“Living well: Helping residents & families make the most of their days” online workshop

Cheryl Smith By Cheryl Smith  |  October 9, 2020  |  All providers

Helping residents and their families live as well as possible in long-term care is a challenge in the best of times. The social isolation, visitation restrictions, and other limitations imposed in long-term care because of the COVID-19 pandemic have placed additional burdens on everyone: staff, residents, and their families and loved ones.  
How can we provide care that helps the residents get the most out of their days, given the continuing limitations and restrictions? Care Providers of Minnesota is pleased to welcome Frank Bennett, founder and program leader of Living Well/Dying Well and senior teaching fellow at the Center for Spirituality & Healing, back for the last session in his four-part online workshop series. In October’s online workshop, we will explore attunement as an approach to helping improve resident and family satisfaction. We will also review the role of culture in addressing resident quality of life.
