The Washington Health Care Association’s Assisted Living Care Academy provides knowledge, insight, resources, and tools for nurses and lead caregivers providing care in assisted living facilities. It is designed for nurses and caregivers who are new to wellness departments in assisted living settings in Washington and is beneficial for the professional growth and development of executive directors and other long-term care workers wanting to learn more regarding the roles involved in running a wellness department, as well as nursing services in assisted living.

The Assisted Living Care Academy will enhance participants’ ability to manage nursing services, and resident supports in assisted living successfully. Assisted living services require a holistic approach to optimize and maintain—if not improve—a resident’s function, independence, engagement with the environment and others, and maximize well-being and quality of life.

Nursing and caregiving practices in assisted living are driven by residents’ preferences and
supporting them in their choices. In doing so, many assisted living nurses and caregivers find
their role incorporates a variety of activities such as counseling, health education, direct clinical care, medication management, and helping residents access the health care system. An assisted living wellness department leader is a collaborator, promoter of wellness, advocate, educator, and ultimately—caregiver.

WHCA is pleased to offer the Assisted Living Care Academy virtually in 2024. During this multi-day educational event, assisted living leaders will dive into the details and varied tasks and roles that are part of every day for a credentialed staff person in assisted living. This workshop will help nurses and caregivers understand the population they serve, the regulations that oversee their work, and the knowledge, information, resources, and tools it takes to be successful. Please join us in discovering all you need to know about operating a successful wellness department in assisted living.
