What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Abbie Hunt Bryce Home

Imagine being given six months of less to live with nowhere to go and no one to care for you. This is the reality for many senior hospice individuals until they come to live at Morning Light’s Abbie Hunt Bryce Home. Our mission is fairly straightforward: The Abbie Hunt Bryce Home is a residence providing compassionate, respectful and dignified support to the senior citizens of Central Indiana who are terminally-ill and without financial resources. In essence, it is our mission to provide peace and comfort to those in their final days of life, regardless of means or social status.

What makes us different? We are not an institution, hospice home, or nursing home. Our Home is zoned as residential and is truly that. We serve between 45-75 terminally-ill individuals a year in our Home – at no cost to the individual! We do not require insurance or reimbursement as payment can be a barrier for receiving end of life care. Our home is “community owned and supported.”

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    We serve the terminally-ill with nowhere to live and no one to care for them at the end of life. We work in collaboration with hospice providers so they are able to serve their patients in a clean, safe, compassionate environment.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Paper surveys, Case management notes, In person survey,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We have created more communication methods between our healthcare partners and leadership team as having only one point of contact proved to be problematic. We also created Quality of Life Engagement Program in partnership with an Occupational Therapy Doctoral student to better enhance social engagement after receiving feedback that our residents wanted more interactions with staff and volunteers.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our staff, Our board,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    The relationships have strengthened and become more transparent by creating more open lines of communication and a greater access to decision makers for our residents and provider partners.

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

    We collect feedback from the people we serve at least annually, We engage the people who provide feedback in looking for ways we can improve in response, We act on the feedback we receive, We tell the people who gave us feedback how we acted on their feedback, We ask the people who gave us feedback how well they think we responded,
