This session will review the best practices with the resident assessments and show participants how capturing resident care and treatment in the MDS helps assure us that resident s needs are being met and that a facility is receiving the maximum reimbursement available. Assessment, treatment, and quality measures all tie together to the reimbursement process. State and Federal Reimbursement Programs in AL/Senior Housing Services - Disciplines: ADM, ALMC Panel members: Jeanine Chartier, Stacy Hejda, Christy Hofsaess With more than half of Iowa s seniors 75 and older having incomes less than $25,000 per year, many do not have access to assisted living as a long term care option.

Treat an employee with respect and place them in positions in which they can improve their self-esteem and you could very well have an employee for the rest of their working life.

Transformational Small Groups: When We are Doing Something We Love, It Transforms Us Disciplines: AP, ADM, ALMC Instructor: Jan Nelson, President, Center for Courageous Aging The last time we did everything in a group of 30 sitting in a circle was in kindergarten. Why do we expect residents to like it and respond? Our lives and their lives have been made up of individual or small groups of friends with common interests doing things that they love. Putting the normal settings back into resident lives with small interest groups helps form community, creates ways for small groups to do the things that only 2-5 residents may enjoy and allows for more situations where we give control back to the residents. So from your readers, to woodworkers, coin collectors, actors, military and any other interests your residents may have, we ll find ways to transform residents.
