We also welcome opportunities to collaborate with others in exploring new possibilities. Kendal is well-known for its pioneering work in practicing and promoting restraint-free care through its national Untie the Elderly® program. Additional ways in which Kendal’s commitment to outreach has been expressed by community members, staff, and boards include: • giving leadership to the development of model statutes, regulations, and an accreditation system and standards for continuing care retirement communities; • collaborating in the creation and testing of computerized health and wellness assessment tools; • formulating model practice protocols for clinical care; • offering development programs for emerging leaders; • partnering with others to develop and disseminate research-based systems of evaluating client outcomes in long-term care settings; • collaborating in an increasingly wide array of creative, locally inspired initiatives. We recognize that as issues concerning older adults are addressed differently in the future, Kendal will need to continue to innovate so as to maximize quality of life for each person it serves for the longest possible period of time.
