If you work in Assisted Living (or you're considering assisted living as a career choice) you need to watch this video.
We've been fans of Dick Weinman for some time now. We posted a piece back in September of 2014 titled “The Thin Edge of Dignity by Dick Weinman”. This piece discussed the importance of transparency when it comes to aging, and aging conversations.
If You Work in Assisted Living…
We think Dick's words are incredibly profound. EVERYONE who works in long-term-care should be required to view this video as part of the facility's on-boarding process.
I thought I knew what to expect. But I wasn't prepared to learn that most people residing in here – Stay in here. – Dick Weinman, The Thin Edge of Dignity
