How the LiveWell™ Method offers value

The Live Well Method

The LiveWell™ Method combines quality assurance and performance improvement. This provides the foundation for a culture of quality improvement. It touches many dimensions that affect the care experience: leadership, empowered staff, teamwork and communication. Because it affects community functions on different levels, LiveWell™ aligns with some systems you already have in place and other programs you’ve seen in the past.

LiveWell™ can give you and your staff tools to create a better environment to work and live in. This method:

  • Improves the quality of care
  • Improves resident well-being
  • Improves staff well-being and retention
  • Reduces the cost of care
  • Improves regulatory compliance


Why quality improvement?

Focus on Quality ImprovementFocusing on quality improvement is the right thing to do. Quality improvement supports a stable, well-trained workforce, safer environment and the organization’s financial health. It improves the bottom line by:

  • Reducing the cost of staff turnover
  • Reducing the cost of empty bed days
  • Reducing the cost of litigation
  • Reducing the cost of workers’ compensation claims
