Friday, March 16, 10:30 – 11:45 AM Concurrent Sessions


Stop Wasting Time


Brandi Davis, Owner, B. Davis Directions, Windsor, WI

Time is not an infinite resource, and certainly not one that can be wasted when you are overseeing an assisted living

community. In AL, there is always going to be a lot of work to do and never enough time (or people) to do it. This session will clarify where you should allocate your time and identify the time-wasters you need to leave behind.


Assisted Living from the Informed Family Perspective


Rachel Olson, Outreach Coordinator, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin, Madison, WI

Janet Wiegel, Outreach Specialist, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin, Madison, WI

The Alzheimer’s and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin (ADAW) receives frequent requests for education and consultation from those considering the transition to assisted living. Outreach specialists will discuss some of the common dynamics

and decision-making issues involved for individuals and families faced with this life-altering decision. Included in the presentation will be copies of “Making the Decision” and “Residential Care Guide,” as examples of the guidelines and resources ADAW provides the public for helping assess assisted living facilities, staffing, programming, and dementia capability.


Building a Budget from the Ground Up


Glen Weyenberg, CPA, Principal, SVA Certified Public Accountants, S.C., Madison, WI

It’s not just a list of numbers — a budget is a planning tool that reflects an organization’s programs, mission, and strategic plan. Budgeting, planning, and forecasting is a process for determining and detailing an organization’s long- and short-term financial goals. We will discuss the way an organization goes about building this important financial tool.


Mental Health: Working with a Population That Is Often Disregarded


Erica Falk-Huzar, Program Director/President, Deer Path Assisted Living, Inc., Necedah, WI

Samantha Fox, Nurse Practitioner, Deer Path Assisted Living, Inc., Necedah, WI

This session will help you gain the basic experience necessary to serve the mental health population. Our discussion will include goal development in individual service plans, psychotropic medication management, and behavior support plans creation.


Litigation Management: Stuff Happens


Joel Moyer, Account Executive, M3 Insurance, Madison, WI

Patrick Sullivan, Partner, Siesennop & Sullivan, Milwaukee, WI

You are a provider because you have a huge heart. You care deeply about your residents and do your best. Sometimes,

however, even the best intentions can result in a bad outcome. There are several steps you can take to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. One of Wisconsin’s top senior living defense attorneys will give you real-life examples on how to always be prepared to defend your organization.


Defining Person Directed Care and What It Looks Like in Your Community


Jeff McCabe, Director of Support Services at Brewster Village, Wisconsin Coalition for Person Directed Care, Appleton, WI

Through an interactive group process, we’ll define and examine Person Directed Care and the benefits and barriers of embracing this philosophy in your community. We will discuss the language used and develop potential approaches you can apply in your community to adopt Person Directed Care Values.


Can Intergenerational Housing Be the Answer to the Workforce Shortage?


Joseph Gallagher, Project Assistant, JLA Architects, Madison, WI

Join us in tackling one of the toughest challenges facing our industry. We’ll discuss the prospect of inter-generational housing being utilized around the state to address the statewide workforce shortage in assisted living facilities and comparable operations. This session will bring forth existing and past experimental inter-generational housing efforts as well as statistical data comparing the current workforce needs, and statewide college enrollment in medical or closely related fields.
