This issue discusses the importance of self-care using the 5 senses. When patients implement the use of aromatherapy, visual imagery, relaxing sounds and music, gentle touch, and taste they remain engaged and are able to self-soothe when needed.
As we celebrate the beginning of summer with Independence Day, we are also preparing for our upcoming reaccreditation survey. The unannounced survey will be conducted sometime during July or August. This newsletter shares more about this process for our staff and patients.
Our June newsletter highlights Fall Prevention Month. It is important to identify any concerns for potential falls that could be avoided. Use the provided checklist to find and fix hazards in your home.
