Program Description:
Person-centered engagement is an overlapping theme in the new CMS requirements of participation, which began in the fall of 2016 and will wrap up in November of this year. Do you have a clear understanding of how these changes impact the work that you do with residents every day? This workshop was created to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to ensure compliance with new regulations and, more importantly, engage with residents through meaningful, individualized, person-centered activity programming. Topics for discussion include regulatory overview, resident rights, meeting the physical and cognitive needs of residents, behavioral health requirements, person-centered engagement toolkit, and more. You will receive sample program schedules for residents with varying levels of cognition, learn how to create multilevel programs without adding more staff, discover how to use the non-pharmacological person-centered toolkit to address behavioral expressions, and discuss what’s needed to deliver exceptional care
