Resident Rights: The Resident’s Perspective
In this candid DVD, residents give valuable insights on what is most important to them as residents receiving care from others. This ‘guide’ to resident rights and respectful care will motivate staff to acknowledge and respect these basis needs.
On the importance of quality care: ‘I think that you want good care…but you also need people who are respectful and kind, who have compassion for people who have things they’ve never experienced yet in their lives.’
On the importance of having choices: ‘It makes you feel that you have more control over your own destiny; it makes you feel like somebody’s paying attention to what you want, rather than just shoving things at you.’
Residents also share their views on:
- freedom to live the life they choose,
- safety and assistance,
- grooming and cleanliness,
- choice of roommates,
- social interaction, and
All long-term care and assisted living staff should view this care-enhancing program.
