Long-Term Care Facility Project Instructions
Locate and contact a long-term care facility in your area. For this assignment, long-term care facilities include assisted living facilities, independent living facilities, or nursing homes. These should be residential living facilities. See your textbook for specific definitions.
Being mindful of the assignment due date in Module/Week 7, schedule a tour with a representative of the facility (administrator, director of nursing, admissions director, marketing, community or public relations representative, etc.), and obtain information according to the list of required slides provided below. Feel free to add other questions to your interview experience. Dress professionally and show gratitude to the long-term care facility representative for the time spent.
After completing your tour and interview, design a Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentation with a minimum of 10 slides that documents your observations, interview questions, and answers.
The PowerPoint slide content must follow the order of the outline below.
Creativity in design and appropriate use of pictures is encouraged.
On the last slide, reference any sources used (including personal interview with the facility’s representative) in current APA format.
PowerPoint slides must be in outline form (brief talking points). Type your narrative of your talking points, as if presenting, in the notes section below each slide.
The PowerPoint presentation will be submitted via the Module/Week 7 assignment submission link and in Discussion Board Forum 3 to be shared with your classmates.
Follow the outline provided below when creating slides for your PowerPoint presentation.
