Jackson Manor receives award
The Jackson Manor staff followed a medical model for 26 years, where the lives of the residents revolved around routine.
When the building at 710 Broadridge was up for a remodel in 2005, the staff decided to use the opportunity to change their overall philosophy as well.
Last month the Missouri Coalition Celebrating Care Continuum Change recognized the 90 bed skilled nursing home out of all the nursing homes in the state for representing their mission, to create an environment that allows the residents to feel at home.
"Traditional nursing home schedules and routine take over the resident's life," said Dave Walker, administrator at Jackson Manor. "Residents are typically told when they have to eat and when to go to bed. We've moved away from that and let our residents make their own choices."
