CONFERENCE INTENSIVE | 1:30 - 5 pm

Nurses & Administrators are two of the most vital roles in a care community. As a nurse, your role as a leader, a manager, and a mentor is valuable to the growth and welfare of your organization. As an administrator, your ability to lead your team hinges upon understanding their challenges and encouraging their development. Long-term care today is plagued by the constant turnover of nursing staff, from charge nurses to managers to directors. With the myriad regulatory requirements of long-term care, daily operations are generally the focus of nurses’ attention, frequently at the expense of opportunities to develop the management skills necessary to successfully lead a team.

Experts in the field will walk attendees through this conference intensive, diving into practical solutions for rising above the day-to-day details, allowing nurse leaders to better lead their staff, and provide exceptional resident care.

We are born to relate, to connect, and to bond. The most noble of human relationships is compassion. No other profession is as closely associated with the virtue of compassion as is eldercare.

The answers to these questions will be discussed during this session. We will look at how compassion interfaces with the five universal needs and yearnings that make each of us human, and consider the role that compassion plays in the life of the elders as well as their families, caregivers and support staff.

CFOs know only too well that a Life Plan Community with a full census, but an average move-in age in the mid-80s, is not performing as well as it could. A high average move-in age means high annual turnover, which fuels high marketing budgets and lost monthly fee revenue. This session will provide practical direction on the key marketing and sales strategies that sales teams use to reach and motivate prospects to move because they want to move, rather than waiting until they are forced to move by a health scare. The session will also discuss fundamental program and product enhancements that all Life Plan Communities should consider if they want to attract younger residents.
