COVID-19 has truly exposed the life-sustaining need for social engagement in our elderly population. The activity professional has stepped up and met the challenge during this unprecedented event. Through the use of technology, creative approaches and innovative adaptations, the psychosocial and functional needs of our senior population have been met in this time of crisis.
Join Comagine Health for a session featuring activity professionals who will share their experiences from the front line and explore the current state of social engagement within our care communities in relation to regulatory expectations and guidance. We will review the positive takeaways of this experience and how social engagement will forever be changed in a care community.
