Topic:  Horticultural Therapy’s benefits in Long Term Care Facilities 1 CE

Speaker: Lorraine Lee ACC, CDP, M.Ed., Certificate UNC Therapeutic Horticulture 

Horticultural Therapy is as old as man and woman have been on the Earth. From ancient Egyptians making fabric from flax and cotton and using plants to help heal the sick to volunteers in hospitals during WWII using gardens to heal returning soldiers suffering from “shell shock” (PTSD).

Today gardeners are sharing their talents and experience to bring community gardens to at risk children. incarcerted individuals seeing solace and often a new vocation upon release, adding nature to memory challenged people in long term care facilities and hospitals helping brain injured and stroke victims.

As an Activity Professional with 30+ years working in the field of memory loss and counseling, I’d like to share my experiences of how gardens both indoors and outdoors will add a new dimension to other Activity leaders’ programming while mentoring facility staff to bring the outdoors in after the program ends and find moments of solace for them as they work in what’s often a very emotionally difficult career. 


Topic: Loneliness in long term care : how to engage residents

Speaker: Thomas Letourneur BA & Benjamin Sumi MA 


In this session, we will talk about loneliness in long term care. Often considered a fatality, there are (innovative) ways to better engage residents with their family, friends and carers. One of them is called Famileo and it allows a resident to receive every week a personal printed family newsletter, written by their family, specifically for them. It contains messages and pictures provided by the family over the past week. This family magazine delivered every Monday is an activity itself. Residents love talking about their family news with other residents and employees of the community.

Benjamin Surmi will explain how Koelsch Communities decided to adopt Famileo to better engage their residents. Thomas Letourneur will talk about how this solution has become a reference in Europe and now is branching out in the US where it is already enjoyed in dozens of American communities.

All attendees affiliated to the NAAP will be able to enjoy a free trial in their community.
