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.
