    OHVMA Speaker Session: featuring Melissa Heinlein, PhD, CAVS and Dr. Allison Russell.

    Certification Info:  1 CEU (for OHVMA members only)

    Description:  

    Possibly one of the more difficult aspects of a DVS is engaging with older volunteers who have mental challenges such as dementia, Alzheimer’s or other physical ailments that prevent them from effectively performing their role.  Melissa Heinlein, Chief Voluntary Service at Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs Medical Center (located in Philadelphia, PA)  and Dr. Russell will share actions to take and provide education on how to work through these challenges.  They’ll also discuss ways to introduce that difficult conversation when a volunteer might be near retirement.
