The household model of design seeks to recreate the core elements of a home environment for residents. While research generally suggests that household models are associated with more positive outcomes, a major limitation of the research is the lack of a standardized definition of, or tool to measure, the homelike character of a long-term care setting. The Environmental Audit Screening Evaluation (EASE) is an evidence-based tool designed to evaluate the discrete elements of household design in long-term care settings in a manner no other assessment tool offers. Learn how the instrument is used and see examples of environmental elements that may typically otherwise go unnoticed.
Identify core components of the Household model in long-term care.
Compare the different approaches of different tools for assessing long-term care environments.
Articulate at least two different ways the EASE tool can be used to enhance the well-being of residents in long-term care settings.
Evaluate how the EASE can be used in your practice or care setting.
