slide2
The focus of this program was to increase the input of our 2nd floor Residents, many with mild to moderate cognitive impairment. The name was derived from the long standing radio show on C.J.O.B.

We thought by using this name it may spark some familiarity since many Residents still maintain some long term memory.

slide3
Our Resident Council on the 1st floor were very active and often their decisions could impact 2nd floor programming. We needed an avenue of fairness. Beefs and Bouquets provided that opportunity.

The purpose of this program was to empower Residents by facilitating the success of simple decision-making. For example choices of meals, entertainment and programming.

    • Programs
    • Food Choices
    • Entertainment
    • Outings
follow through

  • Programs and choices are incorporated in the monthly recreation calendar.
  • It is critical to ensure that what Residents have requested actually happens.

outcomes
OUTCOMES
  • Resident was all smiles when a program she had suggested was successful.

Several family members came up to her after the program to thank her for her suggestion.

outcomes con t
OUTCOMES con’t
  • Due to Residents input the following changes have occurred:
    • milkshakes and ice wafer cookies for 2nd floor birthday parties have become standard fare due to Resident input
    • increased entertainment on 2nd floor
    • pureed meals-breakfast (eggs Benedict) lunch (hamburgers)
    • increase in special events on 2nd floor ie. Birthday Parties and Pub Night
outcomes con t20
OUTCOMES con’t
  • Dinner Party – Resident’s spouse commented that she was not able to take her husband out and having a special dining experience was like going out to a restaurant.
  • Residents chose specific food items like donuts or Tim Bits. Success of the program was evident since all the donuts and Tim bits were gone while the cookie tray was still ½ full.
slide21
The Beefs and Bouquets Program has had a positive impact of the whole culture of the facility.

The 1st floor Residents were reluctant to join any 2nd floor events. Due to the Pub Night and Birthday Parties on the 2nd floor, these Residents have become more accepting and now readily attend programs up there.

slide22
Many of us assume we know what’s best for the Residents.

We make assumptions that Residents with cognitive impairment can not contribute or make simple decisions regarding their choices or daily activities.

By doing so we fail to empower Residents.

As staff, we tend to take over.

Our Beef and Bouquets Program requires us to step back and allow Resident decision making.

slide23
This program has not been an easy one for recreation staff to facilitate. Some meetings have been more difficult than others.

Participation at meetings can range from minimal to maximum. Most importantly we never assume that the Residents are not capable.

Staff have been taken aback by how adamant the Residents are when it comes to their likes and dislikes. Resident responses are often quite different than what staff have anticipated.

slide24
When dealing with cognitively impaired, some Resident’s family members have said, I don’t know why I come here, my mother/father doesn’t even know I’m here.

Our answer to them is you know you’re here and that is the most important thing. Even though there are times when Residents may not know or realize they are being empowered, we know that we are facilitating it. The greater crime would be not to try.
