Neighbourhood Team Development: An Evaluation

Neighbourhood Team Development (NTD) is an education program that empowers teams to work more closely together to put living first in long-term care neighbourhoods at Schlegel Villages. The evaluation of the program will help to determine what is working well and what can be improved for the future.

Project Status: Complete

Project Description

The NTD program is used in all Schlegel Villages to provide training and education for team members. The research team conducted interviews, surveys, and looked at village-wide data to determine if the program was leading to positive outcomes for residents and team members. This study was the first of its kind to gather a wide variety of information to examine the relationship between resident-centred models of living and care and quality of life outcomes. The results of this study help us to better understand the ways in which resident-centred models of living can improve quality of life and lead to the development of a supportive community where everyone thrives.
