The Institute on Aging is evaluating the LiveWell MethodTM, a quality assurance and performance improvement approach created by The Malden Collective. This approach is being implemented in assisted living and residential care communities (AL/RC) in Oregon with the goal of developing staff competencies that enhance resident and staff dignity, including team building, measuring and improving, keeping residents well, and organizing the physical space within a community. The evaluation provides rapid feedback to The Malden Collective during implementation and assesses the impact of the LiveWell approach on AL/RC employees' knowledge and use of quality improvement goals and tools.
More information is available on the LiveWell Oregon website.
