We all love our jobs and our residents, but along with this love comes paperwork…and lots of it. Activity charting is a part of all of our routines and without a medical background it can be an overwhelming task deciphering all the terms. This workshop is designed to arm you with the information necessary to read the information provided and offer the best possible assessment for your resident’s quality of life.
The "Person Centered" activities focus is changing the way State Surveyors will be grading facilities for compliance. This huge shift in the federal regulations towards a more personalized program indicates the importance of reorganizing our current programs to meet the standards set forth by these changes. The Activity Department as well as the entire facility will be expected to participate as a team to create a more life-style friendly, community care facility. These new revisions are meant to bring about an imminent change in the way we care for our elderly. They are designed to improve the transition from home life to facility life, with less negative outcomes and side effects. Additionally, they will help accommodate the increasing number of residents from varied cultures entering the healthcare system. The Baby Boomer Generation is fast approaching and our adaptability to the results of this influx is of great importance. It will become more and more complex to create activity programs for a growing number of residents without causing undue stress on the facility and its employees. This workshop is meant to alleviate any confusion surrounding the updates to these federal regulations and offer guided solutions to meeting and exceeding the new criteria.
