Holy Cross Village at Notre Dame
At Holy Cross Village, the activity logs and STAR report have really changed how I communicate with families. Formerly, during a care plan meeting I would verbally tell families what their loved one was doing based off handwritten logs we took. With the SMILE® program, I can present them with a professional looking pie chart and spreadsheet. It lends credence to what is verbally being said and reflects nicely on what Life Enrichment is doing.
Families who were accustom to how things used to be done are impressed with the STAR report and activity log. The level of professionalism it adds is an invaluable tool. I am now able to easily share information about how our residents are doing on the various dimensions of wellness programs - mind, body, and spirit - and they love it!
