Cynthia Perthuis, CSA, CDP, CADDCT in partnership with Park Royal Hospital presents – Solving The Isolation Challenge, A training program to help practitioners and families identify the physical and mental challenges with isolation and select activities to engage the client.  This program will be offered at various times beginning in the Summer of 2020.  Cynthia Perthuis is a trained Certified Senior Advisor and Certified Dementia Practitioner and leads the team at Senior Care Authority – New York and Southwest Florida(www.scanyfl.com).  In that role, she and her team support over 300 families a year as they navigate difficult living and life choice decisions.  She regularly makes presentations to caregivers, professionals and the general public on topics relating to life and living options and aging.  Her delivery on these difficult topics is sought after for her communication skills, presentation style and her ability to add some humor to difficult topics.

Prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the isolating conditions for the elderly at home alone led to physical and mental decline.  These conditions increased during the Pandemic as 94% of the world population were quarantined at home away from friends and loved ones. Identify these challenges and discover solutions to alleviate the loneliness and decline.

 This one hour workshop will include lecture and experimentation. Participants will have a chance to discuss solutions. Participants will walk away with lists and options that can be used in the field to assist the client and family with both traditional and high tech solutions.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify physical and mental decline due to isolation
  • Compile a list of appropriate activities.
  • Identify, analyze and schedule various activities
  • Assist a family in developing a list of activities.

 The target audience is Social Workers and Nurses and the program is offered at the Intermediate Level.  This program offers one CE credits.

Cynthia and her team were helpful, professional and caring. She was a great resource for learning about different options, levels of care, and facilities. And now that my mother has been placed, she has remained high touch and showed concern about how my family settles into its new situation. I highly recommend Senior Care Authority.
