Purpose: Culture change – Person-centered care. Terms we have all heard and which most of us use every day – they’re even in the regulations- but what do they really mean? What does it take to transform and more importantly, to sustain a person-centered culture? In this interactive workshop, we’ll go back to the basics, and together reexamine just what is needed to transform a culture in a nursing home or assisted living community. We’ll then take a deep dive, examining the personal transformations that take place, first, by exploring what leadership looks like in a transformed culture, and then exploring the traditional roles of the administrator, DON, CNA and activity director, and how they change and evolve in order to support a transformed culture.
