Temperature taking has been an important strategy during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s also important to check in and “take the temperature” of eldercare service providers within Connecticut. We know providers are struggling to safely and creatively deliver services as the pandemic evolves. This two-part program is intended to create a space of learning and for community of providers to share thoughts, concerns, and ideas. Both sessions will be done via Zoom.
Part #1: Tuesday, July 21, 9:00 -10:30 am.
This session will focus on how the pandemic has isolated us from each other and from the older adults who attend our centers and programs. Breakout rooms will be assigned based on organization type to give colleagues an opportunity to speak to specific problems they face. Note takers will be assigned to each breakout room to document the topics covered and to help prepare for part 2.
Part #2: Tuesday, August 11, 9:00-10:30 am.
By examining the notes and talking points from the July session, this webinar will help provide tips, methods, and strategies for overcoming the challenges faced by providing services during a pandemic. Notable professionals in eldercare will be invited to share some of their personal learnings and creative solutions.
Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions!
