  1. Play with a Purpose: building a therapeutic routine
    Skyview Rehabilitation Rehabilitation & Health Care, 5:30pm - 8:30am
    Join us for a Complimentary Continuing Education, Paint and Sip and Hors d'oeuvres! Professionals working with individuals living with dementia likely recognize the therapeutic potential of recreation, but creating effective, recreation-based therapeutic routines can be a challenge. Doing so requires creativity, flexibility, and an understanding of how play impacts quality of life. Too often, the care and therapy process become rigid and unengaging, leading to resistance. “Playing with purpose,” or creatively embedding strategies into naturally occurring experiences in order to maximize outcomes, can create meaning and develop skill - minimizing challenges and conflicts. In this session, learn to apply a fresh approach to working with individuals living with dementia and their carers, by incorporating play-based strategies for building a client-directed therapeutic routine. 1.0 Contact Hour for Social Workers and Certified Case Managers

  3. CE Workshop: Meals Matter: The Social Aspects of Food and Nutrition in Eldercare
    The 80th Street Residence 5:30pm-6:30pm Networking & Refreshments 6:30pm-8:00pm CE Workshop
    Nutrition is about much more than food, and that importance increases as we age. Food is almost always shared, and eating meals together with loved ones or friends at home or in eldercare settings can remain a deeply meaningful part of life. This presentation will discuss how a person’s experience with food over their lifetime can be symbolic and will also include other factors that may influence eating behaviors in the senior population. We will examine the nutritional and social aspects of dining and discuss specific ideas for creating inviting dining experiences based on CompassCare’s unique service excellence philosophy. Best practices will be shared from geriatric and hospitality research at Cornell University. Presentation Generously Hosted by The 80th Street Residence and Sponsored by CompassCare 1.5 Contact Hours CEU Event
