The official call for proposals is open at National Association for Home Care & Hospice website for the Private Duty Homecare Association’s annual leadership conference to be held in las Vegas at the Bellagio, Jan 22-25, 2012.
Proposals are accepted until July 15th . The theme for this year’s conference is “Activity Enhanced Home Care,” and how to provide best in class products, services and training to direct care staff to help engage those who are receiving in-home care. The theme would also work for management and operational ideas to make activities and engagement a goal for working with in-home care, coordinating with NAHC’s five equities: intellectual equity, financial equity, physical equity, psychological equity and spiritual equity.
As the in-home care industry matures, and more players enter the market, what services are offered, how they are offered, and how processes are put in place to monitor and add value are all changing and evolving. PDHCA as an association is ahead of the curve in assisting membership to grow businesses, and understand the nuances of long term in-home care.
Think about either how you can fit into this leadership conference as a presenter, or send me some ideas about ways that home care is working to engage clients and patient’s so their aging in place experience is not a lonely, isolated one with no activity.
