Living well: Helping Residents & Families
Living well: Helping Residents & Families
Product Code: 2040W

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 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.

Learning objectives
  • Identify an approach to helping improve resident and family satisfaction using existing resources
  • Explore attunement as a means to address resident quality of life
  • Describe role of culture in addressing resident quality of life
