LeadingAge Ohio Fall Education Fest

Thank you

Thank you for making our Fall Education Fest a HUGE success!  

Our members have come together this year in ways none of us could have imagined. Administrators and directors are now delivering meals with dining teams. Life enrichment teams are spending entire days facilitating Zoom meetings or outdoor visits between residents and loved ones. Transportation teams are now delivering needed groceries to older adults. Service coordinators and property managers are finding creative ways to keep residents connected and engaged. Hospice teams are overcoming visitation obstacles to continue to deliver compassionate care. All of us are learning to work in a world where PPE and testing are our normal. The jobs we do each day might look different, but our missions have never been clearer.
