Presenter:


Sienna Caspar, PhD, CTRS

Sienna received a B.Sc. in Therapeutic Recreation from the University of South Alabama in 1990. She has worked in long-term care facilities in both Canada and the United States for over 20 years as both a certified therapeutic recreation specialist (CTRS) and a consultant. In 2008, she received a MA in Gerontology from Simon Fraser University.  Her thesis explored the relationship between care staff empowerment and the ability to provide person-centred care in long-term care settings.  She continued to study this important topic at the University of British Columbia, where she completed her PhD in the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program. As a postdoctoral fellow in a cross appointment at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute/University Health Network and the University of Victoria, she conducted an intervention study aimed at improving leadership and collaborative decision making in long-term care settings. Currently, she is an assistant professor at the University of Lethbridge in the Faculty of Health Sciences—Therapeutic Recreation program. 

 

Summary 

 

Improving the provision of person-centred care practices during mealtimes is essential to the quality of life for persons with dementia living in residential care homes. This webinar will describe the Feasible and Sustainable Culture Change Intervention (FASSCI) Model—a unique and innovative model for culture change in residential care homes that improves collaboration, accountability, mutual understanding, and knowledge sharing among all stakeholders (e.g., licensing inspectors, family members, and formal care team members).

Join us and learn how, despite significant contextual and organizational challenges, we successfully increased (and sustained!) care staffs’ ability to consistently provide relational and person-centred care during mealtimes!

This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).

We ask that you only register for this event if you are certain you can attend, we also encourage participants joining from the same location or organization to share a computer, as we have limited space. Thank you.
