Mental Wellbeing: Regaining Confidence and Control

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, which is a timely opportunity to think about the trauma of the past year and how it has affected everyone, in ways we may not yet fully realize. This on-demand session on the LeadingAge Learning Hub explores how we all can respond to the sadness, anxiety, fear, and stress that arise when we face short and long-term crises. Free for members to access.

Free Access to Providers! 2021 Collaborative Care & Health IT Innovations Summit

As members of the collaborative care community, we all know how important it is for long-term and acute care providers to stay current with the very latest technology and innovations that can improve care, reduce costs, and lead to better health outcomes for older adults. But, after a year of struggling with COVID, many of you have shared that your budgets just won't allow you to attend this year’s Collaborative Care & Health IT Innovations Summit. That’s why LeadingAge is opening up the June 8-10 event by offering free registration to all care providers across the collaborative care continuum.
