Extended Congregate Care (ECC) Concepts & Requirements – 2 CEUs

It is important to allow residents, as they become more mentally impaired, the option of remaining in a familiar setting from the facility that they would otherwise be disqualified for continued residency; therefore it’s important to provide information to the Caregiver on the concepts and principles that make up the philosophy of care in an Extended Congregate Care licensed facility. Extended congregated care programs promote resident independence, dignity, choice and decision making.
