Elevate Eldercare

May 11, 2022

In honor of National Nurses Week, we convened an all-star panel of nurses from the Green House and Pioneer Network communities to discuss the vital role that RNs, LPNs, and other nursing professionals play in truly driving culture change in long-term care.

You’ll hear real-life examples of how nurses can take small steps that lead to big quality-of-life improvements for elders and people living with disabilities. Nurses already have a natural desire to help others and provide comfort – and with the right leadership and guidance, nurses can form the bedrock of an elder-directed culture at nursing homes and other communal eldercare settings.

Nurses aren’t just pill-distributors and vitals-takers; they’re the eyes, ears, and heart of an organization that can provide the personal connections that make all the difference for elders and families alike.

Today’s panel consists of:

Ivy Gordon-Thompson, Director of Nursing at Green House adopter community John Knox Village

Lora Perryman, LPN, Staff Nurse at Green House adopter community Poydras Home  

Joan Devine, Director of Education, Pioneer Network

Marla DeVries, Chief Learning Officer, The Green House Project

Carol DuMond-Stryker, Project Coach, The Green House Project
