Learn how to make ‘a meaningful nursing home visit’
By University of Illinois Extension
BELVIDERE, Ill. — Visiting a loved one in a nursing home can be very difficult, despite the fact that the nursing home industry is trying to make facilities more home-like and less institutional.
There are many reasons for the reluctance to visit someone in a nursing facility, and many emotions involved, yet it is important to make their stay easier and more pleasurable.
“Making a Meaningful Nursing Home Visit” is a program designed to help participants identify with nursing home residents, and to identify the emotions that may be preventing quality visits. Practical ideas for making visits more valuable and enjoyable will also be shared.
Molly Hofer, U of I Extension Family Life educator, will conduct the webinar at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Boone County Extension Meeting Room, 205 Cadillac Court, Unit 5, in Belvidere, Ill. The fee for this program is $5.
Advance registration is needed by Jan. 27, 2014. To register, call U of I Extension Boone County at (815) 544-3710, or e-mail email@example.com.
