Working in skilled nursing, assisted living and ID/DD settings is incredibly rewarding. It is also stressful due to the demands and pressures faced on a daily basis. The workforce crisis and COVID-19 have exacerbated this stress creating even more challenges for those who work in long-term care. To help staff members manage those challenges, ahcancalED has launched two new online courses ideal for all frontline staff and leadership in long-term care facilities struggling with daily work and life stresses.  These courses are intended to be one tool in the toolbox to help improve staff retention. 

Self-Care: The Secret to Surviving!

This is an abbreviated course that includes an interactive quiz to help individuals measure their stress levels followed by strategies that can be individualized to cope with that stress.  

Managers and supervisors are encouraged to make this course available to staff members experiencing stress and to use the course as a preventative educational tool to help employees cope with inevitable work stresses. 

Cost: $25 for AHCA/NCAL members | $65 for non-members


This 34-minute learning session does not come with CEs.
