This week I have curated another set of vibrant online discussions in the home care field. This comes as no surprise as we all know that we are in a thriving industry made up of smart, dedicated, and passionate individuals eager to share their ideas and to grow their business.
The challenge is that it sometimes can be difficult to find time to sift through and digest all the information available. As a way to distill some of the content for you, here are a few conversations happening online that you may want to join or to learn more about:
The 9 Essential Elements of Quality Care
The concise and thoughtful piece outlines: "...essential elements of high-quality care, services, and support for people who receive long-term care–whether in their own homes or in a nursing home, assisted living community, or other long-term care settings."
It is also yet another reminder that we are in the People Business. What do you think of the list? Is there anything you add or subtract? Do you have any examples that you'd like to share that illustrates one of the nine Elements listed?
Home Care Executives: Are you going to the What's Next Boomer Business Summit?
Here's another useful resource brought to my attention by the prolific Laurie Orlov (Twitter Handle: @Aging Tech), an industry analyst and tech for aging in place:
"What's Next Boomer Business Summit is an annual event that brings together the country's top businesses and organizations that are focused on the baby boomer and beyond marketplace. It is where deals get done."
One of the key topics will be: "New Service Economy: Housing, Caregiving, Mobility and Healthcare."
Will you be attending this year? Those of you who attended last year, did you have an exciting take-aways or eurakas?
