NJHA Conference and Event Center, 760 Alexander Rd., Princeton, N.J. 08540
OVERVIEW: New Jersey’s annual assisted living resident profile survey has demonstrated that residents are aging in place and new residents are older and have more complex healthcare needs when they come to live in assisted living communities. As these trends continue, communities will continue to grapple with advance care planning and the challenging conversations surrounding the clinical capabilities of assisted living communities as well as the expectations of families, residents and staff. This half day program will help communities’ administrators, nurses, social workers and others involved in the advance care planning understand the issues from different perspectives and provide practical strategies for more effective advance care planning.

1. To clearly understand the advance care planning tools and resources appropriate for different assisted living residents.
2. To enhance participants’ knowledge about the palliative care journey.
3. To learn the clinical capacity of your assisted living community to address advance care needs of residents.
4. To learn how to effectively work with families and residents in a culturally competent manner that minimizes and manages conflict.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Assisted living community administrators, nurses, social workers and others involved in advance care planning.
