Long-term, congregate care facilities — especially nursing homes — are often considered the bottom of the social and healthcare food chain. In this webinar, presenters discuss how to battle these social stigmas and redesign facilities and programs for a better long-term future.

One constant for the past 60 years has been the cultural guilt associated with “putting” Granny in a “home” (as though she were a potted plant). The family dynamics and emotional trials of recognizing the need for and selecting a long-term care facility are so bad there have been television satires and movies about it. Yet nursing homes, care homes, board and care homes, and other senior living communities are often the best available solutions for “sandwich generation” families. This guilt has been underscored in recent news highlighting the effect of COVID-19 on congregate care.

Does it have to be that way? Long-term care facilities should be considered much more important than just a place to put Granny or a last resort, but to reach that point, we need to redesign the future of long-term care. In a webinar hosted by Stackpole & Associates, Inc., we discuss how. Watch on-demand.
