Create a list of long-term care programs or services you would like to observe, such as home-delivered meals, fitness classes, or transportation assistance. Submit the list to your instructor for approval before making arrangements to conduct the observation. After receiving approval, contact the program or service provider to schedule the observation as soon as possible. You will use the Observation Form for this task. The form is divided into four categories that will guide you in obtaining the information you need for your project. In the form, you will be asked to record information about the requirements that the program or service must adhere to, the publicâ€™s perception of the program or service, and the overall effectiveness of it. After conducting the observations, the Learning Teams will create a Community Newsletter in which they will provide their local community with information regarding the long-term care programs and services available to them. Team members will use the information from their observations to create the newsletter. Complete the Program or Service Observation Form to record your observations of the program or service. Each team member must submit this form with the final assignment. Note. Because these programs and services are designed for the public, you may visit as an interested observer and community resident or as a health care professional. If staff members do not welcome this type of visit, note this on the Observation Form, because relationships with the public are important aspects of quality programs.
