Helping Professionals on Your Journey Working with Older Adults

 

Are you a professional or paraprofessional who is now responsible for the care of older adults, ready to re-think stereotyped views about getting older, and want insights on tapping the motivation and spirit of your clients and patients?

We all have a vast reservoir of energy and creative spirit inside, sometimes untapped. When we can tap this internal energy and dig deep, we can take on new challenges with a drive and determination that we didn’t know we had. This is a very powerful motivator when helping older adults become more engaged in their treatment. If you are a provider who is responsible for the care of older patients or clients, one important role you have is to help these individuals reconsider their self-limiting, negative thinking style and instead help them see that their fire, drive, and internal spirit never goes away. The spark never goes out.

The Living to 100 Club offers a pathway for professional caregivers, with guidance, insights, and resources to impact how you will keep your clients motivated and connected to their care. With a 30-year career in long-term care settings and providing psychological support to their residents, Dr. Joe Casciani now leads the Living to 100 Club, and is assisting professional caregivers in your rewarding but often challenging work with seniors.
