New Pathways and Neighborhood Design

In 2004, LSC staff members developed a person-centered model of care called New Pathways. New Pathways encourages the development of resident-directed practices and changes in the nursing home culture that are more home-like and less hospital-like. New Pathways combines two proven culture change initiatives: the Eden Alternative, which emphasizes resident quality of life and resident choice, and Wellspring, which emphasizes quality of care and the empowerment of frontline staff through specialized training and collaboration.

In order to continue on its culture change journey, LSC has incorporated a neighborhood design into Trinity Ridge. Neighborhoods offer smaller groups of residents shared living, dining, and recreational spaces and provide a warmer, more comfortable setting.
