Best Practices for Long Term Care Student Internships
Learn more about internships, workforce knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA), student competency, recruitment and best practices for internships.

Respecting Differences
Respecting differences is essential to staff working well together, building teams, and having the highest customer service possible. There is more polarization and more fear of differences than ever today. We know it is essential and the right thing to do to identify differences, learn respect, and develop tools that staff and residents can use to embrace differences in respectful ways that will enhance everyone’s quality of life.

When a Threat Happens
Learn from a first-hand account of steps taken when a community faced an active threat.

Crisis Management
Workplace Violence, Resident Abuse, Breakdown in the Provision of Care, Privacy Breaches, Natural Disasters… these events have a few elements in common. Our brand is at stake. We have made sincere commitments to our residents and their families - commitments that we intend to keep, commitments that are in keeping with our mission, commitments that we planned and trained for… and then protocol is not followed, security is breached, response systems are overwhelmed. Whatever the scenario, we find ourselves working in “Reaction Mode.” When these events occur, care can be compromised; and then the media walks in. How we respond can impact resident outcomes, regulatory outcomes, and civil and criminal exposure. Hear about how to manage elements of a crisis including media response. Emphasis will be placed on workplace violence examples, but content will be applicable to many different scenarios.

Mid-Atlantic CCRC/Life Plan Marketing and Communications Symposium

with LeadingAge Virginia and LeadingAge Maryland
September 19, 2018
Covenant Woods Retirement Community
Mechanicsville, VA

Three states - one place! Come network and learn with members from LeadingAge NC, VA, and MD! We have a great day planned with plenty of time to connect and share with peers, including a networking dinner the evening before the symposium.


  • The Digital Tools and Techniques Essential for Senior Living Marketing
    As digital marketing grows in importance for senior living communities, marketers are discovering that one approach does not fit all types of services at a CCRC/LPC.
  • Marketing Your Message with Public Relations
    Learn to use Facebook and engage key audiences by telling your community's most interesting stories. When done strategically, Facebook is a cost effective way to market your CCRC/LPC and to shape your community's public image.
  • Preparing for the Next Generation of Senior Living Consumers
    It’s very clear that senior living is experiencing a shift in consumer preferences, and research shows that Baby Boomers present very different characteristics from previous older adult generations.
  • Creative and Unique Marketing Applications
    A panel comprised of three member communities will discuss their education/community involvement and share best practices.
