"Walk a Mile"
Presented by Teressa Leeds, RN from The Living Center in Marshall, MO
The “Walk a Mile” program was developed to give staff the opportunity to “walk a mile in residents’ shoes” in order to improve caregiver sensitivity. Beginning in March 2014, CNA students, new staff and now current staff of the Living Center in Marshall, MO, have spent a day living the life of a long-term care resident. This presentation will highlight some of the lessons learned by staff in such an experience. The information also will assist participants in creating their own “Walk a Mile” program. Staff surveyors recently complimented the Living Center on the impact that is evident in the staff as a result of this program.
