Person-centered behavior management program for traditional and younger, challenging residents that decreases aggression and increases safety.

Lifebridge© is the path to providing residents and staff a calm, safe facility.

The new range of behaviors being experienced in our facilities present challenges we have not been prepared to manage resulting in a new wave of increased daily frustrations. These frustrations are shared by residents, staff, family and leadership. These frustrations are demonstrated in increased challenging behaviors, increased numbers of staff resigning and leaving our industry, and leadership either leaving or cycling and re-cycling the same plans with the same escalating frustrating results. LifeBridge© offers a new proactive approach for our new challenging environment.

LifeBridge© is a full interdisciplinary program utilizing concepts of person centered care based on individualized care. Experience has shown us that as much as 96% of challenging behaviors are actually being set into motion by our own actions. LifeBridge© provides specialized full facility training developing an understanding of the basis and origins of behaviors and the paths of effective interventions for prevention and management. Implementing LifeBridge© has resulted in success of decreasing challenging behaviors, decreasing employee turnover, and increasing both resident and family satisfaction. LifeBridge© trainers have ‘walked the walk’ facing these behavior challenges and share their expertise and successful techniques in developing peace for the facility.

How Lifebridge© fulfills Phase 3 ROPs

The Lifebridge© program is more than just a pathway to effective behavioral management, it also helps facilities comply with Phase 3 RoPs.

The Lifebridge© program was developed with the primary goal of resident and staff quality of life improvement, and also with an understanding of how Phase 3 ROPs and other regulatory changes will affect the quality of care. The new Phase 3 Requirements of Participation are scheduled to take effect Nov. 28, 2019. While it may seem that the first two phases included the most work, Phase 3 includes a variety of programmatic changes that will require extensive training for staff, including comprehensive person-centered care planning, like those found within the Lifebridge© program.

Lifebridge© has specific considerations and fulfilments of the following Phase 3 RoPs:

F741

Behavioral Health
42 CFR 283.40

F699

Quality of Care
42 CFR 283.25(m)

F940
