Resident & Family Centred Care

At the Louis Brier Home & Hospital we view residents and family members as integral parts of the care team. We know that when families and residents are actively involved in care, this leads to better health outcomes, higher resident and family satisfaction, and greater staff morale.

We encourage residents and families to be involved in all aspects of care, including partnering in care planning, participating in a committee (please see below), involvement in resident and family councils, and providing feedback.

Care conferences are held annually for all of our residents. The care conference is attended by the interdisciplinary care team and is an opportunity to discuss the care plan, identify areas that may require updating or change, and to address any concerns that residents and families may have. For more information about care conferences please contact Debbie Litvack at (604-267-4744) or dlitvack@louisbrier.com
