The Illinois Pioneer Coalition is a passionate, all-volunteer organization dedicated to fostering dignity, meaningful engagement and a sense of home for anyone whose health requires that they live in a long-term care setting. The group is very judicious in how it spends grant dollars and has a network of 13 regional coalitions through which it can get greater reach of its training resources. There are now federal regulations incenting nursing homes for changing their organizational cultures by adopting more person-centered methods of care that enable residents, family members and staff to get to know one another at a deeper level. As a result, Illinois Pioneer Coalition is well situated as a resource from which nursing home providers can learn how to fulfill the new requirements in meaningful ways.
