"The ideal hospital or long-term care
centre would combine the best of spas with the best of hotels and
the best of hospitals to become a truly healing environment, where
just being there is healing."
Maimonides leads the way in resident-centered care
Maimonides is working towards becoming the first Canadian long-term care facility affiliated with Planetree, a non-profit organization at the forefront of resident-centered care.
“Resident-centered care is about fostering a culture within Maimonides that prioritizes our residents comfort, dignity, empowerment and well-being, while providing top quality care,” says Executive Director Barbra Gold.
Planetree Continuing Care Specialist Heidi Gil has met with the Maimonides community to explain how the Planetree approach to care fits in with our five-year Strategic Plan with the ‘More than Care’ theme.
To receive the Planetree designation, Maimonides has to meet or exceed stringent criteria developed by Planetree to distinguish those health care facilities doing the most advanced work in resident or patient-centered care. The Planetree model of care emphasizes the relationships that sustain a healthy and meaningful life. It celebrates the uniqueness of each individual, and responds to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of residents and staff.
Maimonides is looking forward to the journey to become a Planetree affiliate and enhancing our residents’ experience.
