The word “bully” typically evokes memories of childhood, when older, bigger kids preyed upon younger, weaker kids, simply because they could.

It’s hard to fathom that bullying resurfaces, or takes a new form, when we find ourselves in communal living environments as seniors.

A recent Cornell University study showed that one in five senior-living respondents indicated they had been bullied at least once in a four-week period.

New Presentation Topics for 2016!

 

Lifecare Innovations continues to develop new presentation topics to reflect our changing healthcare environment and the educational interests of clinical and non-clinical audiences. While all of our topics are offered as CEU presentations for nurses, social workers and nursing home administrators, they can be modified in many cases for lay audiences. Each presentation features an hour of content and one CEU credit for each of the license categories listed above.

Call 630-953-2154 or email contactus@lcius.com to schedule a presentation today.

Snakes on a Rug

Barbara’s world was an interesting and often frightening place.

Snakes nipped at her ankles as she moved around her apartment.

Urine ran freely from the showerhead.

The neighbors held raucous parties and smoked pot.

A skunk in the hallway routinely “gassed” her.

This was no place for an 82-year-old woman to live.
