At The Village at Rockville—A National Lutheran Community, we provide our continuing education programs each year because we value education – education that provides opportunity to improve communications and the delivery of care in the health care setting, specifically those settings relating to the older adults that we serve in our community. We value the partnership that we have developed both with Jenerations Health Education and with the number of professionals who attend our programs. We encourage you to share us with a friend, and we certainly encourage you to share the services available at The Village at Rockville with your clients.
Our continuing education programs offer a variety of CEUs for social workers, assisted living managers, case managers and nursing home administrators. Please check the specific session for the hours available. A continental breakfast will be provided.
Mark your calendars now to attend our 2020 programs. Please note – all events are virtual through the end of 2020.

As Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress, our ability to understand the patient constantly becomes more challenging. The patient’s declining ability to understand us can also become a major source of frustration and “behaviors.” Join us for this interactive program where we will discuss strategies for better understanding—and being understood by—someone who has dementia.

Navigating the 3 D’s: Dementia, Delirium, Depression
Dementia, delirium and depression often coexist in older adult clients. Failure to properly cognitively assess and recognize the differences and similarities between these issues can result in serious harm to clients. Delirium, often a medical emergency, needs to be recognized and treated immediately. Medical professionals may attribute acute cognitive changes to chronic cognitive disorders. This lecture provides a clear and simple approach to understanding the etiology, presentation and corrective actions necessary for managing this common co-morbidity.

Ethical Boundaries: The Zone Of Helpfulness In The Professional Caregiver & Patient Relationship
Boundaries are the invisible line between the patient/ family and the healthcare provider. Professional boundaries may vary depending on the practice setting and license the professional holds. Maintaining boundaries involves understanding the importance of staying in the zone of helpfulness and the consequences of overstepping. This interactive program examines the ethical dilemmas that arise regarding boundaries and how our professional codes of ethics guide us in maintaining professionalism with empathy. Join us for a lively discussion on creating and maintaining the appropriate “zone” for your practice.
