National Project Now Collecting Information on Person-Centered Long-Term Care

The Mayer-Rothschild Foundation Designation of Excellence in Person-Centered Long Term Care has launched its first national project, the Message Board Activity. In the upcoming months, the project team will be collecting information from residents and from organization staff and leadership in nursing homes and assisted living communities about all aspects of person-centered care. As part of its initial outreach and information-gathering effort, the project is currently recruiting long-term care settings to participate in a Message Board Activity with residents as described in the attached poster. The project hopes to reach as many long-term care settings as possible, so we hear from a diverse group of older people living in assisted and long-term care communities. Participating long-term care communities will receive social media materials they can use to highlight their participation in this important effort.

We invite all nursing home and assisted living communities across the nation to join in on the conversation of person centered-care, and participate in the Message Board Activity.
