The event is open to nurses in the Hudson Valley who are actively seeking or may be interested in careers in the home health care industry. An educational seminar, titled “Caring for the Carers: The Importance of Strength, Patience, and Emotional Detox for Nurses,” will be presented by Dr. Lawrence T. Force, Ph.D., LCSW-R. Guests will enjoy a selection of fine wine and cheese throughout the event.
Dr. Force has spent over 30 years as a practitioner, academician, administrator, and researcher for both the private and public sector in the field of aging and developmental disabilities. His work as the founder of AgePlan, a national advocacy and training organization, as a professor at Mount Saint Mary College, and as director of the Center on Aging & Policy have earned him national recognition.
“It’s estimated that 1.3 million additional jobs in the homecare field will be added through 2020,” said EverCare President/CEO Sylvia McTigue. “As EverCare continues to grow its nursing team, we want the nurses from our community to get to know our collaborative family of home care professionals. We feel this reception is a wonderful way to introduce them to our strong employee-focused culture and the personal rewards and flexibility available in the field of home care.”
