Dr. Forster Impressed With Continued Excellence

April 10, 2009

Latham has been working with Dr. Janice Forster to find new ways to improve upon our PWS programming. Following her visit this fall, Action Groups were created that focused on specific areas and looked at ways to fine tune what we are already doing. These groups are a mixture of adult and children’s staff, administators, supervisors, nursing and direct care staff. This is an all agency drive to excellence. There are five groups that are presently in existence and who meet bi-weekly to discuss the issue and strategize a plan for the future. The five groups are focused on training, recreation, diet, facilities and behavior.

On April 1, Dr. Forster returned to Latham to check on our progress during an all staff meeting held at the Brewster Ladies Library. Over this two hour meeting, the five groups were able to report on their individual progress and all of the Latham community was able to share in the general discussion. This was a very positive, vibrant meeting that left all who attended feeling refreshed, focused and intent on creating positive change. Look for reports from each of these groups in upcoming postings.
