Jo Scudder loves books and children. She especially loves to bring them together as she did for many years in her career as a children’s librarian. Through an attentive staff caregiver named Dani and a PHS program known as Liberty Dreams, Jo, who lives at Johanna Shores Gables care center in Arden Hills, MN, was able to go to the local library and do what she loves.
Liberty Dreams is a popular facet of Liberty Personally Designed Living™, the PHS resident-centered model of care that recognizes and values independent choice, and creates opportunities for each person to determine how they wish to live within the community setting. Liberty encourages staff to form meaningful relationships with the people they serve and set their priorities and work routines to support resident preferences. As staff spends time with residents, learning about the life stories, family, passions of each resident, they often discover what a resident’s Liberty Dream might be and how to make it come true.
