Title:
GRACE© Model of Care: Gift of Renewal through Activities Caring and Excercise
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The GRACE© Model of Care is a new culture change model developed for assisted living communities. GRACE© outlines the approach of dignity, compassion, and integrity with the intent of focusing on the mind, body, and soul of residents, families, and employees. The GRACE© Model development, implementation, and initial data results will be presented. Since GRACE© implementation at the Monarch Center of Saco in 2010, there has been an increase in resident, family and employee satisfaction, census stabilization, and a decrease in resident falls and aggressive behaviors. Kindred Healthcare, the parent organization, has recognized the benefit of the GRACE© Model of Care and has initiated education and implementation of the culture change model in its other nursing facilities. Leading an inter-professional team through the development of the GRACE© Model, I have identified areas of growth in my own personal leadership development. First is to gain self-confidence in my insight and ability to challenge information I do not embrace. Through the GNLA, I have developed tools that allow me to feel secure in my instincts and value my own beliefs. Second, is to harness my passion in an effective way to support my leadership journey. This is an ongoing goal that I have been developing through self-reflection, meditation, nurturing relationships and active listening. Third is to enhance self-confidence and develop my public speaking skills to all audiences. Through practice and self-evaluation, I have been able to confidently speak publicly with local civic groups, Culture Change Coalition/Lane Group, and the Ombudsman of Maine.
