COVID-19 Workshop on August 13: Family Perspectives: Nursing Home Visitation Restrictions & Communication

Thursday, August 13, 10:30-11AM EDT

Our COVID-19 Workshop Series continues on Thursdays, 10:30–11AM.

COVID-19 has changed how we interact within nursing homes and how we visit loved ones.

Join us as we share strategies for facilities, families, and residents including:

  • Communication strategies used between residents, families, and facilities during the pandemic
  • How communication or lack of communication impacts family perceptions about a facility
  • Understanding concerns families have about the lack of visitation
  • How survey results can guide development of timely and targeted facility communications strategy
