It's nice to say goodbye to winter and start a fresh new season. Did you all suffer the Norovirus and Influenza bugs at your facilities? I think the hand washing protocol has been burned into my grey matter.
Look forward to our 2017 MAPA education sessions. Our first "Lunch & Learn" with our friends at Meadowood Shores in New Brighton is on April 5. Nicole Rennie is our speaker for the morning and will share some wonderful techniques on how to get our residents up safely while saving our backs in the process. The second half of the day is sharing favorite activities, entertainers, artists, therapies and more. Don't be shy, we can all learn from each other! So bring your materials, your energy and enthusiasm. See you all soon!
If you haven't already signed yourself or your facility up to become a MAPA member, you may do so at our meeting on April 5.
