Laura Tamblyn Watts has a mantra for her work in eldercare reform: Be kind and be useful. The temperature around long-term care reform debates can often rise into rancor – understandably so, given the abuse and death that too often occurs in the setting, particularly in the wake of COVID. But Tamblyn Watts believes that we'll collectively go farther if we operate with the understanding that so many of us, no matter our exact ideas about the future, believe in the same thing: a completely transformed eldercare landscape and a world free of abuse and neglect. She joined “Elevate Eldercare” to discuss her work as president and CEO of CanAge, a Canadian organization that seeks to unify and amplify the voices of those calling for change in long-term care. While there are some differences between the challenges in the U.S. and in Canada, we found there were a lot more opportunities for collaboration and mutual understanding – and being kind and useful knows no national border.

The State of Resident Engagement in 2022 with Linked Senior leader Charles de Vilmorin.---------Register for the Feb. 1st Activities Strong Webinar featuring Charles Turner, CEO of KARE and James Lee, Co-Founder and CEO of Bella Groves HERE.---------Resident engagement has become a core business senior living priority, is foundational to person-centered care and has been shown to be effective for decades and yet remains the least managed side of our senior living operations. Asked about how they manage life enrichment, 90%+ of senior living professionals will describe a person-centered approach that uses the Wellness model and a passionate team of professionals – but will lack evidence on business processes to improve, data to measure and manage and an organization wide framework to advance resident engagement.This episode provides nationwide benchmarks, showcase easy to implement tools such as the SWOT framework, the newly developed Elder Engagement Performance Index (EEPI) and lessons from the trenches on how providers may shift the paradigm to improve resident engagement, maximize quality of life and finally get credit for life enrichment from other departments, as well as existing and prospective family members.Listeners will be able to:• Understand the current state of resident engagement, its challenges and how to optimize the experience provided to Elders• Apply evidence-based business and resident engagement frameworks that will optimize life enrichment within 45 days including the newly designed 85/35 rule of resident engagement• Shift the paradigm forever and enable the path to the social prescription modelOld People Are Cool Listen to the Activities Strong podcast on the BTG Network.Powered by Linked Senior.Produced by Solinity Marketing.
Telehealth, telemedicine, virtual care, eConsult, store-and-forward….are all new terms that have been introduced to the senior living field recently and providers can quickly find themselves feeling overwhelmed by the various approaches and applications to meet their residents, teams and health care provider unique needs.

In this episode, Amber Bardon is joined by Josh Hofmeyer, Vice President and General Manager - Senior Care Services with Avel eCare and David Darr, National Director of Sales and Client Relations of Avel eCare to unpack all things telehealth. Josh and David breakdown of all the terminology around telehealth, best use of applications based on care setting and best practices for selecting partnerships and implementation.

70% of people with Alzheimer's or another type of dementia will wander at some point in time due to poor short-term memory. ‘Wandering' means getting lost by moving away from where they're typically located, whether it's driving or walking. This can be dangerous when they're unable to find their way back and risk their safety or being taken advantage of. This is where the Safe Return MedicAlert® program comes in. Tanesha Tyler-Carr of the Alzheimer's Association rejoins Senior Living Expert Lori Williams for the final installment of the 3-part Alzheimer's series in 2021. She explains the role of Safe Return in reuniting families with their wandering loved one - continuing to draw from her experience with one-on-one care planning, crisis management and referral for families affected by Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. Takeaways from this episode: - The Safe Return Medic Alert Program is through the Medic Alert Foundation. It supplies medical ID bracelets for those who unsafely wander and provides a 24-hour emergency response. - Once a senior becomes a member, they get an ID card with their number that connects to a database with their name, emergency contact, physical description and more. - Some chapters of the Alzheimer's Association offer a scholarship program for the initiation and annual renewal fee costs.

The senior living industry is unique for the value it holds, the population it serves and the workforce it is made of. Eleanor Alvarez, CEO at LeaderStat, discusses basic tenets of person-centered care, how organizations can drive them in their staffing strategies and what 2022 might look like for our industry.As this industry continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, and braces for a deepening staffing crisis, it is essential for providers to attract, retain and cultivate talent. An essential part of achieving this is often overlooked even though it is the single most common denominator of success from leading providers: focusing on staff and resident engagement as an intertwined and winning collaboration.Team members are deeply connected to elders and drawn to serve and collaborate with them because they are unique human beings that deserve dignity and respect like any other member of society. This session will focus on how senior living operators can navigate the current staffing crisis by helping team members understand their clients better and engage them every day in a way that is meaningful and purposeful.

Last year, Patricia MacNeil and her family started a campaign called Jammies for Grammies, which buys pajamas for folks in long-term care homes, for Christmas. She spoke with host Jeff Douglas about why she's giving back in the name of her daughter Alyssa.
We hear how the Red Cross 'Friendly Calls' program is offering social support for folks in isolation through the pandemic.
Who knew getting older could be so funny? In the 1960's gerontologist Robert Butler told us that thinking back over our lives is therapeutic. He termed his method of reminiscence, “Life Review”. Through a life review, experiences from the past, particularly the unresolved conflicts, can be resolved and reintegrated into our life experience. There is also substantial research pointing to the benefits of humor. Humor has been found to lower blood pressure, increase pain threshold, and improve the immune system. Humor reduces cortisol and increases endorphins in our systems. It also helps us gain perspective, sharpen our memory, and allows us to forgive ourselves and others. Story and laughter bring people together. Enter, Mary Clohan, a stand-up comedian and graduate student in New York University's program for Drama Therapy. Mary decided to combine these two healing processes. For her Masters' thesis, she examined the process and benefits of what she calls, “Laugh Review.” On this week's Twisting the Plot Podcast we hear from Mary and five of her actor/subjects, all residents of Penn South, “a naturally occurring retirement community” located in NYC, fondly referred to as NORC. Take a listen and laugh along with us. We are honored to have the following participants on this podcast: Hilda Aronson, Michael Bournas-Ney, Martin Sturm, Florence Cohen, and Harriet Kriegel. Cast Bios: Mary Clohan is a writer, performer, teaching artist and recent graduate of the NYU Master's Program in Drama Therapy. She has been performing stand-up comedy and improv comedy around NYC for the past 4 years and is interested in the therapeutic potential of humor and comedy within the creative arts therapies. Reach out to Mary Clohan via email at firstname.lastname@example.org Hilda Aronson - Hilda had her 89th birthday six months ago and, being in very poor health, or lack thereof, is very proud of her highest achievement: simply being alive. Personal and professional successes lose importance. Giving and receiving an abundance of love, that's what she identifies with. All the rest is illusion. Michael Bournas-Ney - Michael premiered as an actor in first grade, when he played the part of a washcloth. (His friend was a bar of soap.) He loves humor and was thrilled to be part of Mary's stand-up class. Martin Sturm - Martin is now a playwright, standup comedian, and actor. These are accomplishments that he didn't think were possible, in all his wildest dreams. Florence Cohen - Florence is a lifelong closet comedian who always tried to keep companions amused. She is also a current abstract painter and a senior trying to keep up with a constantly changing world. Harriet Kriegel - Harriet began as a high school English teacher, moved to health care, and became Vice President of Public Affairs, Development, and Marketing at The Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged. After retiring, she joined the Board of Penn South Social Services, which sponsors the Penn South Program for Seniors, where she has become involved with theatre and acting, discovering new talents, and doing Stand-Up Comedy. It is a thrill to discover a new skill when you are 87!

We have some ideas for last-minute Christmas gifts for seniors. Here's the thing: we think your mother/father/grandparent would mostly like to hear from you. A regular message is better than candy -- even better than flowers. We've made recommendations for gifts in the past. Some of those have come from our own experience with family members. Others are reports from clients about what has worked well. But our best ideas are more about regular contact than new stuff. Not that stuff won't be appreciated. We also have some ideas about the best ways to visit with your aging family member. Consider the limitations they might have in vision or hearing. Give some thought to going to their place rather than bringing them to large family gatherings. But don't skip getting together with them just because it can be challenging. Of course, in pandemic times you also have to be concerned with safety. It may be easier to maintain distance in a series of smaller visits to your elderly relative's home or apartment. Spreading the visits out, and keeping them small, might be safer and more generous. Christmas gifts for seniors can be difficult, no doubt. Didn't you give slippers last year? How much candy do they need. But there's no limit to the amount of loving contact they can use.

Join us for a Holley Jolly Fun-Filled Christmas with Santa Claus but don't take us too serious because we're not, even if we try! Santa Claus, joins the Aging GreatFULLy show to tell us how things really are behind the scenes at the North Pole. But be forewarned, it's not a show for the young boys and girls because Santa, aka, my brother, Del Kelley, talks about liquored-up reindeer, what really happens at the Kringle Mingle, and some other surprises I didn't see coming! You'll be able to tell it was hard to keep my composure throughout a lot of this dialogue because my brother -- I mean Santa -- has that effect on me. It's a good thing that laughter is the best medicine!With the year we've had, the challenges we often face, struggles life can throw our way, I hope this episode allows you to get lost in some imaginative Christmas fun and lose yourself in a laugh or two. This episode is meant to entertain; I acknowledge that my jokes are bad but my hopes are to simply take your mind off of things and bring some enjoyment into your life and make your Yuletide merry! Our family laughs a lot, at each other, at life, and at ourselves. There's something to be said for laughter. I believe we can't get enough of it.Santa shares how to make the "Nice List" and what he does with all those letters he receives! And he also answers the big question we're all wondering -- will Rudulph lead the sleigh again this year? It's a big reveal from beginning to end, including what he does during his off time, what he wears when he's not outfitted in the red suit, and so much more surprising North Pole News you'll only hear here!There's some serious aspects of this show too, hidden amidst the narratives, humor and creative imaginings. Santa reminds us about the true meaning of this sacred and Glorious season. And the empirical value of kindness, and how each day offers a new opportunity to begin again with a fresh beginning. And Santa shares the importance of forgiveness too as he talks about the Naughty to Nice List system implemented at the NP. Christmas reminds us of the importance of sharing our generosity of spirit with others but Santa asks us to remember to do this year round. The gift of Christmas is a wonderful one to celebrate. So, I hope you laugh along with us through corny jokes, an atypical Santa, childlike imagination and wonder and join in our holiday cheer and celebrate this time of year with lots of fun and lightheartedness alongside us! May your Christmas be merry, bright, healthy, happy, full of laughter and love! Thank you, amazing Aging Rebels, for listening to the Aging GreatFULLy show! We create this show for YOU the listener!

Third, we do an in-depth preview of Saturday's Lending Tree Bowl between the Eastern Michigan University Eagles and the Liberty Flames.

The Connected Yoga Teacher Podcast 249: Yoga for Older Grownups with Maria Kirsten Description: Have you considered teaching older grownups as your niche in yoga? Many yoga teachers have not, and may feel some fear or apprehension when it comes to teaching people in older bodies. In this episode, Maria Kirsten sheds some light on what teaching yoga to older grownups can be like. Maria Kirsten was a yoga therapist working mainly with pain and mental health, and offered yoga classes to grownups and older grownups in her community. She also taught teacher trainings about how to support older grownups and regarding general mental health. For Maria, the focus was always on intelligent movement that reconnects people to the joy of being alive in their bodies, and helping people connect with the intuitive wisdom of the body, and nurturing their innate capacity to heal through simple, joyful movement. Maria shares openly about what inspired her to start teaching yoga for older grownups and how her classes are structured. Maria addresses the fear and caution that some yoga teachers may feel when it comes to teaching older bodies, and gives advice on things to avoid in a yoga class with older people. She explains the mental health benefit yoga can have, and also talks about some of the words that can be triggering for older grown ups. This interview was so valuable in understanding what teaching yoga to older grownups can be like and how to approach teaching this group of people. Note: This interview was conducted in January 2021, and Maria passed away back April 2021. The information she shared was invaluable, and we are glad to be able to share this interview with you now. Key Takeaways: [5:08] Shannon introduces her guest for this episode - Maria Kirsten. [10:24] Shannon gives a shout out to Schedulicity and a listener who left a review. [15:33] How did Maria come up with the name Yoga for Grown Ups? [17:21] What is the age range for grownups vs. older grownups? [18:55] What does Maria usually teach in classes for older grownups? [20:10] Shannon and Maria discuss some of the fears and lack of confidence older people have, particularly around falling.

Quotes from this episode: "The biggest risk for falling is fear of falling." "The thing is not to be scared of older people. If you give them the education and tell them what you're doing and why then they can make educated choices about what options they'll take or when they'll rest and then they feel really empowered." "Don't underestimate what people are getting [out of your yoga class]." "Only you know when enough is enough or too much is too much." "Mental health is a spectrum and the thing that people don't understand, I think, about mental health, is that they don't just get it for free. People are really shocked when mental health isn't fantastic all the time." "As teachers were trying to empower people in the class, but we're also trying to empower them to do home practice because as soon as they practice on their own at home, everything changes."
