Conversations with Carmen
- November 18, 2016: Vibrant Living for Men, Compliance for Communities
- Guest: Glenn Blacklock, LNHA, Action Pact Consultant
Known nationally for his work bringing normal life pursuits to nursing home residents, Glenn will guide us in exploring options to help men live more vibrant and satisfying lives. As we know, men tend to get “lost in the shuffle” in the myriad of activity offerings that often seem to be geared toward women. We will discuss how meaningful engagement can’t just be left to activity/recreational professionals anymore. When all individuals in a community share their passions and interests, relationships flourish and spontaneity happens. As we all rethink what we can make happen for men, they often find new purpose and meaning in their lives, and their once-vibrant spirits will rise again. And although we are focusing well-deserved attention on men’s needs here, the principles discussed apply to everyone.
*The discussion will include the new CMS regulation for Activities which goes into effect November 28, 2016.
