Conversations with Carmen

October 1, 2015:  Creating Rampant Normalcy
Guest Speaker:  Glenn, Blacklick, NHA, Action Pact Consultant

The September webinar received such positive reviews that Action Pact is going to offer it again on Thursday, October 1.  If you missed it the first time, here is your 2nd chance.  This is a hot topic!

Nationally known for successfully bringing normal life pursuits to nursing home residents, Glenn will share how to accomplish this, from his dual perspective as a recreation therapist and innovative administrator.  Hear how residents have ventured out of the community to climb trees, navigate rivers, go boating, fishing, motorcycling; and also ventured inside the community, engaging their talents and pursuing wellness.  Glenn encourages others to look at their home and community through residents’ eyes – where a good life every day is within their reach.
