3.5 CEU's. Click here to register. Enter SDHCA promo code for your Member discount.

When trying to figure out what works and doesn’t work, their face is your teacher. Every person is unique so there can be no rules when figuring out how to tap into the person’s identity. Avoid playing out in your head whether something will work or not. Try anything and everything, and the experience will teach you. Remember they usually do not understand the words coming out of your mouth, but they are more likely to understand what they see, touch, smell and hear. So put “stuff” back in their hands and see if it triggers a response. It’s not about the big things we do. You’ll see that it’s about the simple pleasures ie: a smile. Whenever anyone finds something that causes a positive reaction…tell everyone. So…we ALL can create a better day. 


  • Webinar: Understanding and Meeting the Needs of the Elderly

3.25 CEU's.  Click here to registerEnter SDHCA promo code for your Member discount.

This program is designed to look at behavior problems as symptoms of external or internal unmet needs of the elderly, instead of behaviors that must be changed to meet caregivers' needs. Many older persons experience mental, emotional, and behavioral problems. One of the major problem is that they are often not diagnosed or treated. Some of the reasons for this is a false belief that mental symptoms are a part of the normal aging process, that these symptoms are not treatable or curable - a reflection of ageism - or because older people themselves are reluctant to admit their needs and to seek treatment and care from mental health professionals because of the stigma about mental illness.


  • Webinar: Infection Control in Long Term Care Facilities

3.5 CEUs. Click here to register.Enter SDHCA promo code for your Member discount.

Infectious disease is widespread among elderly people and the consequences are potentially devastating. Infections are a major cause of hospitalization for our aged and frail population, and they are known to suffer greater morbidity and mortality from infectious disease than younger adults. The elderly are at increased risk of infection because of multiple risk factors such as chronic diseases, age-related changes in every body system, nutritional status, mobility, and immunological function, as well as other less understood mechanisms.

This program has been developed to discuss how infectious diseases are transmitted, ways to prevent this transmission, and responsibility of care providers to take measures to prevent the spread of infection in LTC facilities.
