COURSE DESCRIPTION

For most senior living communities, creating social connections and resident engagement are almost routine and taken for granted as part of programming. That is, until a pandemic drastically restricts gathering and socializing and, along with them, the emotional and physical benefits of engagement.

While senior living communities have always faced periodic and extended infection-control protocols – sometimes shutting down group programming as during COVID-19 – there is no reason to end engagement programs. Regardless of how strict protocols become, every team needs a toolbox of safe options to leverage at every phase.

Get inspired and share your own successes as we explore the Safe Engagement Toolbox that starts with the strictest in-apartment protocols and gradually moves toward less restrictive phases. Engagement and socialization are essential to well-being and survival, but there are practical and doable solutions even in the most challenging situations.

Join this webinar to:

  • Understand the social and physical benefits of meaningful interactions and activities.

  • Spark creativity in developing safe community programming that engages even during the strictest protocols.

  • Share ideas, successes, and lessons learned during the pandemic to create practical and doable engagement programming.

Benjamin is passionate about designing powerful user experiences for elders and the people who serve them. As a social gerontologist, he spearheads initiatives to re-think and re-build — opening the first lifelong learning center in partnership with a YMCA and with elders driving the program decisions. He shapes innovative engagement experiences for seniors, as well as specialized programming for people living with dementia, including in-demand educational experiences for professionals and families, and building onboarding and training for 2,000+ dementia professionals.
