Addressing Stress and Anxiety Resulting from the COVID-19 Pandemic
Wednesday, April 1st
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EDT
Now, more than ever, staff need outlets for their own stress and anxiety in order to prevent those emotions from impacting their residents. Residents who will suffer the stress of not being permitted to visit with friends and family, attend group activities or eat their meals in the dining room will cause a variety of reactions. This session focuses on anticipating and addressing the “cabin fever” that is sure to impact everyone concerned – residents, staff, and their families. This webinar is free, but prior registration is required. To register, please click here.
