Webinar Description
How can you build true community by engaging Elders and the care team in new and innovative ways? Join us for this webinar as we discuss concepts that have worked in our homes to build vibrant communities that promote growth for all. We will discuss new ways to strengthen individualized approaches to protect and honor personal preferences through innovative programming methods. We will also define intentional spontaneity and outline the benefits and discuss how to build flexibility into the day.

Learning Objectives
  1. Identify new ways to promote identity throughout the community through concepts such as Hall of Fame Café, Taste of Hometown and Simply Me.
  2. Describe the benefit of "intentional spontaneity" and how flexibility builds empowerment in the community.
  3. Discuss innovative programming ideas that build engagement such as Summer Camps and Elder Vacations.
