Staffing Level Mandates
Mandating increased staffing at nursing homes may seem like a no-brainer. But are more regulations and enforcement – “getting tough” - really the best answer? Patrick Bultema, takes on this question in the latest CEO Spotlight.

Identity & Intersectionality
We are more than the sum of our parts. Person-directed care begins and ends with the quality of our relationships. And building stronger caring relationships means understanding and honoring the unique identity of every individual we support – their challenges, their strengths, their stories… and the “intersection” between them.

Why Are We Still Dropping The F-Bomb?
That’s how we should view the word ‘facility’. As the queen mother of all dirty words. The F-bomb. Pay attention and you’ll notice it’s still spoken by people in our field constantly. And used by our regulatory agencies. It’s time to eradicate “facility” from our vocabulary.
