Tuesday, September 1st (Session C2) - Slam the Door on Institution (and COVID by the way...)

Session C2

Household organizations are best suited to offer a drastically different living experience than the typical long-term care institution.  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 within an intimate group of householders and team members. The household model, a more self-directed option for residential living, has shown that the elders that they serve don’t get as sick,  regain skills, and maintain relationships all within the comfort of home as they define it. They are also  ideal for preventing spread of infection and even COVID. Households also have a fully functioning kitchen and a large pantry that could accommodate a week's food. Couple all of the physical amenities 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!

1. Describe attributes of Households that support person-directed life and work.
2. Detail outcomes of household life and work that both create good life and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
3. List ways organizations can enhance or begin changes toward the self-direction and outcomes of households.
