B. Helping Residents Manage Mental Health Challenges

Providers of aging services across the continuum strive to address the needs of residents who live with untreated mental health and substance use conditions. This session will highlight how Westminster Communities of Florida is helping residents manage these conditions. Representatives of that organization will be on hand to review statistics showing the enormous challenges facing older adults in need of mental health support. They will demonstrate how strong metrics, data sharing, and collaboration can strengthen resident health and well-being outcomes in nursing and assisted living settings and how housing professionals with limited resources can support residents experiencing ongoing or acute mental health crises. Learn how these interventions can improve team member and resident satisfaction—and the bottom line.
