Abstract:
The Passion for Life model was developed in Europe to provide a framework to engage elders to live their best possible life while acknowledging their independence and treating them with respect and dignity. It seeks to bridge the gap between what one may know are good habits and how one acts in everyday life. A Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) from an acute care facility went out to the elder care community to host a series of meetings called Life Cafes which included: Safety, Socialization, Nutrition, and Mobility with continued learning as a basic component. Each Cafe supported motivating discussions among the participants that highlighted the importance of applying various methods for maintaining or changing life style patterns. Between the Cafes, participants had assignments in which the ideas they generated based on life experiences were tested. The participants acknowledged memory as a challenge and the CNL sent notices for all meetings with reminders to do their homework and bring a friend to future Life Cafes. The groups consistently grew in number and both the elders and the CNL built satisfying new relationships. The elders also felt more empowered and better able to deal with the realities of their lives. The intention is to continue the outreach to this community and encourage the independence that can contribute to high quality of life and good health. The role of the CNL is uniquely positioned to gather and coordinate the resources to successfully implement the Passion for Life model in practice.
