Me, Myself and I: Developing the "I" Care Plan for Your Residents Webinar  
Thursday, June 14, 2018 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Resident choice is paramount to new regulations. This session introduces participants to the I-Care Plan; a person-centered approach to care. The differences between medically-based care plans and person-centered plans are reviewed; examples of an I-Care Plan are offered. Steps to developing person-centered care plans are reviewed including exploratory questions to uncover personal preferences. Care plan meetings are discussed including participant roles and adjusting the meeting from the “traditional” to person-directed. Often, providers want to honor resident choice, but have fears of injury, risk, or liability. Key is balancing quality care/safety with choice which, while potentially risky, improves QOL. To address risk, the steps of Care Planning for Resident Choice will be reviewed.

Sexuality in Long Term Care: Open Your Mind (And Close the Door, Please) Webinar  
Thursday, July 12, 2018 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

What is sexuality and why is it so seldom spoken of when talking about older adults, particularly those in LTC?  This session explores perspectives of residents, staff, and family members related to sexuality and intimacy.  Through group discussion/short case studies, it helps staff consider their views, identify barriers, and facilitate solutions and strategies when sexual expression becomes problematic.  Strategies for meeting resident sexuality needs without intercourse are explored.  Sexuality and intimacy as these relate to dementia, issues with consent, problematic behaviors, and the dilemma of “adultery” are addressed.  Finally, concepts important for guiding policy and procedure development are reviewed.
