With COVID-19 no one can eliminate the uncertainty about whether they will get sick, or how sick they will become.  But there is a way to limit the uncertainty, through proactively asking about the type of care they want, should they become severely ill.  Providing this information in advance limits the uncertainty for their loved ones and for the clinical teams who can confidently create a plan that aligns with what matters most to the individual.

Join a panel of experts who will discuss resources available to help facilitate person-centered care conversations with patients and families related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  ​Hear from colleagues on some of the unique challenges faced when having person-centered care conversations and review the legal considerations with the various advance care planning forms and documents.

Join Eric K. Shell, CPA, MBA, Stroudwater Associates Chairman of the Board, for a webinar on Friday, April 24, to learn actionable, practical steps that hospital and health system leaders should take to increase cash flow leveraging the CARES Act of 2020 (Medicare accelerated payments, Small Business Administration Payroll Protection Program, new SHIP dollars, etc.), and some more traditional strategies.

In addition, learn best practice approaches taken by an innovative rural hospital CEO that effectively positioned his organization for the post-pandemic world.

Tips for Providing Dementia Care During COVID-19

Date/Time:  Tuesday, April 28​, 1pm CDT
Register here:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/webinar-tips-for-providing-dementia-care-during-covid-19-registration-102426781260
Presenter:  Kathi Herried, Alzheimer’s Association South Dakota Chapter

Most likely, dementia does not increase risk for COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus, just like dementia does not increase risk for flu. However, dementia-related behaviors, increased age and common health conditions that often accompany dementia may increase risk.  For example, people with Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia may forget to wash their hands or take other recommended precautions to prevent illness. In addition, diseases like COVID-19 and the flu may worsen cognitive impairment due to dementia. This session will share tips on how to care for patients living with Alzheimer’s and other related dementia illnesses within residential communities and home-based settings. Attendees will also learn about available resources provided through the Alzheimer’s Association.

CE’s are offered for LNHA and SW’s
