“I often hear from senior living professionals that they ‘can’t get their staff engaged’ with the residents with a regular basis. Having worked as a programming professional myself, I know that it often falls on the programming department to do the legwork when it comes to activities. Having worked in senior living, I also know that there’s a better way! I’ll be providing some tangible, actual tips and tricks you can implement to try new programming AND get your care staff more involved in resident day-to-day dementia programming.”
