“One in five (20%) nursing home residents experienced aggression by another resident, including negative, unwelcome verbal, physical and sexual interactions.” —Cornell University prevalence study on resident-to-resident aggression.


Join us to learn the tools needed to support staff to recognize, manage, and reduce negative resident interactions.
