VOYCE is delighted to announce the return of the Annual Long-Term Care Conference.
The Annual Long-Term Care Conference will take place on Wednesday, June 15th at Maryland Heights Community Center, St. Louis, MO.
Conference Theme for 2022:
The theme of the Conference for 2022 is “Care: Who We Are. What We Do. Where We Go from Here.”
The event will provide a reflective exploration of the journey that we have taken in the long-term care community over the past few years, and provide us with new insights into the steps we are still to take. We are delighted to have an excellent program delivered by renowned gerontologists and leaders in the long-term care community.
Lunch is provided for attendees and CEUs are pending for LNHA, SW, CNE, and CLE.
Our keynote speaker is Dr. John Morley, an internationally renowned and respected leader in the field of gerontology who has been at the forefront of research and education for over thirty years.
Dr. Morley will provide a reflective insight and overview of how COVID19 has affected our long-term care community and the ways in which we deliver care. Dr. Morley will discuss the geriatric syndromes and how COVID19 affected them. Dr. Morley will explore the role of physical exercise in aging and the importance of mental exercise to prevent and reverse aging syndromes.
