WEBINAR: Activity Director Refresher Six-Month Series (2 of 6) – On the Horizon: Serving Co-Occurring Populations in Older Adult Settings

July 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Content

Substance abuse, particularly of alcohol and prescription drugs, among baby boomers is one of the fastest growing health issues facing our country. Some seek treatment while many do not; and when the need arises for long- term care, unmet needs arrive at the older adult setting. Coupled with mental health issues, care provision can be complex. Are you equipped to provide supportive services, arrange Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and integrate a complex case mix? Putting the pieces together, this webinar offers practical tips from the field, resources to equip group leaders, and an overview of co-occurring diagnoses of mental health and addiction with a goal of building community.

Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify three facts of alcohol and drug abuse in older adults
  2. Summarize reasons of alcohol and drug abuse in older adults
  3. Analyze two case studies related to mental health and addiction diagnoses
  4. Discuss appropriate program interventions for co-occurring populations in older adult settings

 Audience

This program is appropriate for activity directors, life enrichment coordinators, and activity personnel in all assisted living and nursing facilities.
