Family Mentoring Council Meeting
A family council is an organized group of relatives and friends of a nursing home’s residents who meet on a regular basis to discuss
issues and concerns regarding the home. The main purpose of most family councils is to protect and improve the quality of life in
the home and to give families a voice in decisions that affect them and their loved ones in the facility. Specific purposes vary greatly from council to council. Some examples include: Support for families--Education and information--Discussion of concerns and
complaints--Services and activities for residents--Joint activities for families and residents
Effective family councils benefit families, residents, and the homes in which they are involved. Family councils allow families to give
each other the support, encouragement, and information they need. No one knows as well as a family member how difficult it is
to place a loved one in a nursing home. Even after placement, families continue to share
similar concerns, problems and questions. Council involvement helps provide family members an opportunity to express their
ideas and concerns and a way to work for positive change.
Residents of the home are also likely to benefit from the family council. Family involvement helps make a nursing home more
homelike. Residents also benefit from council efforts to improve the quality of life in the home. Family council involvement can
especially benefit residents who are physically or mentally unable to voice their concerns and needs for themselves.
The nursing home also receives benefits. Councils allow the nursing home staff to deal directly with family concerns and ideas, to
convey information to families, and to establish meaningful lines of communication. The nursing home administrative staff may be
able to use the family council as a sounding board for new ideas.
Maple Lawn will be initiating a Family Council February 12th at 11:00 am in the activity room. Please contact me if you have any
questions or would like to participate. Jana Vander Schaaf, Social Services, 507-425-2571

Cleaning Time Again
5 John Bothof
Every year we make an
effort to clean every corner
to keep our facility in tip
top shape. Family members
are an important part of
this effort and the support
provided can help to make
the cleaning less disruptive
and more successful.
Please help by:

2.) Cleaning drawers and
closets, and checking for
