Solutions
1. Land use- create a mini golf course, and a garden with different kinds of
fruits and vegetables for elderlys to work on. (Green house in the winter
time).
2. House Activities- i.e., karaoke, fitness, America Idol, programs with school
children, pet days, music with instrumentalist, birds, butterflies and a salt
water fish tank. Residents love animals. Creative ideas will create a huge,
different impression about the company.

supervisor.
4. Flooring. Change the carpet to a vinyl tile with different styles, which is
easy to maintain and is resistant to chemicals and urine (antimicrobial).
5. Daily housekeeping. Clean and sanitize bathroom every day.
6. Hire housekeeping staff to do laundry so that the nursing assistant can
focus on resident care.

temperature control. Also, find efficient programs for heating and air
conditioning whose to lower the energy consumption.

Main Concern
My priority is to give elderly people a better quality of life. I want to show and make sure that
families and employees understand old age is a period that every single person will confront. I want to
create a project which can help everyone to participate and to understand what it feels like when a
person experiencing a period of loss and decline. For example, by giving a virtual experiment in which
family or employees can experience poor vision, poor hearing, and mental illness such as dementia, it
will raise our awareness of decreasing physical strength and disease. Also, it can help us toward older
adults as knowledgeable caregivers.

slowly loosing my memory, but i

EMPATHY is seeing with the eyes of


another, listening with the ears of
another, and feeling the heart of
another. A. Adler

Conclusion
Living in Assisted Living is already a hard thing to accept for a resident. It is also
difficult for the family to decide what path to take with an elderly family
member. We need to face the fact that we all age and we need to prepare for
our future very carefully. Although time is running out, the most important thing
we can do is express our appreciation for the love and support that we received.
As a caregiver, take time and make the best of the situation and you will gain
more respect, reward, and opportunity in life. As an employee, we cannot do
much to make changes but we can discuss experiences and give ideas. Looking
at problems as a challenge can give motivation. Resolving conflict with respect
and care helps us to be better people. These ideas will build a great company.
