Speaking from Experience:
The Wisdom of Elders

Tuesday, June 23,
2015 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

The voices of people living in long-term care settings have been frequently missing from formal discussions and change efforts. Their voices help us to not only learn the extent to which person-centered practices are in place and experienced by residents, but also how important various actions and practices and environments are to them. Join us to hear the thoughts and reflections of two thoughtful and articulate elders currently living in care settings. Penny Shaw has lived in a nursing home for the past 12 years and Dick Weinman has lived in a nursing home and then skilled care and assisted living for the past 9 years. Their insights will be shared through a series of reflections on what it is to live meaningful lives, what they need and desire of care partners, what challenges they face, and how their lives have impact beyond the walls of their homes.

Learning Objectives:
  • Reconsider the importance and depth of information collected about residents relative to meaningful living.
  • Identify questions that may facilitate deeper conversation and learning with residents.
  • Think about and identify methods or systems for acting on the desires of residents.
