Person-centered care Programming for Retired Religious

Designing programs for those we care for must be grounded in person-centered care. This care, based on the needs and strengths of the sisters and brothers we care for, goes beyond the "check mark" of an assessment. Providing person-centered care is vital, giving meaning and fulfillment to the lives of our elders, allowing them a sense of purpose as they age.

During this 1 hour webinar, Sr. M. Peter Lillian Di Maria, O.Carm. will discuss the importance of person-centered care programming and the best practices for designing and implementing quality programs. Alfred Norwood, President of Behavior Science, Inc. will accompany Sr. Peter to discuss the effect of aging on developing person centered programming.  

This program is recommended for those in elected leadership and those who are in ministry to their retired members.
