Resident & Family Involvement
Resident Council Meetings
Resident council meetings are held monthly by Recreation staff for all residents to attend. This is an opportunity for the residents to give their input, and express their concerns or suggestions. Each Department Head attends these meetings so that they can answer any questions regarding their department.
If a Department Head is unable to attend the resident council meetings and there are questions or concerns regarding their department, the recreation staff will relay the information to the manager to ensure the questions or concerns get addressed.
This is a time for residents to make suggestions regarding things like adding a favourite meal to the menu.
Interdisciplinary Care Conferences
Care conferences are held within six weeks of admission to review/revise initial resident plan, providing a basis for ongoing planning and identifying risks, i.e. falls. Following the first year of admission, annual care conferences are held to ensure the plan of care continues to meet the resident’s needs, desires, values and strengths.
These meetings are held to ensure each individual resident is receiving the up most quality of life while achieving family satisfaction of care and services that have been provided at Wynn Park Villa
Family receive written notice with time and date of the scheduled care conference as well as a call within the week of the care conference to confirm attendance. If someone is unable to attend, the care conference may be rescheduled.
Care conferences are held in the meeting rooms on each resident unit and are approximately thirty minutes in length. Members include one or more family representative and staff representatives from various disciplines including, Staffing Clerk to take minutes, Director of Care, RN/LPN or supervisor, CCA or RCW, Recreation, Director of Support Services, Dietary Aide, Dietician and Mobility Aid.
The Interdisciplinary summary is reviewed. Discussions include medical and non medical interventions, i.e. therapies, meals and food service, emotional needs, and physical needs (New clothing, personal care items) and personal concerns. Issues and goals are written on dated care plan with measurable objectives, responsibilities and timeline clearly defined.
The Care plan is revised to reflect the best approach to care for each resident. Resident care plans act as a road map to guide all who are involved with resident care. Care plans are revised and updated annually, quarterly, and/or as resident status changes. Updates are entered in RIM by Unit Team Leader.
