    CW 109: Recruitment, Teams and Mindset with Chris Heinz

    Every senior living organization runs ads on various job boards. The challenge is not that they are running these ads, but WHAT verbiage they use! Chris Heinz shares powerful insight for effective job postings. What you say and what you omit can make a difference in attracting the right talent!

    During our Mindset Moment, BTG Contributor Chris Heinz, Managing Partner of Westport One, discusses the reality of life and time. Focusing on the truly important parts of life rather than busy work will leave you more fulfilled!

    #ActivitiesStrong 18

    Join Robert Espinoza, Executive Vice President of Policy at PHI and Rev. Beth Long-Higgins, VP of Engagement and Director of the Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging at United Church Homes for a discussion aimed to reflect, address, and attract diverse population preferences in senior living communities.

    As many LGBTQ+ older adults have lived a lifetime of challenges and discrimination, which often persist as they enter the long-term care system, there are great opportunities for senior living leaders to consider unmet expectations from these individuals. Providers are increasingly tapping into these unmet demands by addressing barriers to promote equitable, person-centered resident engagement. Learn how your community can create safe and inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ individuals that draw on their wisdom, allow them to participate in the community, and receive the support they need as they age to finally build true person-centered care.

    Raising Tech Ep. 12: Do You Kare?

    Raising Tech Ep. 12: Do You Kare?

    Before COVID, there were 2.9 million front-line post-acute caregivers across the country. In early 2020, 15% of this workforce left the industry, with experts predicting a shortage of 1.8 million caregivers by the year 2023.
    In this episode of Raising Tech, our host Amber Bardon sits down with Charles Turner, Founder and CEO of KARE. Often referred to as the “Uber of staffing”, KARE’s mission is to transform caregivers and nurses into heroes who can easily respond to the call from senior care communities to save the day.
    Learn how KARE is approaching the industry’s staffing crisis, how they differ from traditional staffing agencies, and the impact their service will inevitably have on the future of the senior living industry.
    Raising Tech is powered by Parasol Alliance.
