    This conversation will inspire a new leadership perspective, moving all leaders to be creative and tenacious in meeting the challenges of the emerging culture of AL/RCF. Registration is $25 for AHCA/NCAL Member. Receive $10 off registration fee when purchasing four webinars. If you are not able to attend live, the recording will be provided to you. A certificate of attendance will be available after webinar. (No CEs)

    OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the culture of AL/RCF care relative to behavioral health, quality care, and quality of life;
    2. Apply the concept of transformational leadership and explain the benefits to workforce development;
    3. Explain the value of mastering Emotional Intelligence (EI) to improve morale, social, and work-related interactions; and
    4. Create an environment of care that speaks to the quality of life of everyone living and working in the community.

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: Leadership, Managers, Supervisors

    AL/RCF leaders are traumatized, fatigued, disillusioned and, in some cases, hopeless to recover from the COVID-19 Pandemic. With many seasoned leaders opting out of the next chapter of AL/RCF, valuable experiential knowledge and support is out of reach for a new generation of leaders. What will the AL/RCF community of tomorrow look like? Do you know where your organization is headed or how you will attract and sustain the workforce you’ll need to meet the needs of future customers? 

    This conversation will inspire a new leadership perspective, moving all leaders to be creative and tenacious in meeting the challenges of the emerging culture of AL/RCF. The concept of transformative leadership and strategies every leader should consider in creating an environment of care that speaks to the needs and satisfaction of everyone living and working in the community is the focus of this session.

    This session provides strategies for anticipating the circumstances and events that may trigger negative interactions in a diverse community of residents, offering new thinking on how to achieve an environment of healing and recovery for today, and tomorrow. Registration is $25 for AHCA/NCAL Member. Receive $10 off registration fee when purchasing four webinars. If you are not able to attend live, the recording will be provided to you. A certificate of attendance will be available after webinar. (No CEs)

    OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic relative to quarantine and social distancing on psychosocial well-being;
    2. Develop a well-trained, culturally competent staff prepared to meet the behavioral health needs of a diverse and ever-changing population; and
    3. Implement effective interventions to anticipate and minimize the potential for aggression and altercations.

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: Appropriate to all disciplines and positions

    While there has been increasing attention to the subject of abuse prevention in long-term care, aggression between residents is rarely recognized as a significant concern. Too often, negative and aggressive physical, sexual, or verbal interactions that in any other community setting would likely be construed as unwelcome and potentially leading to physical or psychological distress are overlooked.

    The COVID-19 Pandemic has added an additional layer of stress to an already volatile environment. Heightened anxiety, depression, loneliness, and cabin fever have resulted in an increase in dissatisfaction and social unrest. This session provides strategies for anticipating the circumstances and events that may trigger negative interactions in a diverse community of residents, offering new thinking on how to achieve an environment of healing and recovery for today, and tomorrow.

    CONTENT:

    1. Review of the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the long-term care industry;
    2. Discussion on the circumstances (i.e., clinical, social) motivating social unrest and the steps
      necessary to creating an inclusive, satisfying environment; and 
    3. Strategies for proactive assessment and care planning to minimize the potential for disputes and aggressive behavior.

    This discussion offers innovative ways to improve the social culture, while offering support for the independence and autonomy that is so vital to quality of life. Registration is $25 for AHCA/NCAL Member. Receive $10 off registration fee when purchasing four webinars. If you are not able to attend live, the recording will be provided to you. A certificate of attendance will be available after webinar. (No CEs)

    Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the impact of the changing demographics in assisted living on quality of life and quality of care;
    2. Explain the increasing complexity of social and ethical considerations in matters concerning socialization, productivity, and therapeutic engagement; and 
    3. Develop a culturally competent community prepared to meet the needs of a diverse population.

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: Appropriate to all disciplines and positions

    Social isolation and loneliness are serious yet largely unrecognized public health risks that affect significant numbers of disabled and older adults. Many of these adults are socially isolated or lonely in ways that puts their health at risk. Assisted living communities often represent a more desirable lifestyle over home care or other long-term care environments, insulating residents from the realities of dementia and more advanced physical dependency. While the community culture may be more satisfying, the independence associated with the assisted living lifestyle lends itself to diminished socialization and engagement. This discussion offers innovative ways to improve the social culture, while offering support for the independence and autonomy that is so vital to quality of life.

    CONTENT:

    1. Discussion on the changing demographics in assisted living and the effect on quality of life and quality of care; 
    2. Analysis of the increasing complexity of social and ethical considerations in matters concerning social groups and cultural integration; and
    3. Strategies for creating an environment that supports a quality existence.

    This discussion explores the clinical and social influences to be considered in the assessment of and response to the behavioral health needs of the community. Accommodating the needs of the next generation requires an understanding of today’s customer – far more independent, outspoken and likely to march to the beat of their own drummer. Strategies for addressing issues relative to dementia and mental health, social conflicts/bullying/aggression, substance abuse, and related concerns are a focus of this conversation.

    OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

    1. Explain the increasing complexity and cultural influence on social and ethical considerations in matters concerning behavioral health, sexual expression, and substance use in assisted living communities;
    2. Describe the importance of understanding the symptoms and challenges associated with a diagnosis of Dementia, PTSD, Mental Disorder, or Substance Use Disorder; and
    3. Develop a well-trained, culturally competent, trauma-informed staff prepared to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population.

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: Appropriate to all disciplines and positions

    The contemporary long-term care community is challenged to address a broad range of emerging clinical and psychosocial considerations, as the next generation of resident is far more complex. In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, many older adults report feelings of depression and anxiety, turning to substance use, and thoughts of suicide. The numbers of people impacted by dementia continues at epidemic rates, further complicating the contemporary adult care community’s ability to create an environment that is satisfying to an increasingly diverse population.

    Understanding the symptoms of illness and the psychosocial manifestations of trauma are two critical elements to creating a livable environment. This discussion explores the clinical and social influences to be considered in the assessment of and response to the behavioral health needs of the community. Accommodating the needs of the next generation requires an understanding of today’s customer – far more independent, outspoken and likely to march to the beat of their own drummer. Strategies for addressing issues relative to dementia and mental health, social conflicts/bullying/aggression, substance abuse, and related concerns are a focus of this conversation.
