We hope you all enjoyed the Fourth of July holiday!
This week, we’re sharing a contest idea that Abbi, the Life Enrichment Director at Bridges by EPOCH in Westford, MA, is working on. Her plan is to have each CNA pick a resident to work with on Function Focused Care, and then she will work with the CNAs to create a detailed individual care plan for daily care. She will monitor staff and award points throughout the day when she observes FFC, with extra points for creativity and enthusiasm. They will also get points for each resident they work with using a Function Focused Care approach. We wish good luck to Abbi and her staff at Bridges by EPOCH. Please let us know how it goes!
Do you have a contest idea you’d like to try in your community to encourage Function Focused Care? If so, email us and let us know. We’ll mention it in a tidbit. Many minds sharing great ideas benefits all of us, as we work together to help our older adults remain as functional, independent and happy as possible!
