Elderly and disabled individuals in your care have the right to live free from abuse, neglect, exploitation and misappropriation of their property. Do you have systems in place to ensure the health, safety and well-being of your residents? Does your team recognize signs, symptoms and indicators of abuse/neglect? Are you following proper protocols when responding to allegations?  Given residents'  vulnerabilities, training staff to properly care for them, honor their wishes, and uphold their dignity are key aspects of ensuring their health and well-being. Join us to explore the following topics:

  • Quality of Life, Peace of Mind: How to Find, Promote & Keep Them
  • Overview of Abuse, Neglect, Exploitation & Misappropriation of Property
  • Responding to Allegations 
  • Tools & Resources for Educating Staff
  • Behavior is Communication
  • Pulling It All Together
