Challenging but Successful!
Hosts: Bryan Reynolds and Kristin Davenport
Guests: Shannon Braun, Molly Prues, and Laura Lamb.
A brand new episode of the ERS Linkage Podcast is here! Join Hosts Bryan Reynolds and Kristin Davenport for Episode 50. We have an especially good one for you.
We'll hear from Shannon Braun, director of ERS' Center for Memory Support & Inclusion, telling us about a variety of programs she has created in cooperation with other organizations, such as the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati Art Museum, Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati Opera, American Sign Museum, the Giving Voice Foundation, and A-Marika Dance Company in Sharonville, where the Dancing to Remember program happens.
Then we hear some exciting ideas from Molly Prues, who is the founder and CEO of VistaLynk. She offers suggestions about how caregivers for loved ones can also care for themselves in various ways. She also tells about a program she offers to caregivers, using self-assessment workbooks and other learning methods to help caregivers create "Action Plans" to improve some necessary skills that can make it easier for them to provide care while making life easier for them as well. It's a very insightful interview.
Finally, President and CEO Laura Lamb looks back at four major ERS accomplishments during 2022, which she calls a "Challenging, but Successful" year. Among those are improvements at Episcopal Church Home under the Master Plan, including the recent opening of Lyndon House apartment-style living, and nearing completion of the Dudley Square patio homes. She also looks ahead not only to 2023 but also to the ERS vision for what it wants to be in 2030.
