One of the key challenges those in residential senior living face is the presumption of absent, rather than diminished, abilities. Residents may become accustomed to being on the receiving end of services even though strong leadership abilities exist among them. This is part 2 of a webinar series on how to engage residents, volunteers, family and staff in building communities of purposeful living through fostering a culture of resident engagement and peer support. In this webinar, you will have an opportunity to evaluate a mixed-methods study conducted to explore the outcomes of an innovative peer mentoring program in 10 continuing-care settings in Ontario. The webinar will offer a takeaway strategy to implementing peer mentoring within an organization that encourages residents to seek out and support their lonely isolated peers.
This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium of Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
