How Organizing Linen and Supplies Turned Morning Care from Frantic to Meaningful

149

Published on

Morning care is, for many long-term care residents, one of the only times they get dedicated one-on-one time with a care giver. Before this transformation, however, if you visited the unit, what you saw was care givers scurrying up and down the halls looking for linen and supplies. Now the halls are empty and silent, because the care givers are where they need to be – delivering uninterrupted one-on-one care to residents with all the supplies they need just where and when they need them and in the right amount.
