What is ResoLute?

ResoLute is an innovative, upstream, palliative approach that seeks to provide residents and their loved ones more time to successfully address Work of Aging milestones.

What is the Work of Aging?

The Work of Aging is used to describe conversations or actions that support one in reaching late life milestones for the mind, body and spirit.

Program funding allows for a newly created Quality in Living Specialist (QILS) position. The QILS will have dedicated time and training to facilitate timely and truthful conversations with residents, their loved ones and the care team. These conversations will seek to discover and reconcile resident priorities, fears, and wishes on the Work of Aging conversation topics. The outcome of these conversations will help us discover what matters most to our resident and their loved ones and then create care plans that provide the opportunity for the resident to achieve successful aging and live life to the fullest.
