Last week long-term care organizations around the country were celebrating National Nursing Home Week with a theme of “Team Care”. At Action Pact, we think every week is a week we should be concentrating on our teamwork. We have always said that it takes involvement from everyone in the nursing home to change its culture and the work of a team of caregivers to create home on a daily basis for and with elders. That is why in the Household Model decisions are made by the household team and not in departmental silos.
We’ve created a podcast for you to hear more about this philosophy and how it works in real nursing homes across the country. We think it is kind of fun, especially since it features participants from our Choreography of Culture Change intensive sharing their stories.
