Live Webinar: Thursday, January 28th, from 2pm – 3pm EST

This webinar will show how two content-rich activity products, Activity Connection and Linked Senior’s Celo app, can be used together to enable activity professionals to easily minimize planning time and maximize programming delivery. To make the point, it will use Activity Connection’s March building theme with examples from both sites to illustrate enhancements particularly for one-to-one programming.

Body of Knowledge categories:

7 – Leisure and Aging, 18 – Individualized Care Planning, 19 – Program Management and 21 – Program Types

• Explain and familiarize attendees with the newly launched Linked Senior Celo Basic app as a rich resource of easy to maneuver, computer-based programming

• Illustrate how the new device-based Celo programming can be integrated with the long-established Activity Connection offerings which include both printable and video programming that is refreshed monthly

• Examine how to create more comprehensive programming for the one-to-one interactions that have become so vital by combining the offerings in both sources
