COBOURG, Ont. – Enhancing quality of life for Streamway Villa residents takes a collaborative, team approach, says Sarah Wilson, the Cobourg long-term care home’s Behavioural Supports Ontario registered practical nurse (BSO RPN).

In today’s OMNIway video, Wilson discusses Streamway Villa’s BSO program, what it is, and how it works to enhance residents’ quality of life. She also underscores the importance of using a collaborative approach from staff members in all departments to create person-centred care with positive outcomes.

“The collaboration is very important because it provides that person-centred care, consistent care, and continuity of care for the best possible outcome and for quality of life for that person,” Wilson says.

“If everybody is on the same page, then you know that they’re going to be (giving) good care all of the time.”
