“Our research indicates that strategies intended to support choices for long-term care residents must be based on the understanding that care is a relationship involving residents, their families and workers. It also means understanding that appropriate conditions of work are central to care as a relationship that allows residents and their families to exercise choices. Included in those conditions are provisions that allow staff to know residents and families, that give them the time they need to devote to resident care and that encourage staff to use their judgement in responding to the preferences of residents and families. Although what makes up appropriate conditions varies from place to place, we have identified some that are essential to supporting choices.” — The editors
