Founding Year: 2002
The Elizabeth Laskin Educational Fund was set up in the Jewish Home and Care Center Foundation by the family of Elizabeth Laskin. Mrs. Laskin was a resident of the Jewish Home and Care Center. Her family was very appreciative of the care she received, so much so that they donated funds to be used on educational programming for future staff.
How it impacts resident care:
The Elizabeth Laskin Educational Fund supports onsite continuing education for staff and community in the areas of dementia and memory loss, leading to better overall care and quality of life for residents.
On June 1, Nechama Solomon, BSc, MPH, and clinical nutritionist visiting from Israel, educated staff members about her RiMoN Program, an interdisciplinary approach to improving memory care for residents of long-term care facilities. R stands for ‘releasing emotions through EFT: Emotional Freedom Technique.’ M stands for ‘Movement to Music.’ And N stands for ‘nutrition for older adults with dementia.’
The lecture included demonstrations and a hands-on component. Staff enjoyed learning new techniques to apply to resident care.
