Ageing Asia is the first outside of USA to bring you newly released evidence-based findings on the impact of small-scale living and vertical developments in an exclusive masterclass led by Dr Audrey Wiener, President & CEO, The New Jewish Home, USA. Care professionals across Asia Pacific who are passionate about advancing person directed care will be able to gain new evidence base knowledge, understanding of implementation variables, and key staff, elder and family member outcomes.
Over a nine month study period from April to December 2017, The New Jewish Home embarked on a research evaluation to understand and capitalise on what they have learnt from their existing accomplishments in Person-Directed Care in New York, USA. These include the establishment of Small House communities at Sarah Neuman, and the implementation of two person directed models on two communities at their Manhattan campus, the Comfort First model (palliative care for advanced dementia care) and the Guided Community model (initial implementation of the Green House Model in the Manhattan campus).
The philosophy behind person-directed care is to enable and empower elders as the primary decision maker. Globally, organisations strive to deliver this philosophy via various models, including The Greenhouse® Model advocating a radical redesign of the nursing home environment to include private rooms, private bathrooms, open kitchens and outdoor access). Under the support of this model, the Small House concept encompasses the same values, but with higher capacity and smaller environmental footprint.KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES
