture Change Coalition through a local grant. MC5 has obtained a copy with our logo. There is a handout version along with the coach version which guides the facilitator in scoring each question. Please see those below.
Care Planning for Resident Choice
The assessment of risk in long-term care is often an unbalanced exercise. In order to optimize opportunities for resident choice; to attain each resident’s highest practicable level of well-being; and to mitigate risk, the Rothschild Foundation has created a task force. This group is charged with developing a care planning process to plan for each resident’s choice when that choice carries potential risk. Please see the documents below for the process.
