You can join the conversation by asking questions of Carmen and her guests. Carmen's smart look at culture change focuses on a wide variety of topics. She brings an insider's view of regulations, and reports on little changes happening in government, in attitude, in practice. Each month she shares culture change news and updates, amusing and heartwarming stories, and usually interviews a guest on a relevant and timely topic.

Household model organizations are best suited to Stay At Home practices.  Typical skilled nursing households have a front door that can literally be closed to all who do not live or work in the household. They have private rooms, and multiple rooms in the living center (often a living room and a formal lounge, a den, a sun porch, family dining room, private back yard) - all can contribute to the continuation of a good life!  Households have a fully functioning kitchen and a large pantry that could accommodate a week's food.  Couple that with the practices of cross-trained consistent staff (including a house nurse), self-led team skills and strong critical thinking skills!  And wonderfully, these self-sufficient households are surrounded by all the resources they will need close at hand, and yet able to be kept at arms' length!

What can your organization do to move closer to this ideal?   Creativity, enthusiasm, upbeat attitude strong action planning, and an empowered resident, staff, family community can make this happen.  Get started NOW!


As always, when you pay and register for the webinar, you will be able to attend the live show and/or watch the recorded show. Learn at your convenience!
