Thank you for visiting the LEADER website. I am thrilled to be serving you as President of LEADER in 2017! I have worked in long-term care for the last ten years. LEADER's Mission is to champion person-centered communities where aging adults and their care partners are valued, respected and honored. In order to fulfill our mission, we must continue to transform communities and enrich the lives of the residents with person- centered care. LEADER has three chapters in Baton Rouge, Lake Charles and Shreveport that work to promote person-centered care and culture change throughout the state.
The 8th Annual LEADER Summit – Lights, Camera, Action: Setting the Stage for Person-Centered Care was held in Marksville, LA, March 15-16, 2017. We had many dynamic speakers present on topics such as, The Final Rule As It Relates To QAPI And Resident Choice, C.R.E.A.T.E.: A Sustainable Approach To Culture Change, Turning Patients, Reisdents And Families Into Outrageously Loyal Fans, How To Involve Families In The Care Of Their Elders, Clinician's Perpective In A Culture Change Model, Staff Recruitment And Retention Training, Preventing And Managing Alzheimer's Disease: Lessons For Long Term Care Friom The Latest In Technology, and many more! Each year, Summit is a tremendous opportunity that delivers ideas on improving person-centered care across the entire continuum of care. The LEADER Summit is an amazing value, and everyone is welcome! The 8th Annual Summit will be held in March of 2018. More details coming soon!
