MetadataShow full metadata
Culture change is the common term used to describe the transformational change many long-term care facilities are beginning to embrace. In this transformation, services provided for elders and individuals with disabilities become person-centered, and the voices of residents and those serving them are considered and respected. The core values of culture change are choice, dignity, respect, self-determination and purposeful living. This monograph describes the history and principles of culture change. It describes the leading organizations in culture change, and discusses the benefits of culture change adoption for a long-term care facility's operations, satisfaction rates, and financial outcomes.
