Make Your Staff WANT To Stay!
One of the biggest pain points in the senior care industry is finding and holding onto staff.
Izzy Waknin explains that facilities must create a culture in which the staff feels heard and supported. That will make them want to stay.
Are We Treating Our Seniors Worse Than Horses?
Even the most luxurious of senior care facilities are still institutions designed for clinical, standardized care that often has a degrading effect on patients.
Nancy Griffin founder of the Glowing Older podcast explains how emphasizing wellness in senior care can help seniors retain their individuality and find a purpose.
Combating Staff Turnover & Burnout In Nursing Homes
While nurses are working constantly and under extreme pressure to help people, they don’t often receive a lot of help themselves.
By giving nurses the care they deserve, administrators, operators, and facilities, can hold onto these important employees and nurture their resiliency.
Pritma Chattha, Leader of Healthcare Innovation at Apploi, provides insight on how employers can help nursing staff and how her company assists healthcare providers in hiring and retaining more qualified staff.
Memory: It's All In Your Head
The prospect of developing dementia, Alzheimer's disease, or memory loss, is one of the largest worries as people grow older.
However, this seeming inevitability may not actually be so inevitable. It can be addressed and possibly avoided by altering our lifestyle and the ways we use mind and memory.
In this episode we meet, Rena Yudkowsky, a geriatric social worker and memory coach, as she details the various cognitive practices and lifestyle changes that people can engage in to curb memory loss.
Should Nursing Homes Be On TikTok?
The idea of nursing homes on TikTok seems laughable! How could a platform populated by youngsters benefit an industry whose literal purpose is catering to older people?
This tendency to think senior care facilities shouldn’t bother with social media is wrong and will lose operators and administrators the opportunity to reach multiple important target markets.
Steve Hall, the president of Craft Media, explains the numerous advantages that TikTok present for nursing homes.
Dietitians: More Than Just Food
Every senior care facility needs a dietitian, but many do not fully comprehend the integral role they play in the function of a facility.
Likewise, many dietitians give complex orders that are difficult to follow because they don't understand the inevitable chaos that staff face every day.
Medical Nutrition Therapy Associates addresses this disconnect by training dietitians to be team players and enter every situation ready to help out in any way needed.
Applicable to different segments of healthcare!
I have gained a lot of knowledge just by listening. Try it for yourself to learn something as well
Education and appreciation
This podcast educates me on the intricacies of all the components that go into running SNFs. Also hearing from leaders in every department of the nursing home makes me really appreciate what each employee does. The host does a great job in asking questions and getting the core messages from the guests. He also brings more perspective from the experience he had working in nursing homes. Great podcast.
