    In-Service Kit: "Using Resident Profiles for Person-centered Care"


    This ready-to-teach in-service package includes all the pieces needed to teach a 25-minute in-service.

    In-Service Topic "Using Resident Profiles for Person-centered Care"
    Contrary to the traditional methods of nursing home care, person-centered care is essential to resident satisfaction of life and is now being mandated by CMS. Residents who must adjust themselves to caregivers’ schedules and fit themselves into a lifestyle that does not put their needs and desires first (i.e., the traditional model) are more likely to be depressed, behavioral, and ill. This in-service lays out strategies for using resident profiles to allow residents to maintain choice and independence, and banish depression. Caregivers will learn the following topics:

    • The difference between traditional and person-centered care
    • Scenarios that increase empathy for residents and stress the importance of choice
    • How to use profiles to document personal history, lifestyle preferences, and hobbies
    • Implementing profiles for programs, interventions, and care plans
    • How to use a team approach for implementing profiles

    This in-service is a downloadable zip file and includes:

    • Access to watch recorded video (internet access required)
