Adult Daycare for Patients with Alzheimer's Disease

Barriers to Daycare Utilization:

The study by Fortinsky et al. (2009) discusses some of the obstacles standing between family caregivers and the admission of their patients to daycare nursing communities. The purpose of the research is to evaluate strategies that might improve the willingness of family caregivers to work with these community services. In a consultation with 84 family caregivers, the study aims to determine what strategies might raise confidence in the capabilities of such services. Additionally, the study seeks to evaluate the responses of primary caregivers to the outcomes produced by this type of intervention. A third objective of the study would be to determine how successfully…… [Read More]

As study of community-based Alzheimer's support services in France lends greater insight into the obstacles preventing the optimization of care. According to the study by Cantegreil-Kallen (2006) et al., France provides a state-administered network of community-based services available to individuals suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia related to aging. While this federal oversight provides regulatory consistency and quality control, it may also be impeding the fullest possible effectiveness of community-based service contexts. According to the study in question, "Although GPs acknowledged carers' need for emotional support, only minimal levels of other interventions such as day care (12%) and psychotherapeutic interventions (12%) were prescribed. Reasons for under-use included non-availability and carers' reluctance to undergo psychotherapy. Lack of integrated community care services, insufficient information on services, lack of collaboration between health professionals and the frequent absence of a reliable carer were considered the most important barriers to the effective support of people with dementia in primary health care settings." (p. 317)

This confirms the general observation drawn from the preset research that while there are clear benefits to the employment of any form of daycare, community agencies often lack the resources or protocol to ensure that patients are given the best opportunity for the improvement of faculties as well as the improvement of long-term health outcomes.

Organizational Motivation Leadership Effective and Positive Leadership

Organizational Motivation Leadership

Effective and positive leadership is a basic foundation for any administrative institution to yield good results and therefore cause a great impact.

In this study we base our focus on a critical organization which is the infant daycare.

Infant daycare organization

Infant daycare centers are organizations that focus on the welfare of the child by providing care while the parent goes to work or gets engaged in other activities that may not allow the mother of father to be around the child during the day. The state requires that such organizations meet certain standards of safety, health and that the staff should have proper training. These institutions are normally equipped with fun toys and learning materials with the qualified caregivers trying as much as they can to make the life of infants as comfortable as possible. With the many challenges that infants face including having to master…… [Read More]

The anxiety that difficulties in juggling family and work tasks can negatively affect worker presentation has led some employers to offer on-site child-care or add family leave to benefit packages. If such initiatives, employers have assumed, reduce friction between family responsibilities and work demands, then worker productivity should increase and unexcused absenteeism and unnecessary turnover should decrease (randon & Temple, 2007).

Employer enefits of Providing on-site Child Care

Keeping up a population of skilled, industrious workers is a recurrent challenge for employers. For working parents, their challenge is frequently related to obtaining convenient, quality child care solutions. Today, a lot of employers are addressing this work-life challenge and have started offering child care benefits that sustain the work/life balance of workers. and, in spite of budget crunches and space limitations that many companies face today, there are many options to meet the needs and budgets of employers both large and…… [Read More]

Barcenas-Frausto, J. (2009). Family-supportive policies: The employer-sponsored child-care approach as an influence of the relationship between work and family outcomes. The Business Review, Cambridge, 14(1), 92-98.

This paper investigates the potential benefits of implementing a family-supportive policy, such as employer-sponsored child care, to enhance organizational policies. There is a lack of present research on this topic, and this paper contributes a consideration of the availability of organizational policies relating to employees' work-family balance and work-related outcomes in a nontraditional-hour workplace. It examines the existing literature and household employment configurations, including single and dual-career employees making strategic child care decisions. The Map of the Child Care Assistance Territory provides a model for considering the independent variables of household employment configuration, use of familial care, and dependent-care profile.

Benefits to Employers. (2011). Retrieved from http://www.cclc.com/employers/benefits-employers

Approximately 9% of employers provide on-site or near-site child care centers; 11% of employees say they work for employers who do so. And specialized child care programs, such as backup child care, priority access or tuition discount programs offer employees a potentially nationwide, equitable benefit outside the scope of a dedicated child care center. Companies that invest in dependent care support services realize huge savings as a result of reduced absenteeism and higher employee productivity and retention.

Angry. Opinionated. Possessing a unique will and capabilities. Ready to explore the world, regardless of whether his or her parents think he or she is ready to do so. Although this description may seem to fit the profile of the typical adolescent, it is also a fair description of toddlers as well. Toddlerhood is the first major stage of childhood development when children are learning how to test their limits and stretch and grow as people by taking risks. As any parent knows, every toddler's favorite word is a decided 'no,' usually uttered in a very loud and declarative tone! Parents are often frustrated during this period of their child's development, as they strike a balance between encouraging the toddler's independence while still striving…… [Read More]

Mayor Spark,

As I'm sure you're already aware, the nation has not yet been liberated from the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. Tax revenues are down; budgets are shrinking; municipal employees are being laid off far and wide. While many of the proposals before your desk present short-term solutions to the fiscal crisis, they fail to address the long-term needs of our people, more specifically, our municipal workers.

The demographics of our workforce in Northville have shifted dramatically over the last several decades. Nearly thirty-five percent of the 1,800 public employees are now female (or roughly 630), while over forty percent (720) of the total male/female workforce has stated that available, affordable child-care is important to them. Mary Lux, Director of the office of Personnel has indicated that one of the primary reasons for municipal employees to be absent or arrive late is a lack of available, affordable…… [Read More]

Any information you would feel comfortable sharing with me would be invaluable. I would also be interested in any advice you could give to me regarding insuring the faculties of a day care center and the hiring procedures necessary to recruit quality personnel to watch the children during the day.

Any additional advice you could provide, from toys to curriculum, to potential problems I may need to anticipate, to how to set the core policies of the organization (from basic fees to requiring toddlers to be toilet trained) would also be extremely helpful. I realize you are busy, but I would be glad to speak with you over the phone (my phone number is xxx-xxx-xxxx) or visit you at The Gingerbread House if that is more convenient, to discuss any advice you might have.

Parents also typically call to confirm that our caregivers have remembered to dispense medications or provide other types of special care required by their children. Generally, telephonic communication is the primary communications medium that we use, simply because it is the most common and frequently used communications medium among people.

Email Communications

he use of email has been tremendously influential in our industry just as it has throughout society since approximately the turn of the 21st century. When we first installed a computer system in 1995, it was strictly used to maintain information, financial records, employment information, and to generate printed material. We upgraded to Internet connectivity and email capabilities in 1997 but email was not used that often for direct communication with clients.

The use of email has been tremendously influential in our industry just as it has throughout society since approximately the turn of the 21st century. When we first installed a computer system in 1995, it was strictly used to maintain information, financial records, employment information, and to generate printed material. We upgraded to Internet connectivity and email capabilities in 1997 but email was not used that often for direct communication with clients. We constructed our website in 1998 and at that time, we provided a contact us link that was initially intended to be use primarily by prospective clients.

Almost immediately, we noticed that some of our clients started using that link to contact us for routine communications. At that time, most of our e-mail exchanges came from clients' business computer systems because while many professional businesses had already implemented Internet connectivity, comparatively fewer private individuals and families had yet moved to computer communications at home. In between 1999 and 2000, we noticed a dramatic increase in the use of email for routine communications and inquiries from our existing clients and we upgraded our network system to be able to handle the increased volume of email communications.

Now that email communication has become the primary means of communication besides the cellular telephone, we have changed many of our procedures to make sure that we exploit that medium to its full potential. We provide our customers with an electronic email newsletter and we frequently use email to provide supplemental information as necessary. We also give our clients the option of receiving their billing information online only, for which we give a nominal discount to support the global environment and because it would reduce our overhead if we could gradually convince all of our clients to go paperless. Communication via email offers instantaneous transmission of critical information in a format that also allows us to delay responding to routine exchanges. That is tremendously helpful to us in comparison to telephonic communications because they require a real-time response whether the nature of the communication is critical or merely routine.

The second type of competition is posed by the local pet care services, which -- similar to The Happy Pup Daycare Center -- are focused on small scale services, with an increased willingness and ability to customize the service offering.

Childcare Considerations

The author of this report is to describe and consider the different options that exist when it comes to childcare. Each one will be described and there will then be a recitation of the pros and cons of each approach. Indeed, multiple options exist but there are obviously tradeoffs with each one. The author will proceed as directed and will choose the best one, based on the totality of the options that exist and which one is best. While being a stay-at-home parent is not always possible or practical, it is probably the best overall option for childcare in many situations.

One option that exists when it comes to childcare is a daycare facility. The upsides to this option include that there are typically licensure and background checks for such facilities and there will be plenty of opportunities for socialization and exposure to other people, which is something…… [Read More]

The existence of on-site daycare becomes a 'perk' in attracting high-level talent during the peak years of productivity.

Improvement

Statistics make a compelling case: "savings in wages of $150,000 and $250,000 for just two companies that provided on-site day care" underline the advantage of retention and company loyalty through corporate daycare (Hahn 2007). orkers will be less apt to stay home when they cannot find care or a sitter -- also they can monitor a mildly ill child at the facility, rather than stay home. For women, corporate daycare levels the playing field and means they do not have to choose between motherhood and a career. Even fathers can enjoy seeing more of their children. orkers will feel better and less stressed at work. They will sense their company cares about them as human beings, not just as workers.

esearchers have an occasion to further organizational science and to make research practical by producing information that can impact changing organizational forms and circumstances. Pragmatically, academic researchers are not likely to get access to a company that is going through change unless the practitioners believe the research will be helpful (Gibson & Mohrman, 2001).

There have been a number of calls to augment the significance and effectiveness of organizational science to companies. The usefulness challenge cannot be defined merely as getting practitioners to value and include what academics learn. It is believed that the usefulness of research depends, somewhat, on the degree to which the perspectives of organization members are incorporated in research procedures and the results are included into those members' organization design activities that take place as their company adjusts to its changing environment. esearch is more likely to be seen as useful if there are occasions for…… [Read More]

Fundamentally, hygiene factors are required to make sure a worker is not dissatisfied. Motivation factors are desired to motivate a worker to higher performance. Herzberg also further classified peoples actions and how and why they do them, for instance, if one performs a work related action because they have to then that is ranked as movement, but if one performs a work related action because they want to then that is ranked as motivation (Scheid, 2010).

The principles of Herzberg's Motivation-Hygiene theory have been applied to a wide variety of factors influencing worker satisfaction. These factors comprise: working circumstances, quality of supervision, salary, status, security, company, job, company policies and interpersonal associations (Two Factor Theory -- Herzberg, Frederick, 2011). In the application of Motivation-Hygiene theory to this study of employee attendance and satisfaction, the factor that will be looked at is that of onsite childcare programs.

Moreover, recent welfare reforms have focused on work requirements and lifetime limits on public assistance, which increasingly necessitate the provision of childcare to low-income families. The state distinguished 27 classes of child care service, based on age of child, hours of care per day, and size of the child care provider. For each of seven geographic areas in the state, a maximum subsidized fee for one day's care for each class of service was specified. If a provider's fee was less than this amount the state paid the fee, while if a fee exceeded this maximum, the state paid the maximum and the client was responsible for the difference. Eligible households had their choice of child-care providers. Although the subsidy payment was often made directly to a provider, the subsidy was on behalf of a particular client. Many clients were required to provide a co-payment, which depended on family income…… [Read More]

This leads one to believe that they are not very well off financially and the mother has not real education in order to obtain employment since she is currently attaining administrative assistant training. Antonio also has issues with controlling his behavior when in the daycare environment, as he frequently has violent outbursts and crying spells.

If one were to assess Antonio from an Eco-Feminist perspective one would be better able to understand Antonio and his present behavior. Ecofeminism is the social movement that regards the domination of women and nature as unified. It is one of the few movements and analyses that in fact connect the two movements. Lately, ecofeminist theorists have extended their analyses to reflect on the interconnections flanked by sexism, the domination of nature, and also racism and social dissimilarities (What is Ecofeminism, n.d.). Daniel spent a lot of time suppressing Hilda in his behavior that he…… [Read More]

Despite this news, she continues to live her life and if worse comes to worse, she will adopt. In addition to this strength, she also accepts people as they are.

Like it or not, education is also integrally connected to politics and the nation's political life. Monitoring the impact of national legislation, like No Child Left Behind, on how Americans view education as well as local changes in certification of teachers and daycare facilities and how this will impact staffing and financing the center is a must. Examining changes in what parents want from daycare centers, based on shifting demographics, requires educators to read popular literature as well, such as Parenting magazines and other magazines that might be read by users of the center.

Tracking changes in literature and trends written for children, like the Harry Potter series, or new multicultural offerings ensures that student's passions and interests will be aroused in the lesson…… [Read More]

level of communication it takes to handle a case where a child has multiple disabilities. A transdisciplinary approach is useful in allowing professionals to collaborate and ask for help should the client or the client's parent require it. Handling a child with multiple disabilities is an arduous process. It involves use of equipment, proper handling, and consistent therapy that cannot be done in a multidisciplinary setting. Well, it can be done, but not as successfully as in a transdisciplinary setting.

Connecting the material back to earlier information read, open-ended interview questions help collect information from a parent more than simple questions. It is so important during the initial stage of a case to understand what the child goes through each day and how the parent handles the child. While this part may seem difficult by asking open-ended questions, it provides the kind of information that will be needed by everyone…… [Read More]

Also, there would be no related resentment issues in terms of Paula's additional training or supervision responsibilities. In terms of the employee viewpoint, this solution would probably be easier for George to implement, as only Paula's potential resentment will have to be handled, rather than the resentment of multiple employees.

In addition to a penalty system, it could also be a good idea to implement a reward system for excellence in performance. This would encourage employees to perform to the best of their ability while reducing any resentment as related to race or unfair treatment.

Implementation

Although more costly in terms of financial investment, the solution of transport is chosen as the best option in terms of the least disruption. Furthermore, the advantage is that the transport solution can be implemented for other workers who also face Paula's situation. This would improve the company's image as one that is concerned…… [Read More]

ood indicates that "everyone has different motivations and aspirations that they wish to achieve in their life. ork-life balance is about adjustments that can be made to working patterns to enable people to combine work with the other facets of their life. Bratton and Gold (2003: 105) de-ne work-life balance as, 'the relationship between the institutional and cultural times and spaces of work and non-work in societies where income is predominantly generated and distributed through labour markets.'" (p. 388) This implicates various aspects of one's working experience, including the manner in which one's responsibility's are balanced with one's personal needs; the degree to which social needs are constructed within the workplace; and the manner in which the employer goes about providing opportunities for attendance of personal needs for employees. This definition is also underscored by the basic assumption that employee morale and work/life balance are inextricable and that, additionally, these…… [Read More]

There also tends to be less bureaucracy and regulatory constraints for business growth. Businesses are often motivated, because of increased market competition, to serve the customer with expanded services and lower prices. The downside, of course, is that many individuals fall through the cracks of capitalist systems: people may work hard but not receive healthcare, private universities can charge very high tuitions, and elite universities only give scholarships if it suits their budgets. This can limit access to education and opportunities. There is less job security under capitalism, fewer benefits such as daycare to make life at home manageable for wives and husbands, and also less generous unemployment insurance. Finally, capitalist societies tend to be more reluctant to regulate entrepreneurial excesses, as was seen in the recent meltdown in the subprime mortgage industry.

Few systems operate purely on Marxist-controlled principles or Adam Smith 'invisible hand' ideals entirely, of course: the…… [Read More]
