Warner Eyes 'Home' Improvements
The firsthand knowledge of nursing home residents, staff, and family members
may provide Warner School researchers with insights into ways to make late-life
care centers better.
Warner researchers received a $230,000 grant from the New York State Department
of Health to conduct a curriculum study for staff who care for nursing home
residents. The project is in partnership with ViaHealth Hill Haven, a local
nursing home, and with Lifespan of Greater Rochester, a community-based agency
dedicated to serving people in the second half of life.
Devised by Dale Dannefer, project director and professor at the Warner School,
doctoral fellow Paul Stein, and colleagues from Lifespan, the project's goal
is to improve the job satisfaction of staff and to combat problems of staff
motivation and morale.
