Achieving success as an adult day care provider is predicated on one’s ability to understand and successfully deal with a diversity of day to day issues that the client encounters and then presents in various behaviors. Mastering these daily issues can be a huge challenge that can hinder or help a provider. Learning to successfully navigate these emotional situations is done with a variety of learned approaches including how to redirect negative emotions and behaviors, how to diffuse conflict between clients, and with suggestions for staff surrounding these behaviors. The attendee also will learn how to help the clients achieve mental stability without breaking the consumer’s spirit and the staffs as well.
