Assisted Living Guidebooks: Free Guides & Workshop For Seniors, Residents and Staff to

Foster Greater Quality of Life in Assisted Living

Assisted living is the fastest growing type of senior housing, holding out the promise of giving people the opportunity to get care and help with daily living in a home-like environment. It represents a move away from the institutionalized care setting often found in nursing homes, toward an environment that allows for greater freedom and independence and a higher quality of life. Unfortunately, the promise of assisted living is not always fulfilled. Too often, assisted living provides an environment that is much more institutionalized than necessary.

Free Guides: To address this issue, LTCCC and CIAD (the Coalition of the Institutionalized Aged & Disabled) have jointly produced free guides to help achieve greater resident autonomy and quality of life in assisted living. The four guides - one each for potential residents, current residents, direct care staff and administrative staff - provide valuable tools and information on how to achieve the promise of assisted living. They are free and easy to use.

Free Training Workshop: With generous support from the Nash Family Foundation, LTCCC developed a training program for senior community leaders, geriatric care managers, long term care ombudsmen and others who work with older adults to introduce them to the guides and provide an easy way for them to take the benefits of the guides back to others.

This workshop, in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, can be downloaded for free (along with the guides) by clicking on the picture above. Individuals and organizations can use the workshop to conduct staff trainings, community workshops or other programs that will help seniors use the guides effectively to achieve a high quality of life in assisted living.
