Preserving resident's quality of life has become a priority in long term care facilities across the country - a priority equal to the need to provide outstanding quality of health care. Federal regulations demand and your own experience undoubtedly confirms that quality of life is a crucial ingredient in a resident's overall emotional and physical health. Yet new and experienced staff members alike are often confused about precisely what quality of life means and how they can make a positive impact on a daily basis.
Now there's a video-based program, developed specifically for the long-term care industry, which helps staff members make the connection between resident quality of life and their own care-giving behaviors. Now every member of your staff can learn how to:
- Relate to residents as unique individuals who have meaningful life histories
- Recognize how well-meaning staff behaviors can unintentionally diminish quality of life
- Discover the key components which contribute to quality of life
- Identify care-giving practices which enhance quality of life
- Improve their interpersonal effectiveness with every resident
"Promoting Quality of Life: An Introduction" is filled with relevant examples and role-modeling vignettes, so it's easy for staff members to understand practice applications for the quality of life philosophy. What's more, staff members from all departments are highlighted in the program to underscore that enhancing quality of life is everyone's responsibility.
In just twenty minutes your personnel will receive a thorough, targeted and practical overview of quality of life in long term care. The accompanying facilitators' guide will help you present a participative learning session and even design follow-up assignments for applying new learning to the job.
Here's a program that can help you make your facility an even better place to live and work.
