Tuesday, September 1st (Session B3) - Becoming Community Builders

Session B3

The person-directed care movement has made great strides in promoting individual preferences and autonomy. Taking this concept further requires creating environments where Elders not only make decisions about their own lives but have an opportunity for true influence on the culture and operations of the community. The current model of senior living is one of service and hospitality, turning those receiving services into consumers. In this session, we will explore bringing Elders (and those who support them) back to citizenship and creating communities where healthy norms exist and everyone has accountability to the whole.

1. Compare the hospitality model with community building.
2. List the components that must be in place to create a sense of community.
3. Discuss stories and practical application of community building.
