Safe Care for Seniors Action Honor Roll Announced

Fifty-one LeadingAge Minnesota members have been named to the Safe Care for Seniors Action Honor Roll. The Action Honor Roll recognizes aging services providers who have made the Safe Care for Seniors pledge and demonstrated action and outcomes in prevention, safety, respect, learning and improvement, and collaboration.  

“Safe Care for Seniors is a new way of thinking and taking action to prevent the risk of harm that can occur in the course of caregiving,” said Gayle Kvenvold, President & CEO, LeadingAge Minnesota. “These 51 providers are modeling the Safe Care for Seniors pledge in ensuring the older adults they serve are safe from harm and that all who live and work in their settings are treated with respect and dignity."

Safe Care for Seniors is a comprehensive safety and quality improvement program focused on prevention. The program, created by LeadingAge Minnesota in 2019, begins with a commitment pledge to safety, respect and dignity. It is then followed by implementation of a five-step action plan that includes leadership accountability, designated safety champions, identifying and addressing improvement opportunities, enhanced transparency, communication and collaboration with residents and families, and an ongoing commitment to report, learn and improve from near miss events or when something unexpected happens.

More than 450 aging services providers have made the Safe Care for Seniors Pledge. The Action Honor Roll recognizes the first 51 providers to complete the intensive five-step action plan. LeadingAge Minnesota will recognize providers who complete the plan on a quarterly basis.

“Through Safe Care for Seniors, our members are improving the quality of care and services they provide, empowering staff to respond appropriately in difficult or unexpected situations, and enhancing relationships with the older adults and families they serve - all of which contribute to safe, inclusive and trusted environments that provide a high quality of life."
