Conversations with Carmen
November 9, 2018: Know Better, Do Better – Part 4
Guest: Sarah Brown, Executive Director, Empira
Empira has been working to better understand the wants and needs of older adults, given the following truths:
- The primary reason for many behavioral expressions centers around the lack of support for “work of aging.”
- The ultimate success of inevitable aging is the ability to maintain integrity with a sense of closure and completeness and accept death without fear.
Based on these understandings, an approach called ResoLute (Resident Empowered Solutions on Living until the End) is currently in development to support conversations about life and mortality – to identify and uphold what matters most.
