At a 1 p.m. ET webinar titled “The route to reduced falls, pain and polypharmacy in senior living,” Linda Shell, DNP, MA, RN, will discuss why sleep is the “fifth vital sign” for older adults and what caregivers can do to improve sleep among residents.

At a 2:30 p.m. ET session titled “Hiring for keeps,” Tommy Corner, Ed.D., and Mark Woodka will discuss how senior living operators can find the best candidates for their open positions and then engage and retain them.
