Congratulations to St. Mary’s d’Youville Pavilion in Lewistown, Maine, for completing the first major Milestone in The Path to Mastery™: The Art of Creating a Caring Community.
This powerful new tool developed by The Eden Alternative® guides organizations through the process of transforming their culture by applying person-directed care practices. Through this approach, decisions and actions around care honor the voices and choices of care recipients and those working most closely with them.
St. Mary’s recently shared this achievement on their blog:
Through the Path to Mastery, long-term care organizations can now share and benefit from the experiences of hundreds of homes that have successfully transformed their care environments. St. Mary’s d’Youville Pavilion believes its completion of Milestone 1 is a legacy to future generations of leaders. Lessons learned can be shared with others, ensuring that Elders and employees will continue to benefit from culture change efforts.
“Step by step, the Path to Mastery Milestones will guide our organization further down the road to successful culture change,” says Kathy Murphy, Director of Nursing. “Our experience with each Milestone will be shared with other organizations to inspire them to initiate these types of change.”
Murphy shares that completing Milestone 1 has helped them to reflect on positive accomplishments and to appreciate how far they have come with putting the Eden Principles into practice. ”By completing Milestone 1, we have demonstrated real progress in moving our organization toward person-directed care.
