What Can You Expect at the

2014 National Adult Day Services Association Conference?

 

Four optional Pre-Conference Intensives to begin the conference

Thursday October 9, 2014

 

The Community Based Health Home Model: Unifying Services for Better Participant Outcomes The Community Based Health Home (CBHH) Project represents a new model of “hands-on” person-centered care coordination for patients with complex medical, cognitive or behavioral health conditions. By allying adult day services with the primary care physician, a unified “health home” is created to support independence and health, enabling patients with multiple chronic conditions to live in community settings. Discover how the community based home health model relates to key national health home standards. Understand ways to improve the intersection of primary care with the provision of adult day services. Apply learnings from this model to maximize the ability of adult day services to stabilize the health of high-risk patients, thereby reducing emergency department visits within emerging structures for health reform.

The Growing Difference: Planting Seeds for “Culture Change” Through Nature-Based Experiences

In this era of “culture change”, one program that can make a difference for so many individuals is a nature-based program, also known as Horticultural Therapy. During this session, attendees will engage in experiences developed to assist them in more clearly understanding the impact of using plants/nature to bring about improved emotional and physical well-being for those being served. The use of plants as “tools” to assist individuals toward their desired outcomes will be discussed as well as how to develop a basic level nature-based program.

ENSO ARTS ACADEMY: An arts-based teaching and learning model for people living with cognitive impairments

A gap exists in services for individuals living in their homes who still desire to engage and learn, but are not open to or ready for adult day services.  Discover how the Enso Arts Academy was developed at an adult day center to provide one- to two-hour classes that open doors for future clients and provide an additional channel for revenue.  Session attendees will learn about the unique abilities and learning styles of older adults, including those living with dementia.  Receive guidelines for starting a school within an adult day center and a template to write class schedules.  Recognize the marketing and revenue benefits from the current Engagement Institute.
