Person-centered care is possible, sub-acute care provider says

Windsor Healthcare, a sub-acute care provider in nine communities throughout New Jersey, is teaching hospital CEOs, nursing home administrators and other healthcare leaders how to embrace the person-centered care movement. Batsheva Katz, vice president for quality initiatives at Windsor Healthcare, and consultant Emi Kiyota are sharing strategies for changing the culture in healthcare organizations that provide services for the elderly and others who need long-term care at the Pioneer Network's national conference in Seattle. The person-centered care movement offers elderly patients and residents choices on how to live, eat, relax, congregate and even bathe, rather than insist that residents fit within an institutionalized regimen.
