Aging Sensitivity Training & Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program (LTCOP)

This combination seminar includes a hands on training program that will help you to become more empathetic and understanding when assisting aging persons. We will review the five senses and how they change as we age. We will also discuss the role of the Ombudsman Program in advocating for residents in long-term care facilities who are going through these changes. It makes sense that the more aware you are of what the person may be experiencing, the more effective you may become in relating to the person. In many long-term care facilities residents equate their quality of care and quality of life with how nicely the staff treated them. A kind word goes a long way!
