Culture Change Best Practices
The term “Culture Change” has found growing recognition in the
eldercare community over the last eight years. The basis of the Culture Change
is that of transforming eldercare providers from their traditional medical
model of care to a social model, where residents are known by their uniqueness
first, and by their diagnosis second. The philosophy is finding growing favor
among eldercare professionals across the country who have historically been
unhappy with the current systems in place to care for elders.
Our goal here is to provide you with a sampling of what we consider to be
among “Best Practices” in Cultural Transformation. You'll find
these explanations brief. For more in-depth exploration of
practices, be it an expanded written explanation, on-site consultation or a
full-day of in-depth exploration in the form of a conference, you can reach
us via email or by calling
the Institute at 717-263-7766.
