You may have noticed over the past month a few new contributors to the Long-Term Living blog. Hopefully, you have already checked out their expert voices. But if you missed them the first time around, here’s an introduction with links to each new post.
Mitchell S. Elliott, AIA
Mitch is a great friend of Long-Term Living and served on this year’s DESIGN jury. You may have seen his byline appear on this very blog during March’s Environments for Aging.11 conference as he provided live insights straight from the show floor. Mitch is a design veteran and 28-year member of the American Institute of Architects, is chief development officer at Vetter Health Services and serves as vice-president of the Society for the Advancement of Gerontological Environments (SAGE). He also recently participated in the July issue’s designer roundtable. Read his blog on the importance of life safety here.
It seems providers can never get enough solid advice on marketing. Enter Luke Fannon, founder and principal at Premier Coaching and Training in Unionville, Pennsylvania, who specializes in delivering sales and marketing training to healthcare professionals. Luke’s first post on creative methods of gaining access to referral sources can be found here.
The work of PHI and its dedication to culture change principles is widely known. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have experts like Misiorski in leadership positions at the organization. Sue is PHI’s director of training and organizational development services—as well as former president of the Pioneer Network—and will be sharing excerpts from the organization’s Business of Caregiving case studies on employers who illustrate a “quality care through quality jobs” approach to long-term care. Her first blog on investing in frontline staff is available here.
