Goal 3 Strategies

  • Ask the member about what is important to them to address during the first few days, such as obtaining medication, informing loved ones of their location, or washing clothes.


  • Keep a clothing closet for members that is orderly and contains clean clothes.


  • Ask about medication needs and any other time-sensitive medical needs and take needed steps to address them. 


  • Give new members a list of options for what they could do in their first few days in the program, such as rest or meet other residents, and ask them to outline their preferred schedule.


  • Let new residents know what must be done within a limited time-frame, such as completing paperwork, and ask them when they’d like to do it.
