Make Your Staff WANT To Stay!

5/25/2021
Izzy has explored these discoveries with his company GBC Facility Services, which provides full janitorial services for healthcare and other facilities. With mass burnout and not much money, nursing home staff are rapidly leaving their professions for better paying, less stressful opportunities.

Are We Treating Our Seniors Worse Than Horses?

5/11/2021
Nancy’s podcast Glowing Older examines the intersection of wellness and senior care. With 25 years in the hospitality, health, and wellness industries, she has deep knowledge of the mental and physical benefits wellness can provide.

Combating Staff Turnover & Burnout In Nursing Homes

4/22/2021
Before becoming a serial entrepreneur, Pritma served as a registered nurse for 18 years. This first-hand experience allows her to understand what nurses want and need from employers. As a nurse, Pritma would sometimes work double shifts that added up to 20 hours a day because of shortages. In this time of COVID-19, facilities are often understaffed. Nurses are high in-demand and are constantly receiving competing offers of larger salaries and bigger paychecks. As a result, nurses...

Memory: It's All In Your Head

4/15/2021
As a geriatric social worker and memory coach who's been in the field for twenty years, Rena, knows a lot about memory and particularly how it declines. She provides a distinction between normal memory loss and abnormal memory loss which impedes daily functioning and is associated with conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer's. While genetics are often assumed to be the largest predictor of abnormal memory loss, they are in fact, only about one-third of the problem. Lifestyle,...

Should Nursing Homes Be On TikTok?

4/12/2021
Despite starting off as a nurse and clinical liaison, Steve’s side gig of marketing and content creation soon grew into a full-service agency, Craft Media, of which he remains president. Though senior care facilities serve an older clientele, they are really marketing to younger relatives, decision-makers and placement workers in hospitals, and potential employees. Steve explains that all of these groups will likely be present on social media and will be influenced by the quality of a...

Dietitians: More Than Just Food

4/7/2021
As the founder of MNT Associates and an experienced long-term care dietitian, Esther Gutman hires, trains, and provides dietitians to long-term care facilities. Dietary is often disregarded as glorified catering when, in fact, it is one of the most prominent facets of a facility. It is the one area of service that every resident and every family member can understand and look forward to. For this reason, Esther always tries to bring excellent standards to the kitchen. In order to fully...

Can Nursing Homes Be Less Chaotic?

3/22/2021
Tzvi Schwartz, certified EOS Implementer, explains that if a leader must motivate employees it means that they don’t have a clear vision, their employees don’t share their core values, or their employees aren’t in the right seat. The concept of a vision refers to who a company is and where exactly it is going every day. This doesn’t have to be a grand, altruistic plan. In fact, it will be obvious if a company’s vision is contrived or insincere and they will inevitably attract employees who...

We Only Notice When IT Stops Working

3/15/2021
Nathan Berger, Chief Technology Officer of DigaCore, explains that most outsiders to the trade, such as nursing home operators, are often confused about what “IT” actually does and doesn't do. IT covers the internet and computer infrastructures. Without the help of an IT company, nursing home technology systems will likely be designed poorly and operators will lose lots of valuable time supervising repairs. Unlike many other IT companies, DigaCore offers its services at a flat-rate model...

Content Marketing In Senior Care

3/3/2021
Yitz Rubin, Director of Business Development at Renewal Rehab, is relatively new to the healthcare industry. Having been in sales for ten years he has done his fair share of outbound marketing. These traditional sales techniques such as cold calling and mail and email blasts work by the principal that if something is done persistently enough you will begin to see results. This method differs wildly from content marketing which involves creating valuable content that will establish a...

Wasn't the Covid Vaccine Developed Too Quickly? Is it Really Safe?

2/22/2021
Shmuel: What about the fact that this vaccine was developed so quickly? Shouldn't we be concerned that it was developed too quickly? Katherine: No. This is a different type of vaccine. It's an mRNA vaccine which can be developed efficiently in a much shorter time frame. Shmuel: When they started working on a vaccine, did they know it would take this quickly? Katherine: It's not earth shattering news. In the research community at least this was already known. Shmuel: Should we be...

Sponsor the Show- The Growth of The Nursing Home Podcast - Solo Episode

2/7/2021
Why did I start this podcast? It's actually pretty simple. I started the podcast to find the answers to basic questions that weren't showing up in the Google results. I was only finding flowery and jargon-filled content but nothing that spoke to me in a practical way telling me what to do. The Nursing Home Podcast was created to fill this void. I've received so many beautiful messages from owners, administrators, and those working in nursing homes telling me how they listen to the show...

Caleb York is the Channel Development Manager for VirtueSense and joined the company as a result of witnessing the ineffectiveness of other fall-prevention technologies during his time working at the University of Michigan Health System. While other industries have successfully become more automated and as technologically advanced, healthcare continues to lag behind. Most senior care facilities find it extremely difficult to purchase vital technologies with the potential to save lives...

Alok Mahadevia, who goes by Loki, discovered laughter yoga in 2012 after feeling extremely lonely upon moving to the United States from India.

Susan Ryan, senior director of the Green House project, delves into the negative stigma that faces seniors. With 40+ years of experience in the senior care field, Ryan has witnessed first hand the problems of both nursing homes and home care. With decreased independence, institutional living environments, coupled with a culture of ageist beliefs, elderly residents often feel disempowered and diminished.
