The first hour-long webinar will begin at 11 a.m. EDT, with Stan Szpytek, president of Fire and Life Safety Inc., providing an update on what senior living communities should and must be doing to prepare for emergencies and disasters in a presentation titled “Disaster Preparedness 101: Is Your Community Ready?”

The second educational session of the day will begin at 1 p.m. EDT, when Sue Kruse, RN, director of clinical education at Silverado, will offer advice on how to use exercise, brain- stimulating activities, meditation and other strategies to improve the quality of life for residents living with dementia. Her presentation is titled “Ways to Attack — and Possibly Prevent — the Progression of Dementia.”

The last webinar of the day, at 2:30 p.m. EDT, will feature Lynne Katzmann, Ph.D., founder and president of Juniper Communities. In a presentation titled “The Value of Culture and Communication in Senior Living,” she will discuss why a company’s culture is the foundation for attracting and keeping high-quality leaders and other employees who drive success in signature programs. Speaking of signature programs, Katzmann also will discuss some of Juniper’s signature programs, including Connect4Life, an integrated approach to clinical care and services in assisted living.

Between each educational session, registrants will be able to visit a virtual exhibit hall to interact with company representatives, download literature and watch videos at their booths.
