August 30, 2023: For the Love of Quality Care: Implementing Innovative Education
Advocates for quality care, caregivers, family and friends, and aging care professionals; this webinar is truly for everyone! Training and education on dementia, meaningful activities, and person-centered care should be practice-focused and brief. Join VOYCE to learn about the practice videos and modules available and how to disseminate them, and you’ll be one step closer to ensuring quality care for all! Saint Louis University’s Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program, along with Memory Care Home Solutions, has developed brief practice videos and modules on topics important for professionals in long-term care and other care settings. They include topics like loneliness and isolation, polypharmacy, infection, meaningful activities, geriatric assessment, dementia, and more. This presentation will provide insight into the use of these resources and the positive impact they have on training and outcomes for consumers. This event is free and open to all who are interested.
October 10, 2023: Summit to Protect Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities
VOYCE will host a series of four stakeholder summits to hear from the community and professional stakeholders about their experiences with Missouri’s abuse response system. October’s summit is the second in the series. The summits are open to everyone, as we are all stakeholders in responding to abuse, neglect, and exploitation. We hope to use this time to gather pain points from the community and learn how the system can be improved. The input received from the Stakeholders Summit will be used to create our final project- a strategic plan for restructuring and improving the system. Please register in advance to join.
