WEBINAR: Activity Director Refresher Six-Month Series (3 of 6) – Bullies in the Older Adult Care Setting

August 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Content

Bullying in older adult care settings across the nation has become a concern for all care givers. It is more common than we may expect and even the most critical eye may miss this behavior. We must always ask ourselves: Is this behavior related to the dementia disease process? Is it just this person’s personality? Am I being too sensitive?

How can caregivers and leadership teams educate and empower themselves to recognize bullying? How can caregivers and leadership teams intervene while protecting the rights of all older adults and maintain dignity and safety? Come to this session to learn how to address bullying in a confident and effective manner.
