Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 12, 2006
Workplace Options has added a bonus presentation this month to their popular webinar series. The webinar, called “Talking with John George,” will be presented on October 26th from 2-3pm EST.
John George was featured in the PBS documentary “Almost Home,” which chronicled a year in the life of Saint John’s On-The-Lake, a retirement community located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. John George is the visionary nursing home director of Saint John’s, a facility celebrating over 135 years of service to the community.
Saint John’s has broken away from the traditional medical model of institutional living and has instead focused on building a true community for older adults. Residents are given much greater autonomy and are encouraged to participate in their own care planning. Employees are considered part of this community where Individualized care is the norm. This has resulted in a higher standard of care and a much more positive experience for residents and staff alike.
Webinar participants will learn how Mr. George’s experience of visiting the nursing home where his mother worked led to his championship of a better way of life for older adults. He will explain how small changes such as allowing residents to choose their own meal and sleep times helps them to embrace Saint John’s as their new home. He will also discuss the philosophy of “person-first” and how it has transformed Saint John’s into a leading retirement facility.
The successful WPO webinar series was originally developed to help human resource (HR) departments with employee training and development of work/life benefits. They are presented live by work-life experts, and their topics tie into a monthly theme on the WPO website. Topics focus on work-life issues, family matters and personal development.
WPO’s EAP and work/life clients can access all live webinars via WPO’s award winning, comprehensive user web site. For users who can’t make the live webinars, they can access archives of all the webinars and download the recorded webcast.
