Creating unity for positive change in nursing homes, Michelle Arnot's Guest Column in McKnight's

Federal regulators’ recently proposed rule on nursing home minimum staffing standards seems to have exacerbated the divisiveness among the various stakeholders in the aging services field.

In an effort to be a catalyst for positive change — change that comes through unified approaches and balanced discourse — Gray Panthers NYC (GPNYC) is committed to bringing people and organizations together to break out of the group think of the status quo that appears to be keeping us at odds with each other and therefore unable to find common ground.

To this end, more than two years ago, we began holding webinars with panels of diverse stakeholders for the purpose of fostering dialogue that will help us improve care in nursing homes so that they become places where person-directed care is a priority for everyone.
