A Process for Care Planning for Resident Choice

From the Rothschild Person-Centered Care Planning Task Force.

The purpose of the Rothschild Person-Centered Care Planning process is to support Long-term care communities in their efforts to honor residentsí choices that influence quality of care and quality of life, while mitigating potential risks associated with those choices. This process is specifically aimed at care planning when the choice carries sufficient risk, perhaps related to impaired cognition and inadequate decision-making capacity, and the community is considering not honoring the residentís wishes. Following the Rothschild Person-Centered Care Planning process will help the community work with the resident to understand and respect choices to the greatest extent possible, in line with CMS regulations.

Rothschild Grab Bar Final Report

 

The purpose of this project is to identify, both objectively and subjectively, the spatial and configurational dimensions of grab-bars that effectively support both independent standing and one- and two-person assisted toilet transfers of older adults living in senior housing. This study is focused both on seniors who can bear weight and can independently stand to transfer, and seniors with a variety of abilities who require one- or two-person assisted transfers. The results of the four-part research can be found here.
