Culture Change in Long Term Care:"Not Your Grandmother's Nursing Home"
This workshop defines and explores the growing culture change movement that is working to transform our institutional based, hierarchical managed nursing facilities, into resident directed, team managed, community based homes. The many aspects of culture change are discussed, from architectural and environmental, to dining, activities, family involvement and resident choice in care schedules. Examples of nursing homes that have embarked on this journey will be presented and discussed, along with research based outcomes of transformed nursing homes, and tools for incorporating and measuring culture change in existing nursing homes.
