Studies have shown that good communication between caregivers and residents has many benefits and contributes to individualized care. While facilities have traditionally concentrated on improving documentation, most do not have any formalized training on how to deliver empathetic, person-centric care. Direct communication between all elements of nursing, medical, administration, dietary and other staff increases confidence of family members in the facility and assigned caregivers.
