Staff and elders at Signature HealthCARE of Monroe County are celebrating this week. They achieved the industry milestone of being added to the Eden Alternative Registry.
Though slogans, such as patient centered care, clutter healthcare companies, person-directed care is an approach and mindset that everyone, from the nursing home administrator to each CNA, must adopt to achieve Eden-Alternative Certification. Person-directed care says that each person’s individual desires and needs are considered in their health care decisions.
“It is exciting to seeSignature HealthCARE of Monroe County be added to the Eden Alternative Registry. This milestone is the beginning of their commitment to person-directed care, which honors individual preferences and needs of each of our elders,” Angie McAllister, Director of Cultural Transformation at Signature HealthCARE said.
The Eden Alternative Registry works to transform the well-being and daily life of elders who call nursing homes their home. Nursing homes on the Eden Alternative Registry experience less staff turnover, according to data from a survey of 2011-2016 members of the registry.
