Abstract
Family members of residents living in long-term care facilities are important contributors to the evaluation of long-term care, leading to improved care. The aim of this study was to explore family perceptions of care and satisfaction from community-based long-term care settings in Hawaii that promoted resident-centred care through the promotion of ageing in place policies. This study builds upon a prior family satisfaction study conducted in Aoteoroa New Zealand. Eighty-two family member participants completed a 31-item Family Satisfaction Scale and answered one overall satisfaction question. The Spearman’s correlation demonstrated a positive and significant correlation (p < 0.001) between each of the domains of family satisfaction and the overall satisfaction rating. Nursing care was most strongly correlated to overall satisfaction, followed by individual patient support, family involvement, activities, cleanliness, meals, resident safety, and finally medical attention. Overall, the family members were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of care in the Aging in Place facilities which was comparable to the work undertaken in aged care facilities in Aotearoa New Zealand. Nursing care plays a critical role in family satisfaction. The components of nursing care and how this informs family satisfaction needs to be further explored.
