Lunch with Mom n’ Dad: Building Relationships with Elders and Their Families
Most people come into long-term care wanting to stay connected to their family, friends, and community. If organizations are truly “person-centered” they will encourage these relationships by including family members as part of the care team and foster new relationships with staff and other residents. Mealtimes offer the perfect opportunity to build upon these relationships.
Culture change research continues to uncover the centrality of dining to building community. Still, many long-term care organizations struggle to create dining experiences elders crave.
To provide person-centered care, we have to ensure that our staff is well-connected to the residents and their family members. These strong connections nurture relationships between staff and residents, help staff get to know residents as unique individuals, and help staff understand the choices and preferences most important to residents.
