This session will initially provide details of the new CMS Rules for Participation and how they relate to our care for residents living with dementia. Attendees will learn how key principles, including person centered care, care planning, discharge planning, and staff training are incorporated into these rules. More than ever before, providers need to focus on individualized care, therapeutic approaches, root cause analysis of behaviors, and staff training to ensure requirements are met. This session will address challenges to implementation, ways to mitigate unintended consequences, and innovative strategies for successful implementation while maintaining a resident-centric focus.
