Skokie, IL (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
Upstairs Solutions, the industry leading provider of on-line health care training, announced today an important enhancement to its popular web-based family education series. The Family Series by Upstairs, available free of charge for more than five years to its clients, now features a new dedicated website for families of senior care residents and supporting marketing materials.
The Family Series by Upstairs includes a robust selection of training modules to provide guidance to families with relatives in nursing homes and assisted living facilities . "Family education is an extension of the cutting edge training we provide to long-term care facility staff," said Tamar Abell, Principal of Upstairs Solutions. "The better educated the resident's family is, the better the facility can build expectations, knowledge and understanding. Families want to be involved. This gives our clients a framework to assist their efforts in fostering these key relationships."
The website and the entire series of family education modules will continue to be offered free of charge to Upstairs Solutions clients. The new site can be accessed either through the facility's own website or through a new dedicated Upstairs Solutions page. Customized sites are also available. Brochures, sample press releases and other materials are included to complement facility marketing efforts.
Modules available through Family Series cover a range of topics including: What Families Should Expect from Long-Term Care, Communicating with Older Adults with Dementia, and Siderails -- a Hidden Danger. "Our most successful clients provide their families with information in a range of subjects as an extension of their services," continued Abell. "We are proud to have introduced this to the market and pleased to enhance our support of their efforts with our Family Series by Upstairs."
