Stop the stigma with mental health

Person-centered care is holistic health care - focusing on mind and body.

With mental and behavioral health diagnoses increasing in assisted living, it is imperative that providers understand these diagnoses, how to screen for them, and how to best support residents with these diagnoses.

NCAL Day at the AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo offers an important education session for any assisted living provider, “Providing Mental Health Care in Assisted Living.” Join us Sunday, October 7 at the San Diego Convention Center for this critical discussion.

The recent, tragic passings of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain remind us that no one is immune from mental health issues. And studies show that depression in older adults tends to be more severe than in other age groups.

Join mental health and quality of life expert, Barbara Speedling to better understand how mental health impacts assisted living residents' physical health and overall well-being.
