Ontario’s Indigenous people have unique cultural requirements that must be supported by health care, including long-term care. This report summarizes the findings from a needs assessment to explore strategies to better support Ontario’s Indigenous people in long-term care homes.
Working on the RIA team has really opened my eyes to how I want to be with my residents at work and how I want to really help them make the most of their day and LIVE to their full potential. I look forward to sharing positive information with the team I work with on the floor and my department. I personally feel more rewarded having a more positive mindset in my job, this experience makes my more aware of how I am doing my job.
Not everyone knows where to start or what to do next when thinking about changing organizational culture. The Research Institute for Aging (RIA) can provide the tools and support to start people on the right path. We are there to guide an organization as they embark on this new adventure.
Coaches from the RIA, with direct experience in successful long-term care and retirement living culture change initiatives, will provide guidance through the nine steps of culture change. Culture Change requires a tailored approach for engagement, discovery, reflection and change to meet unique organizational needs. The process of culture change takes time and the coaches will work one-on-one with organizations to develop a plan that is tailored to their unique needs and culture.
The RIA will work with you to determine the number of sessions and timing between sessions to enable your team to introduce and trial concepts learned at each of the coaching sessions. Following each coaching session, a summary will be provided outlining what has been accomplished and the next steps to be taken.
