New year, new signs Santa s elves were busy installing new signage at CapitalCare sites over the month of December. The refreshed signage was part of a project initiated in 2007 to update CapitalCare s corporate identity. The signage bears the symbol of the two Cs joined in the centre, representing the caring community of CapitalCare staff, families, volunteers and donors working together to improve quality of life for the people we serve. Each site has its own name under the CapitalCare banner. Mailing Address Return Undeliverable Canadian Addresses to: CapitalCare Corporate Services, #500, St., Edmonton, AB. T5K 2J8, P.M. # Just four months after CapitalCare Grandview opened a new sub-acute program for fractured hips, 94% of program participants have gone back home to live, rather than be admitted to long-term care. We re giving people a chance to get the rehab needed to make it on their own at home, says Louise Haley, Care Manager of the Sub-Acute Unit at Grandview. The new program is in collaboration with the Regional Orthopedic Trauma Service of Alberta Health Services. The goal of the program is to have patients receive the rehabilitation services and coordinated discharge planning to enable them to return home as soon as they are able. Claire Watkinson, 94, was discharged from the program Jan 2. and was elated to be going home. I knew I would heal, says the tiny but fiesty former oilfield camp dietitian who proudly declares that in her 30-year career with Imperial Oil she never had time to be sick. I m a healer. According to Alberta Health Services, there are approximately 1,000 people with fractured hips in the Capital region annually, with varying lengths of stay in acute care. By using sub-acute beds to provide rehab services and discharge planning, it frees up much-needed acute care beds for further surgeries. Grandview was the logical choice for the new program since it already specialized in sub-acute care for people electing to have joint surgery. The difference with patients in the hip fracture program, who share the same unit with patients in the arthroplasty program, is that more therapy is involved when there has been a traumatic event. People recovering from a hip fracture are very fearful of falling again, and since 40% of admissions to continuing care are due to falls and injuries from falls, that fear is justified, explains Haley. In addition to the physical and occupational therapy, we need to help them heal mentally as well. continued on page 12 CapitalCare 1 leaders in continuing care

Getting the New Year off to a happy, healthy and safe start One of the messages we often hear at this time of year is the wish for a happy, healthy and safe New Year. In the last edition of this newsletter I wrote about the need to balance safety, risk and quality of life in our care centres and for our residents and their guardians to determine what is right for them. As we begin 2009, I would like to share some of the measures that are helping to create a safe environment, and improve practices in our continuing care centres. Continuing Care Health Service Standards & Accommodations Audits Both routine and unannounced audits and facility inspections occur annually to ensure our centres are meeting government standards. As addition, regular safety alerts are distributed to all long term care organizations in the province. For example, some recent safety alerts have required compliance with specific procedures for sterilization of surgical instruments and medical equipment, access to hand sanitizers, the use of disposable syringes and securing hazardous substances. As well, centres have received advice on enhancing the therapeutic benefits of the medication digoxin and minimizing the incidence of an adverse drug reaction, the use of physical restraints and a recall of a particular type of transfer lift. Health Facilities Review Committee The Health Facilities Review Committee reviews the provision of services and delivery of programs by conducting routine inspections of health care facilities, investigating complaints made by or on behalf of residents and following up on referrals from the Minister. Protection for Persons in Care Act The Protection for Persons in Care Act promotes the safety and well-being of adult Albertans who receive services from publicly funded agencies, such as nursing homes or other continuing care settings. The Act defines abuse as intentionally: causing physical or emotion harm failing to provide adequate nutrition, medical attention or other necessities of life, without valid consent stealing money or other valuable possessions administering or prescribing medication for an inappropriate purpose subjecting a person to unwanted sexual contact, activity or behavior Our Mission We are leaders in innovative and compassionate care, supporting the health and respecting the dignity of the people we serve. Our Vision We are a community of excellence in continuing care: teaching, researching and learning to enhance quality of life. We Value the people we serve as our most important focus our staff, families and volunteers as our most important resources in fulfilling our mission partnerships in the community professional ethics in guiding our decision-making open and honest communication collaborative and cooperative teamwork lifelong learning, innovation and continuous improvement a safe, respectful environment within which to work, live and visit responsible use of resources, providing choices within these limits Iris Neumann, CEO The number to report abuse is This will result in an external investigation of the circumstances of the incident. This number is not intended to resolve complaints about unsatisfactory service and inappropriate use of this number can result in fines. CapitalCare Initiatives The CapitalCare Clinical Equipment and Product Standardization committee has been testing four different electric beds and the Wound Care committee has been reviewing mattresses that provide the best pressure relief for our residents. The objective of this project is to upgrade the beds in our facilities to electric beds. These new beds provide greater comfort and safety for both residents and staff. This purchase is being funded by CapitalCare s participation in a casino last year and a rebate from the Partners in Injury Reduction Program (PIR). Our PIR audits show improvement, resulting in the rebate. Another way we find out information is by regularly surveying our staff, residents and families. The surveys ask specific questions about safety, cleanliness and communication and the information we receive helps us improve our practices. Communication One of the most important tools available for improving our care and service is information. Residents, family members and staff play an important role in this. Suggestions, concerns or questions can be directed to any centre manager. Every resident has a care manager who can answer questions or if they don t know the answer can find out. If your manager is not available please ask at reception or leave your question with the unit clerk. Our commitment to you is that we value your comments and suggestions and will get back to you with a timely response. Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and safe 2009! STRATEGIC PLAN Executive Management Committee has developed a strategic plan for CapitalCare which reflects our directions and priorities for the next three years. The strategic plan is shaped by our vision, mission and values, and reflects our partnership with Alberta Health Services. The strategic plan is designed to maintain our role as leaders in continuing care during a time of significant staffing and other resource challenges. Our preferred future will evolve along the following key dimensions: Quality Ensuring care and services are peoplecentered, safe, effective, efficient, acceptable, appropriate and timely. Access Ensuring the services we offer are obtained in the most suitable setting in a timely manner. Innovation Promoting the development and implementation of new methods, techniques and systems to ensure quality and safety in care and services delivery. Research and Knowledge Transfer Creating, obtaining and transferring knowledge to improve the services we provide and to optimize the quality of life of our clients. Organizational Capacity Supporting staff through workforce planning, recruitment/retention, leadership training, staff development and communication. 2

3 Letters To Dr. Pekez and the very kind and caring staff at CHOICE Norwood: I just wanted you all to know how very much our family appreciated your support and care of our mother Eileen during her recent illness. Your program is so incredible the staff, the coordination, the accessibility the clients have to their physician, the assistance provided and problem solving, the sense of belonging my mother feels, the new friends she s making it s like a dream come true for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you! - Michelle and family Dear 2B-ers, CapitalCare Dickinsfield: It s been over six months since I have been to Dickinsfield but I have thought of you many, many times and how very fortunate we were that Andrea was able to spend her last years on 2B. I cannot find the right words to say how important all the 2B staff members were in creating an atmosphere that enabled Andrea to maintain a positive attitude when there was zero to be positive about. You shared stories and jokes; you teased her about her cowboy heroes; you ensured that she looked her very best whenever she went out; you worried when things weren t going well for her. You did so many little extras that showed her (and us) that she was a human being, not just a resident - we could not have asked for a better home for Andrea. The staff members changed many times in those nine years, but those of you who worked with Andrea especially in her later years, I hope you know what a difference you made. You were her family and we depended on you to support her and keep us informed. I truly enjoyed chatting with you- maybe not often enough and probably not with enough thanks. You have amazing gifts that you give every day to the people you work with. Thank you again for every thing you did for Andrea. I have not forgotten! Sincerely, - Yvonne S. To Jennifer Williams, Administrator, CapitalCare Grandview: Andy and I would like to submit this letter of commendation for the excellent patient care provided to Andy s father, Robert, during his stay at Grandview. Andy s father recently passed away after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer s. Grandview was his home for almost two years. We would like to convey our gratitude and appreciation to your staff and facility for the dignity and respect extended during this time. We would also like to express our sincere thanks for the support and guidance that was provided in abundance. Andy and I would like to formally acknowledge Faye and Ginnette, two exceptional women and nurses from Unit 2AB, for their compassion and professionalism as they companioned Andy s father, and us, thru this difficult yet necessary journey. Their integrity and high commitment to holistic patient and family care made Andy and I always feel confident and reassured that his father s best interests, and his medical, emotional and psychological well being, were paramount. Heartfelt thanks to both of them for giving the extra time and effort under conditions of heavy and demanding workloads. Respectfully submitted, -Andy and Holly L. To all the staff of Laurier House Lynnwood: Thank you for support, your kindness and your generosity. Iva felt like a queen here! She appreciated all the care and aid everyone on staff provided her. Our heartfelt thanks for your hard work. -The B. and P. families To the Norwood staff: They help the aged, the sick & weak Of mind & body, comforts seek. Seldom given any praise, Doesn t seem to change their ways. Always near with a helping hand Despite the ongoing demand. When day is done & we pause to rest Take time to reflect about what is best Not just for you whatever your mood Always remember, That God is good. -PeeJay, resident, Transition Unit CapitalCare Lynnwood resident Muriel Slinn (centre), celebrates Christmas with son Patrick (left), and daughter-in-law Nicole. To Bill Taylor, Manager, Adult Day Program, CapitalCare Strathcona: I was just speaking with Rose C. this afternoon - she is the daughter of Richard, who has been attending your day program since July She expressed how very pleased she is and has been with the care provided to her dad by all, with particular mention of Flo. Richard s wife past away this August and the day program has been a source of consistency and stability for this gentleman. I thought that you and your program staff might appreciate hearing the positive impact that you provide. Appreciated from our end as well, -Rose McCready Case Manager, CHOICE/ Day Programs Home Living Program, Alberta Health Services To the staff of the Kipnes Centre for Veterans: Thank you so much for all the kindness and caring you gave to my mother and myself while she was at the Kipnes Centre, especially in the last few weeks. Your support and thoughtfulness to her and to my wishes helped a lot. I am very glad that she was not in hospital, but at the Kipnes Centre; it was so much nicer for Mom to have her own room and familiarity. We could not have had better care thanks to the staff and everyone involved. Thanks, -Brenda C. & family To Diane Burpee, Care Manager, 3rd Parker Pavilion, CapitalCare Lynnwood It is hard to adequately express just how much Lorna and I have appreciated the wonderful care, comfort and attention that our sister Eleanor received from you and all your well-trained and dedicated staff during her eleven year and three month stay on your unit. It was wonderful to see her change from a very sick and confused lady into a happy and contented one. This to Lorna and I was nothing short of a miracle. Our sincere thanks to yourself, Dr. Schwalfenburg, Mary Ann, all the nurses, caregivers, pastoral care, physiotherapy, food services and maintenance staff and office personnel. Thank you all again, Stan W. An Open letter to all current and prospective caregivers, their supervisors, funding agencies and seniors groups: I m in a nursing home not because I want to be, but because my daughter, who cared for me for over 28 years, and who at 70 is no longer able to look after me with the safety that my severely frail and osteoarthritic body requires. I am that old lady at the end of the hallway who has trouble adjusting to her new teeth, and who needs help with her personal care. Some of you have a calling for the nursing profession and are, what I consider to be naturals ; you treat me with great kindness, dignity, and respect when you take care of my needs. You say my name. You help minimize my acute embarrassment of no longer being able to take care of myself. You touch me gently and tell me everything that you will and need to do so that I can cooperate and help you where I m able. I am not surprised by your actions and welcome your loving care. You hug me, stroke my hand and help me understand with soothing words. And from time to time, you pop cheerfully into my room to ask how I am or if I need anything. You make me feel that my isolated existence is still worthwhile. You call me by my name. You are my periodic sunshine and give me hope that after every shift rotation you will be reassigned to take care of all the residents in my wing. My thanks to you must be verbal but my gratitude for not being forgotten or ignored, being dealt with gently and kindly, and called by my name, is eternal. I am three months shy of my 102nd birthday. My name is legion. Please call me Emma. 3

4 On a cold, wintery morning, December 9, 15 pre-schoolers from the Lakeview Daycare joined the CHOICE program at CapitalCare Dickinsfield to give us a memorable 2008 Christmas Celebration. The children, all dressed up and complete with their Santa hats, sung carols while participants joined in. Through their smiles and giggles, the children lead us in a fun, silly little bird dance. After a snack and some treats were given out, the morning ended with We Wish You a Merry Christmas and lots of hugs. City TV taped our intergenerational program for a segment on the news. How wonderful! McConnell Place North s Edible Tree Visions of Christmases past dance in Alice Jones head as she places an edible ornament on the tree at McConnell Place North. Residents of the Alzheimer care centre started making edible ornaments in the Fall in preparation for the annual tradition. They dehydrated fruit, strung up popcorn and Cheerios for garlands, and baked gingerbread and cinnamon cookies. The familiar scents and activities associated with preparing for Christmas bring back memories for the residents and help to reduce anxiety at this sometimes hectic time of year. The tree was featured on Global TV news as well as the Edmonton Journal.

5 Mealtime companions provide nourishment and camaraderie one Loving Spoonful at a time It s lunch time on the special care unit of CapitalCare Strathcona and Babs Marteniuk is enjoying a hot meal of pineapple chicken balls, vegetables and rice. The 87-year-old resident is one of four in the dining room who can feed herself. Her five other lunch mates cannot. Like many residents in long term care centres, they require mealtime assistance. Pat Burton stares blankly at her meal, a minced version of the one Babs is enjoying. Behind them, Mel Hughes waits as well. Nearby, Louise Meyers, who can t wait, eagerly digs in to her meal, not quite making the connection between the dish and her mouth. Before the meals have time to cool, staff member Angela Sutherland glides from person to person on a stool with wheels, giving them nourishment, one loving spoonful at a time. She is assisted in this task by another staff member and two volunteers. Were it not for the assistance of volunteers and family members, mealtimes would take much longer, and not be nearly the social event they so often are. It makes the meal more enjoyable, says Heather Buckie, a registered dietitian with CapitalCare. We find on this unit, people respond to conversations and laughter. It also improves their appetite. Wendy Marteniuk agrees. Her mother Babs moved to the centre in April 2008 and by Christmas time had gained 15 pounds. Wendy attributes that in part to the quality of food and services at the centre, and in part to the social atmosphere generated by the team of staff, volunteers and family members who come in to assist with mealtimes. That s why she decided to become a regular mealtime companion. At CapitalCare, volunteers who assist with mealtimes are required to take a half-day course called the Loving Spoonful Mealtime Companion Program. The program was developed nearly a decade ago by CapitalCare and the Good Samaritan Society to provide volunteers with the knowledge and experience to help assist long term care residents at mealtime. Betty Houck took the course two years ago when her husband first came to live at Strathcona. Her husband passed away in April 2008, but Betty continues to assist residents in the centre two times a day, seven days a week. These people are like family to me now, that s why I keep coming back, says Betty. Wendy says even though her own family member doesn t require assistance at mealtime, taking the program helped her feel confident enough to assist others on the unit who have difficulty feeding themselves. It s a big help to the staff too, says Angela, who appreciates the consistent help she gets from volunteers like Betty and Wendy. It helps immensely that they re here, she said. It means the staff don t have to rush and the residents get the time they deserve to enjoy a hot meal. About 70% of the 14,500 people living in Alberta s long term care centres suffer from some form of dementia. The majority of them require assistance with meals. With three hot meals served daily, that s a lot of mouths to feed. From left to right: Volunteer Betty Houck assists CapitalCare Strathcona resident Pat Burton with her meal as resident Babs Marteniuk enjoys hers on her own. They re like family to me, says Betty, who comes in twice a day, seven days a week, to provide mealtime assistance. But the importance of good nutrition as one ages can t be understated. Residents of long term care have problems with their skin, bones and teeth. Good nutrition helps to repair wounds, fight infections and improve strength. At the same time, residents may not be too interested in eating if they are having difficulty swallowing or if they cannot enjoy the experience. The Loving Spoonful course teaches mealtime companions to look for difficulties the residents may be having while eating and gives them ideas on how to get the residents to eat. Wendy is having difficulty getting Louise Meyers to eat her strained apricot dessert. She puckers her lips. I think she s trying to tell me it s too sour. That s important information, says Heather Buckie, who works two days a week as the centre s dietitian. I can t be here watching every resident eat, but mealtime companions, especially those who assist the same resident on a consistent basis, can alert me to difficulties the resident may be having with chewing and swallowing, or, in this case, with changing tastes. We don t force them to eat if they re not hungry, says Wendy. But we try to find why they re not hungry, so that their diets can be modified. After everyone has eaten, Wendy joins her mother at the dining table. There has been much conversation and laughter shared over the course of the lunch hour and no resident leaves the table without having smiled, at least once. The team work and camaraderie make mealtimes work really well here, says Wendy. It s very rewarding to know you are contributing to someone s well-being and happiness and very gratifying to know that your loved one is part of a caring family which you can take an active part in. There are about 40 active mealtime companions across CapitalCare. To find out more about becoming a mealtime companion, contact your centre s Coordinator of Volunteer Services. Bernadette DeSantis, Communications Manager, CapitalCare Corporate Services Norwood trials new program to improve residents communication abilities This fall, CapitalCare Norwood was chosen by Alberta Health Services to trial a new program to help residents with communication and swallowing difficulties. The Communication & Swallowing Outreach, Advocacy, Rehabilitation, and Education (COARE) project is a partnership between the University of Alberta Department of Speech- Language Pathology (SLP) and Alberta Health Services. Rhonda Kajner, a Speech Language Pathologist, is spearheading the project for AHS. She says the project is an exciting opportunity to introduce SLP into streams of the community care sector for adults that have had no access or minimal access to SLP service in the past. Goals for the program include: Maximize communication function through staff and family training, group programs, and individual therapy Improve swallowing status and minimize health consequences of swallowing disorders Enhance competency among staff and caregivers for making referrals and implementing strategies In addition, the project will also allow for clinical placement experiences for SLP students. Expansions into home care, supportive living and other long term care facilities are planned in the future.

6 Kipnes Centre makes music with National Arts Centre Orchestra Photo above: (front row seated from left to right) Toby Smith follows along as daughter Susan joins residents and family members in playing Ode to Joy, while Boris Brott (standing) of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, conducts. Photo below: (from left to right) Boris Brott looks on as John Jackson and Toby Smith show him a photo of themselves as musicians with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. Susan Smith took the day off work to be with her dad Toby when she heard internationally-renowned conductor Boris Brott would be giving a concert at CapitalCare Kipnes Centre for Veterans. Harcourt Toby Smith was a cellist with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and is now a resident of the centre. A quiet resident, Smith mostly keeps to himself. But the concert by members of the National Arts Centre Orchestra brought him to his feet. He stood up and shouted Bravo! Bravo! recalls daughter Susan. It was so moving. Music brings (the elderly) out of their limitations, says Gertrude Letourneau, a flautist with the orchestra who performs as part of the music therapy program at the Perley Rideau Veterans Health Centre in Ottawa. Members of the NAC Orchestra visited the Kipnes Centre November 4 as part of a cross-country educational tour. During a morning workshop, Letourneau and two colleagues played a mix of classics and old favourites Let Me Call You Sweetheart and Danny Boy, as residents either sang along or tapped their toes to the familiar melodies. It brings back memories, says the Kipnes Centre music therapist John Lawrence. Guys like Toby and (former ESO trumpeter) Johnny (Jackson), they remember making music together. Later that afternoon, residents and family members gathered in the centre s Great Room to take part in a special concert with Boris Brott, one of Canada s most internationally recognized conductors, educators, motivational speakers and cultural ambassadors. Using tone bars each tuned to one of the five notes of the D Major scale Brott divided the residents into five groups, then cued them to hit their note in sync with an orchestra playing the same song on DVD. With a little help from staff and family members, residents were able to play the Ode to Joy from Beethoven s 9 th Symphony twice! Music has tremendous powers, says Brott. Music therapy, like the popular form of pet therapy practised at the centre, has a positive effect on the resident s physical, emotional and social interactions with others. It reduces stress and helps residents have a more meaningful quality of life. Says Brott, From the womb to the end of life, music is something we can all do together. Bernadette DeSantis, Communications Manager, CapitalCare Corporate Services Dynamic Duo share passion for music Ernie and Clem are two clients of CHOICE Dickinsfield who love to entertain and do a great job of working together. The Dynamic Duo are often seen sharing their passion of music with the entire CHOICE Program: the clients, staff, volunteers and families. Ernie sits at the piano playing many songs from memory while Clem, close by, joins in on guitar. Sometimes they will even sing for us or invite us to sing along to our favorites. Great job to our talented men and we look forward to many more years of great music! Sherri Bessette, Activities Convenor CapitalCare CHOICE Dickinsfield & CHOICE Mental Health Grandview hosts night of music The Rotary Club of Edmonton West partnered with CapitalCare Grandview to present An Evening of Arts and Entertainment November 25. This was the first in a series of special events that will take place during the 2008/09 season. The focus of this first event was to highlight the talents of up and coming musicians who are also students studying music at the University of Alberta. Performances ranged from piano to vocals and ended with a colorful performance on the marimba. Residents looked on as the student musicians played their best pieces. This concept came about when the Rotary Club of Edmonton West, long-time supporters of Grandview, approached the centre looking for new ways in which the club could continue to enrich the lives of residents. The club was searching for new ways to provide quality exposure to the arts and various entertainment, said Jerome Martin, President and Director of Community and Vocational Services. With this concept, we can bring in arts and entertainment opportunities for Grandview residents and their families to enjoy. Staying true to the Rotarian slogan service above self, the Rotary Club of Edmonton West has started another chapter in its over 30 yeas of service with CapitalCare Grandview. The next event is slated for late February.
