 CEU Course Description 

As a focus point for the community, nursing homes connect older adults with a range of critical services and programs, including meals and nutrition programs, transportation services, health and wellness programs, and social and recreational activities.  Therefore, these centers play an important role in promoting emotional health among older adults and increasing the factors that may protect them from suicide.  This CEU course provides an overview of suicide among older adults and how nursing home administrators can help address this important problem.  In addition, this course discusses key strategies that can be used to promote emotional well-being and prevent suicide among older adults and describes recommended steps for carrying out each strategy.
