Create a new expectancy of engagement, get to know each other better, discover that everyone is famous for something, and collect elders’ advice to create a Wisdom Book. Figure out how to do life with, not only for, those you serve. Don’t let quality of life get lost; it can’t be clinical care only.
In fact, now is the time to focus on meaning and purpose to boost immunity. Take advantage of this unique time to be better, together having grace with each other. Focus on the Eden Alternative® Domains of Well being for all (included in the new CMS requirements as well). Be refreshed with new ideas and stimulated to add some of your own to the list.
Why you should Attend
Although people must distance, they don’t have to disengage. Learn creative ways to actually engage residents and help everyone to be and feel connected. Be proactive in helping people through the second phase of the pandemic.
