Your Attention Is Needed – All Types Of Care Homes Are Struggling

KSTP -Kirsten Swanson

The Public Isn’t Hearing About The Shortages To The Level Needed To In Order To Prioritize Staff Shortages Being Addressed!

The above video highlights what is happening in the group home industry, but don’t think for one minute it stops there! Most communities from independent living, assisted living, memory care, transitional care and even our hospitals; if honest will state they are struggling to provide quality care due to lack of people being willing to work in the industry. Many communities say they are filled to capacity, but if you push you will find that capacity is actually based on the number of staff available to cover shifts, not the number of beds or rooms they have to fill. This is a HUGE change in how occupancy is viewed and communicated to the public.

I my personal opinion, it is a mistake to set this false perception up as we can’t get support to fix this huge problem that isn’t going away on it’s own without honest information. I understand companies don’t want to look like they are struggling to the public, but the public can be their biggest advocate if they are told what the true needs are. Families will rally if guided as to how they can help.

As a family member, who had a loved one in a community I would have wanted to know. I would also have extreme respect for a company who is openly saying they are protecting my loved one by making sure they are staffed; even if that means they are not able to fill all their beds.

Private, nonprofit, government, staff, families, and the general public need to discuss this situation openly and honestly; if the problem is going to be resolved. Collaborations at deeper levels need to happen. No longer can we fix this in our separate silos. I urge everyone at every level to talk openly about the issues at hand and work together in the light vs hide in the darkness.

Ms. Veronika Zyss began writing after her husband’s death. At first, it was to make sense of her feelings. The book turned out to be very cathartic for her. Expressing her feelings made it easier to come to terms with them. During the process Veronika thought her sharing her story might help others. Since then, her book has been endorsed, published globally, and she has appeared on Alzheimer’s podcast and as a guest author. Listen in to this amazing story!

Dementia Map Global Resource Directory – Connecting Families & Professionals to Services, Products, Tools, & Events

Monday April 25th – 2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London GMT, 9pm South Africa SAST, and on the April 26th at 6am in Australia AEDT

Watch the Video Interview Below

Today’s show is going to be a bit different. After Lori La Bey introduces her guests, she will be passing her role as interviewer over to Eilon Caspi, as we dive into Dementia Map Global Resource Directory.

Eilon Caspi is a colleague and friend whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years. Eilon is a Gerontologist & an Assistant Research Professor at the University of Connecticut.  He also has cofacilitated Dementia chats with me for years.  Eilon recently published a wonderful book called the Understanding and Preventing Harmful Interactions Between Residents with Dementia. 

Dave Wiederrich and I, our cofounders of Dementia Map.  In addition, he is also the founder and operator of Memory Cafe Directory, which he started in 2016 when he realized how difficult it was to locate on. Memory Cafe Directory now has over 1,000 listings in five countries.

For anyone who is new to Alzheimer’s Speaks here is a brief background on Loir La Bey.  Her Mother lived with dementia for 30 years and this journey changed both their lives. Like many Lori was a frustrated daughter looking for services, products, tools and support and she found very little. So, Lori decided to do something about it and in 2009, started Alzheimer’s Speaks an advocacy group and media outlet making an international impact providing education and support for those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Dementia and the Arts is an Educational Panel where all levels of artists and all types are welcome. Our goal is to elevate panelists work and ability to create beauty in many forms. They will share examples of various types of art they participate in, how, and why they started, what they have learned, and what they personally get out of making art. Panelists, do not have to attend all sessions.

As you will see from the sample video above, conversations are comfortable, casual, and fascinating. We have so much to learn from one another. All recordings will be prerecorded and published to Alzheimer’s Speaks YouTube channel with a specific playlist channel for easy access. Each episode will be pushed out on Alzheimer’s Speaks social media channels as well.

Anyone living with dementia interested in participating, please reach out to Lori La Bey via email, or Private message her on FaceBook
