Assisted Living Provider Training
Person-Centered Care in Assisted Living: Preparing for the New, Informed Consumer

Tuesday, October 2, 2018
Moore-Norman Technology Center, South Penn Campus, OKC

6 hours of CEU credit available

Description:

There is a lot of talk about “Person-Centered Care” and “Person-Directed Care.” What’s that all about? Is there really a difference between “regular” care and this other approach? YES, there is, and it also applies to those who are living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. These are not just “buzz words” or the “program of the month.” Person-centered care is at the forefront of state and federal regulatory changes, operational best practices, and quality initiatives across the country and worldwide spanning the entire spectrum of long-term care. In fact, person-centered care practices are considered the GOLD STANDARD of care by the Institute of Medicine and can help enhance the lives of elders. This “Culture Change Movement” is essential for the future of aging services, including assisted living. Is your community providing person-centered care? Let’s rethink our thinking about quality of care and wellness and what that looks like in assisted living settings. Are you more like a hospital, a hotel, or a true HOME? We are going to do a real-time honest assessment of where you, your organization and program are now and come up with a true “baseline” from which to work. We will explore how we can integrate the Domains of Well-Being into everything we do to improve quality of life for residents, families, and all on the care partner team. You will leave with new knowledge, practical tools, tips, skills, guidance and a plan that you can immediately implement with your team.

Presenters

Kim McRae is a nationally known educator and advocate for those living with dementia. She champions humanizing dementia care, person-centered living and culture change in long term care.

Mary Brinkley, Executive Director of LeadingAge Oklahoma.
