I would like someone in the Adult Family Home/Adult Boarding Home line of work to clear this up for me, please:
My current employer, who owns and operates a six-resident AFH, recently mentioned to me in regards to a high-functioning new admit who arrived last week; "She came to us with such a low rating. Try to do everything for her you can even if you know she can do it herself because every additional thing we have to do for her will raise her rating."
What, exactly, does that mean? It seems to fly directly in the face of what I was taught in CNA class about allowing a resident to do for themselves if they are able as much as they can to support prolonged independence.
