    As the long-term care demographics continue to shift and diversify, the greater the need to understand people as individuals. Achieving such understanding presents new challenges and considerations in assessment and care planning. While long-term care facilities once cared almost exclusively for the frail elderly, many of whom had also been diagnosed with dementia, today’s populations are far more varied in age, disability, and psychosocial circumstances. That makes understanding “what makes someone tick” more complicated, at best. This session provides professional caregivers a framework for developing an assessment process that results in a deeper understanding of what motivates someone to do what they do. With greater understanding comes a more focused, personalized plan to accommodate the complicated needs of every individual.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the concept of culture change and the expectations of regulators and consumers with regard to applying these principles;
    2. Develop a keener insight into human behavior and be able to apply that knowledge in creating an environment in which everyone thrives;
    3. Create person-centered, innovative interventions as alternatives to pharmacologic remedies in response to the behavioral health needs of residents with dementia;

    Speaker: Barbara Speedling, Quality of Life Specialist

    • Encourage staffers to use newly developed cultural empathy to form better relationships with those in their care
    • Offer new strategies for promoting harmony among increasingly diverse, younger and assertive populations
    • Open new pathways to maintaining regulatory compliance

    In a random audit conducted by AHCA of LTC Surveys throughout the United States there were several common areas being cited under F812 (Food safety requirements for food procurement, storage, preparation, distribution and service in accordance with professional standards.)

    A series of three videos has been developed to provide an overview of these areas along with “Best Practice” resources to assist providers in regulatory compliance and overall safe food practices.

    • Video 1: Egg Safety for Highly Susceptible Populations
    • Video 2: Labeling/dating of foods; food temperatures and sanitizing.
    • Video 3: Proper hand washing /glove usage and requirements for reporting of communicable diseases for staff carrying out the functions of food and nutrition services.

    After viewing the content of each of the webinars attendees will be able to:

    • Understand the regulatory requirements for the commonly cited areas.
    • Describe the US Food Code “Best Practice” recommendations.
    • Identify resources to assist with staff with needed skills, knowledge and competencies.
