    Nursing Homes: Quality Care & Quality of Life, Part 2
    Moving to a nursing home is difficult, but sometimes necessary. Our prior session, available on our archive page, looked at how to find the best home possible for short term rehabilitation or long term care. In this follow-up session, Alice Hedt, former Executive Director of the Coalition for Nursing Home Reform, will explore how family members and residents themselves can promote quality of care and quality of life once in a nursing facility. Get resources and ideas so care can be person centered.  Learn who can help you in the facility and outside of it if a resident experiences poor care. There will be opportunities for questions.
