Care Planning for Resident Choice

The assessment of risk in long-term care is often an unbalanced exercise.  In order to optimize opportunities for resident choice; to attain each resident’s highest practicable level of well-being; and to mitigate risk, the Rothschild Foundation has created a task force.  This group is charged with developing a care planning process to plan for each resident’s choice when that choice carries potential risk.

For more information, including the pilot summary and process, please visit the MC5 resource page here.
