Good communication with all colleagues. Daily meeting/roundings at shift change. Recruiting and keeping a good team. Make people accountable.
Hire manager's who don't mind learning from their workers or taking advice from their workers. Not everyone in leadership knows everything. Have competitive pay, to low at these facilities, better benefits, monthly morale boosters (morale to low). Fix up these facilities that need fixing residents pay to much to live there.
Treat the residents in memory care with respect, if you give love and try to reason with the ones who have the capability of understanding they will work with you. Now, if you rush, yell and handle them in a caring manner a lot could be accomplished. In the hiring process inform the candidate what the position entailed, without a proper training certain residents cannot be handled. Provide the necessary equipment to handle certain residents that are not able to move freely this will avoid any additional aggravation of wounds to the resident.
