Nazareth Home
Limit 60 people

Mary Haynes, CEO and President, Nazareth Home, Inc.
Jack York, Founder, IN2L 

Your day promises to be one of discovery and engagement as the team at Nazareth Home in Louisville takes you on a tour of their community, sharing how their culture change journey has been guided by the Hatch Model, a model which supports changing culture through meaning, environment, clinical and workplace practices.  In addition to touring the campus, you will participate in 3 learning sessions.  You will see how they have brought individualization to the environment through their work with TrueDoors; how workforce innovation has been enhanced through technology and their partnership with IN2L; and how meaning and clinical practice have come together through their Connected Affirmation Palliation (CAP) program, which focuses on the integration of palliative care and engagement technology as central components to restorative, activity and therapy programs in senior living. The CAP program aims to increase the opportunity for person-centered care to grow beyond the traditional standard and daily life of persons living in nursing and assisted living communities while creating pathways that increase active daily living and provide a road map as to how to pivot into the palliative care phase.
