Person Centered Care:
Our centers strive to give decision-making directly to our residents and their support partners while integrating all aspects of daily life in which residents can truly thrive and grow as individuals.
Person-centered care refers to the practice of basing key daily care decisions on individual preferences. Each MacIntosh center has a committee of personnel and residents that routinely meet to discuss our programming and where they would like to see us expand. We believe that embracing a resident-centered model of long-term care changes the atmosphere for both residents and staff, which makes our centers better places to work and to live. We have established center specific core programs of:
- Permanent staffing assignments
- Dining services: improved dining experience with healthy options readily available
- Bathing choice: each resident chooses the time of day and frequency of their bathing
- Natural rising: each resident wakes in the morning when they choose.
- Restful nights
- Bereavement recognition
- Neighborhood naming: The majority of our centers have chosen to embrace the idea of naming long term care areas within their center and identifying them as neighborhoods. The idea of naming each neighborhood is to create an additional sense community.
