Creating and Shaping Experiences of At-Homeness
What does it mean to feel at home? This webinar will define at-homeness and provide ways of fostering quality of living and thriving in all long-term care and living environments by focusing on specific experiences of at-homeness. The discussion will include actions that can be taken to create, shape and maintain those experiences.
- Define at-homeness and differentiate meanings of home as a place vs. a place-based experience vs. home as a process.
- Describe meaningful experiences of at-homeness.
- Discuss key action steps in creating and shaping experiences of at-homeness within the current practice setting at the individual level, group level, organizational level and policy level.
Dr. Molony received her BS in Nursing from Boston University, and her MS and PhD in Nursing from the University of Connecticut. She completed a Claire M. Fagin post-doctoral fellowship at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Nursing, sponsored by the Building Academic Geriatric Capacity initiative of the John A. Hartford Foundation. Dr. Molony’s program of research focuses on the relationship between at-homeness and thriving for older adults experiencing multiple co-occurring transitions (e.g. relocation to a residential long-term care setting due to decline in health or function).
