- Rowles and Bernard (2013) mention that “to take [home] away is an often unknowing but generally pernicious cruelty” (p. 12). Indeed, relocation to a long-term care (LTC) or assisted living (AL) facility can take its toll on the emotional and physical wellbeing of an older person.Drawing from all of the readings, what can be done to ease this transition for all parties involved?As an administrator, executive director, or post-acute leader, how might you assist older residents (and their families) in the remaking of home in LTC or post-acute care?Also as an administrator, executive director, or post-acute leader, how do you think it’s useful to have an understanding of the environmental experiences of older adults and to consider their perspectives? Explain.How might that knowledge and understanding affect or change your role as an administrator, executive director, or post-acute leader? How can an administrator and facility leaders incorporate theory and to help residents and clients to experience the environment as home during a pandemic like COVID-19? What have you observed as best practices that have supported theory?Keep in mind that a homelike environment must still comply with regulations in addition to your other administrative responsibilities. Attempt to incorporate theory into your discussion in addition to findings, etc., from the readings.
