Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? It is a global day of charity, fueled by social media, non-profits and generous hearts around the world. This year, Giving Tuesday is December 1st and Pioneer Network is asking you to invest in excellence in care for America's elders, e.g, that may be your Mother or Father, your Aunt or Uncle, your spouse, your friend, your neighbor today, and yourself tomorrow. We are asking you to make your Giving Tuesday contribution to our scholarship fund which supports nursing assistants and other direct care workers to attend the 2016 Pioneer Network conference. This highly regarded annual event teaches caregivers the values, principles, skills and systems of providing individualized care – that is, how to support people in living a life that is satisfying, life-affirming and meaningful wherever they may reside.  CLICK HERE TO DONATE

A Process for 
Care Planning for Resident Choice

The Rothschild Person-Centered Care Planning process is to support long term care communities in their efforts to honor residents' 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 resident's 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. DOWNLOAD PDF
