CHIEF ENGAGEMENT OFFICERS: WHY IT’S TIME TO HIRE A NEW ‘CEO’

 

OVERVIEW: The most successful senior living communities understand that purposeful living begins with an understanding of the needs and preferences of each resident. When a community commits to investing in leadership and education around quality engagement, it’s time for the ‘Chief Engagement Officer’ (CEO) to step in. The first step is to define who’s in charge of engagement and nominate them as the ‘CEO’.  Participants will review areas of opportunities within their current organizations, understand the concept of resident engagement from a research and operational standpoint and leave with a road map to person-centered care and the experience they provide their residents.

HOW TO START RECREATIONAL THERAPY SERVICES AT SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES

 

 

OVERVIEW: Skilled Nursing Facilities including long term care and short-term rehabilitation units have been identified as one of the largest practice settings for recreational therapists. A common misuse of recreational therapists in these settings is placing them in activity director positions. Consequently, this professional trend has significant impacts on the future advancement of the RT profession. The purpose of this webinar is to convert traditional activity programs into physician referred recreational therapy services in SNF’s. Topics of discussion will include: thesis findings (administrative perspectives on RT), current professional issues that challenge the advancement of the RT profession, financial selling points, marketing strategies, and steps to consider when starting a RT program.

HEALTH PROMOTION: FOCUSED RECREATIONAL THERAPY STRATEGIES FOR OLDER ADULTS

 

 

OVERVIEW: Disabilities and multiple chronic conditions should receive health promotion opportunities through recreational therapy. “I Can Do It” is a national health promotion program funded through the President’s Council for Fitness Sports and Nutrition. At SRU, programs served older adults from 6-10 weeks to target individuals who needed more support than typically offered at the local senior center, nursing home residents with chronic mental health issues, and older adults with developmental disabilities living in group homes. The I Can Do It model is a promising practice that is replicable in other communities. University-community partnerships can both serve both older adults from diverse populations and the learning needs of students. This session will explore the evidence supporting the I Can Do It health promotion program, the funding, implementation, and evaluation of the program.

USING AN EVIDENCE BASED "BRAIN FITNESS" PROGRAM TO ADDRESS VARYING COGNITIVE ABILITIES OF OLDER ADULTS IN ALL SETTINGS

 

OVERVIEW: Older adult settings are changing rapidly, and recreation therapists have to adapt to current trends. Assisted living centers have increased admissions of lower functioning patients while there has been an influx of higher functioning residents into SNF’s due to financial constraints of living at an ILF or ALF. As recreation therapists, we have to be able to provide programming to meet varying cognitive abilities regardless of setting. This session is a “step by step” guide on how to start an evidence-based “Brain Fitness” program utilizing the APIED process which can be applied to any older adult setting. Cognitive and psycho-social benefits will be discussed along with related marketing.
