Green House webinars seek to break the boundaries of traditional senior living models to create truly person-centered environments with expertise and thought leadership that is both provocative and grounded in reality.

A Person-Centered Approach to Urinary Incontinence

Join Dr. Rosemary Laird of Florida State University on August 31 at 3 p.m. ET for an enlightening webinar on the connections between urinary incontinence and elder wellbeing.

In this 45-minute webinar for nurses, shahbazim, and other caregivers, you'll learn how aging and other factors affect urinary health, all with the goal of developing and implementing a truly person-centered care plan that honors elders' dignity and prevents adverse health events.

The Green House Project will offer .75 nurse contact hours for completion of the webinar. The Green House Project is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by Maryland Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

In addition to serving as a clinical associate professor in the Department of Geriatrics at the Florida State University School of Medicine, Dr. Laird is a principal investigator for ClinCloudResearch in Viera, Fla. She received her medical degree with honors from the Georgetown University School of Medicine, and she was named Geriatrician of the Year by the American Geriatrics Society in 2013.

Empowering Elder Wellbeing with Supportive Technology

Today’s elders have more ways than ever to stay connected with their loved ones, but tech support at Life Plan Communities and other senior living campuses isn’t always geared toward them – and common resources online may not include solutions unique to their needs.

Even though the strict lockdowns at nursing homes and other communal settings have eased considerably, the pandemic revealed the very real need for elders to master technology in order to combat loneliness, provide entertainment, and even stay on top of their health through apps and wearables.

On August 26 at 3 p.m. ET, Join GroovyTek, The Green House Project, and the Pioneer Network for a can’t-miss discussion on empowering elders with technology.

Using the International Council on Active Aging’s Seven Dimensions of Wellness as a guide, we’ll:

  • Explore the current state of older adults’ relationship with technology
  • Discuss strategies to overcome barriers to adopting common tech tools
  • Discover how tech can promote elders’ independence, wellbeing, and health
  • Hear directly from an elder about her personal experience with tech
  • And much more

GroovyTek, The Green House Project, and the Pioneer Network hope to see you there!
