JAMDA Vol. 14, No. 4 – Elsevier
Compares resident data from 33 traditional nursing homes with 35 nursing homes that are structured in the household model, in accordance with person-centered care standards. The report finds that residents in household-model nursing homes showed superior outcomes in several areas, including better self-performed eating ability and lower usage of restraints. However, traditional nursing homes reported a lower fall rate among residents.
