   Join our own culture change pundit Carmen Bowman, MHS, on her monthly web talk show. Actually, it's better than a talk show because you too can join the conversation by asking questions of Carmen and her guests. Carmen's smart look at culture change focuses on a wide variety of topics. She brings an insider's view of regulations, and reports on little changes happening in government, in attitude, in practice. Each month she will share culture change news and updates, amusing and heartwarming stories, and interview a guest on a relevant and timely topic.

Topic for September 18, 2015:
Creating Rampant Normalcy


This month's Guest:

Glenn Blacklock, NHA 

Action Pact Consultant

Do you desire to bring normalcy to your residents’ lives?

Nationally known for successfully bringing normal life pursuits to nursing home residents, Glenn will share how to accomplish this, from his dual perspective as a recreation therapist and innovative administrator. He challenges what it means to be “frail.” Hear how residents have ventured out of the community to climb trees, navigate rivers, go boating, fishing, motorcycling; and also ventured inside the community, engaging their talents and pursuing wellness. Glenn encourages others to look at their home and community through residents’ eyes – where a good life every day is within their reach. Invite your whole team to do this together; it can’t be limited to one department anymore. Consider moving away from traditional “activity programming” to engaging residents with real life and what the Pioneer Network calls “rampant normalcy” -- all day, every day!
