4 Pillars For Creating A Sense Of Community In Senior Care

I recently came across a story on McKnight’s Long-Term Care News that really resonated with me. Martie Moore, a frequent contributor, talked about the idea of creating a sense of community in the workplace.
Moore says a recent study found that due to the pandemic, people are craving a sense of community more than ever before. She then discusses the four pillars of community, developed by two Vanderbilt University psychologists: Membership, influence, meeting needs and shared emotional connection. I did some digging into the ideas behind their theories and started thinking about how senior care organizations can foster a stronger sense of community in their own communities.
