  • Culture Change to Reduce Hospitalization Using Person-Centered Care

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 07/30/2013

    Hospitalizations can be a detriment to our residents, impacting their quality of life and resulting in earlier mortality, immobility, or cognitive decline.

Now is the time to seek out partnerships with other providers to provide distance monitoring to support the care provided in assisted living so residents can be cared for and not unnecessarily transferred to a hospital. These interventions can be person-centered and individualized.
