“ST. JANE DE CHANTAL LONG-TERM CARE SERVICES” PROGRAM
Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital.
Lincoln, Nebraska, USA.
"St. Jane de Chantal offers a holistic approach to care emphasizing the mind, body and spirit in a welcoming, caring environment."
St. Jane embraces a holistic approach to elder care emphasizing the mind, body and spirit connection, treating all aspects of the person including their physical, psychological, social, recreational and spiritual needs.
The focus for nursing care staff is to not only take care of resident’s physical needs but their social and psychosocial needs also.
At St. Jane de Chantal, direct nursing care staff is trained using the "Best Friends Approach to Care." A "Best Friend" is a family member, friend or member of the resident's care team who empathizes with the resident's situation, remains loving, positive and dedicated to ensuring the resident has a sense of security and value. Staff members get to know each resident's life story, preferences and interests in order to better provide person-centered care.
