We are very pleased to share our recent success with our Manitoba Health Standards Visit. Manitoba Health has 26 Standards that all personal care homes must adhere to. Every 2 years all personal care homes receive a visit where Manitoba Health and a representative from the Health Region ensures there is evidence that these standards are being met. These standards are to ensure the home provides safe Resident centered care. Click the link below to see how we did!
Below is the report shared at last evenings Family Information Night regarding our successful pet therapy program. This picture is of our volunteer Heather and her dog Ollie.
Please click the link below to read the memo from Director of Care Shannon Chartrand regarding our ongoing efforts related to safety for all of our Residents.
“The purpose of this guide is to provide information to the family members and individuals responsible for making health care decisions for patients with advanced dementia. The guide covers issues that most commonly confront decision-makers caring for patients with advanced dementia. The guide is meant to serve as a resource to provide support when sensitive and challenging decisions must be made. The information is intended to complement and encourage, but not replace, counseling by the patients’ direct health-care providers.”
Understanding weight loss in advanced dementia.
“Studies have shown that once dementia reaches its final stages, one in every two or three affected people will experience severe weight loss. Weight loss may occur despite the person with advanced dementia being given all the food they want. Weight loss may be part of the process of dying from dementia.”
