Social Work/Dietary/Activity/CNA Webinar Series Keynote: The 11 Things You Can Control Every Day of Your Life

Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at 11AM CT

Learning Objectives:

  • 1. List 11 areas of daily life/routine that can be controlled by an individual.  2. Describe necessary strategies to effectively deal with change.  3. Describe strategies needed to make meaningful daily choices regarding time and activities.

Summary

We all know how it feels to lose control of our day. A resident has "issues" before you can even get into the door of the facility. Staff have left messages on your voice mail, and notes all over your desk. Families feel that you were hired "just for them..." And that's just at work!! What about when you get home? Feel like the world is spinning out of control? Ever said, "it's just out of my hands..."? Those thoughts can result in doubts about your abilities as a caregiver, devalue your worth as a person, foster a lack of confidence in your skills as a professional, and just plain "wear you out!" Whatever the events happen to be, there is little we can do to prevent them from occurring. However, we should realize that there are some things in life that we CAN control. We can prevent life's little diversions from completely derailing us day after day. This session will offer guidance and recommendations for exercising techniques to regain "control" of your life and work.

CNA Series | Bullying Among Older Adults: Not Just a Playground Problem

Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 11AM CT

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the incidence and characteristics of bullying behaviors.
  • Identify the five different types of bullies and their intended targets.
  • Describe the impact of bullying on older adults.
  • Identify organizational interventions that may help to minimize community bullying.

Summary

Bullying, defined as “a distinctive pattern of deliberately harming and humiliating others,” is an increasingly common problem among seniors. While the communal-living nature of senior living communities can open the door for socialization and friendship, it can also be the location of cliques, gossip, abuse and bullying behavior. It is estimated that between 10 and 20 percent of older adults living in senior living communities are mistreated by their peers, and often the behavior goes unreported or unnoticed by staff. Unfortunately, bullying is not just exhibited on the playground – it is a behavior that spans multiple demographics and age groups.

In this session, participants will learn the definition and incidence of bullying in adult living communities and day centers including what older adult bullying looks like in this population. Characteristics of older adult bullies as well their targets and gender differences will be explored. The reasons why bullying occurs as well as the five different types of bullies are defined.

The impact of bullying is detrimental to the health and well-being of our seniors. Even one instance can have a lasting impact! Therefore, it not enough just to define bullying – communities need to know the warning signs, the physical and emotional impact, and what to do if it happens to them. Therefore, interventions for the organization, the bully, and the target will be reviewed to help communities minimize (and prevent where possible) bullying and mitigate the effects on the target. Addressing bullying behavior among older adults is critically important for enhancing quality of life and promoting emotional well-being; strategies to create caring and empathic communities for all residents and staff members are reviewed.

CNA Series | Pain Management Strategies CNA's Can Implement

Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 5PM CT

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will demonstrate understanding of how the management of pain positively affects the quality of life of long-term residents.
  • Participants will demonstrate understanding of the definition & implementation strategies of non-pharmacological treatments for pain.
  • Participants will demonstrate understanding of signs, symptoms & behaviors of pain.

Summary

Pain, sometimes managed, sometimes unmanaged, is a common barrier to quality of life for elders residing in long-term care homes. Pain has significant and measurable negative effects on elders, but it can often times be alleviated through observations and care by direct care partners. As direct care partners, staff members closest to the elders observe when an elder is being effected by unmanaged pain. By empowering direct care partners through education and understanding, their value to the quality of life of all elders will be enhanced. This presentation will provide direct care partners with knowledge of multiple aspects of symptoms of pain, both objective and subjective, common misconceptions of pain, barriers to effective pain management, and appropriate non-pharmacological intervention for pain management to improve every elder's quality of life.

CNA Series | Creating a Culture of Customer Service

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at 11AM CT

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the core keys to excellent customer service through success stories
  • Discuss the importance of trust and safety in creating a culture of service
  • Learn strategies to deploy that can elevate your customer service and transform behavior

Summary

A favorite quote states “The customer may not always be right, but they are always the customer” – a stark difference to the more popular saying “the customer is always right”. The goal of excellent customer service is multi-faceted: ensure that your customer has the best possible experience, create loyalty and trust, and generate repeat business / referrals. Even when the customer is wrong, the goal of great service is to allow them to be wrong with dignity, and to elevate the business in the eyes of the customer. In this session, we’ll take key lessons from known “service savants”, discuss tangible strategies for creating a culture of service, and share ideas for transforming behavior to differentiate yourself.
