Dr. Eleanor Barbera is the author of My Better Nursing Home and a licensed psychologist consulting in long-term care facilities in the New York City area. She frequently lectures on subjects related to psychology, aging, and nursing homes. Dr. El consults with organizations, institutions, and individuals around eldercare issues. In addition to working in direct care, she helps others use psychological insights to build teams and create relationships that lead to thriving people and facilities.
Dr. El has worked in long-term care for over 15 years, and been in the mental health field since she was 19 years old. If you want to learn how psychological insights can transform your nursing home experience, she’s the right person to consult with.
Dr. El knows and understands long-term care from a perspective few others use or know. She uses psychological secrets in her own work and then passes that knowledge along to others in her seminars and workshops.
If you want your residents and staff and families to thrive, you should contact Dr. El. She teaches a range of topics within the field of long-term care. They include, but are certainly not limited to:
How to work with younger residents How to engage families to become part of the team How to create an emotionally healing environment How to help residents with substance abuse and mental health problems How to create activities that energize the whole community And, much, much more! http://www.mybetternursinghome.com/
Many this week have been watching the PBS series on the Roosevelts. But we think there’s an important angle not being addressed, the emergence of the gay rights movement pre-Stonewall. The Stonewall Riots of 1969 are often credited with being a watershed moment that fundamentally altered the course of gay history. This, of course, is true. But it was not thewatershed moment. Long before gay bar patrons rioted against the NYPD and gave momentum to the largest political mobilization of gays and lesbians in history, World War II was setting the stage for Stonewall.
