    ZIBRIO: Six Pillars of Balance and a Strong Partnership

    ZIBRIO: Six Pillars of Balance and a Strong Partnership

    Join us in the Lounge as host Katie Holterman, M.S. CCC-SLP, BCS-S, Senior Director of Clinical Programming & Development, and cohost Meredith Brunk, Director of Occupational Therapy Clinical Services, dive into the world of balance. The team met with our partner, Andrea Case-Rogers, Chief Experience Officer of ZIBRIO the balance company.  ZIBRIO Stability Scale (ZIBRIO) technology was introduced into Legacy communities to determine specific fall risks in residents versus reacting once a fall happens. The purpose of the Stability Scale is to first increase the accuracy of fall risk assessment (it identifies up to four times more high-risk patients than current clinical methods), while the partnering application identifies the “why” behind an individual’s physical balance score by evaluating the “six pillars of balance.” 
     "We find it to be beneficial for the residents we serve to be able to provide the balance score for them and our staff members to utilize this piece of technology."

    Your Voice Matters: Virtual Advocacy on the Hill

    Your Voice Matters: Virtual Advocacy on the Hill

    The National Association of Rehab Providers and Agencies hosted 93 meetings on April 28, 2022, for 53 participants across the US to discuss legislation and therapy providers such as Legacy Healthcare Services. 6 of the 53 participants were our Legacy leaders!

    Join us in the Lounge today as host Katie Holterman, M.S. CCC-SLP, BCS-S, Senior Director of Clinical Programming & Development sits with Lynette Kentgen, M.S. CCC-SLP, Vice President of Operations, and Bethany Pritchett, OTR/L, Regional Director of Operations to discuss our Legacy leader's participation in the virtual advocacy on the Hill meetings.

    Attending these meetings was another step for Legacy Healthcare Services to fight for the rights and wages of our therapy assistants that continue to care for and empower our senior residents to live a life full of purpose, safety, and dignity.

    As an organization, we cannot continue our “WHY” without supporting those who carry out our company mission and Legacy each and every day.  Special thank you to team members Lynette Kentgen, Katie Holterman, Bethany Pritchett, Josh Harp, Wendy Rousse, and Angela Bell for joining our Legacy leadership team in advocating for our therapy assistants, and the care of the residents we happily serve!
