D. A SystemsLevel Initiative to Support Employee WellBeing

The well-being of individuals working at every level of senior living organizations has been seriously challenged over the past few years. Presbyterian Homes in Skokie, IL, established a systems-level intervention to help employees address those challenges. This session will describe the processes and strategies the organization used to implement a well-being initiative with help from leadership, staff, and resident champions. Presbyterian Homes’ director of therapeutic services will review the latest research about workplace well-being and explore the connection between staff well-being, quality of care, clinical outcomes, and operations. Let yourself be inspired to establish similar interventions to foster emotional well-being among staff while stabilizing and empowering the aging services workforce.
