Fair Housing for Maintenance

  • April 26, 2018 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Make sure everyone on your team receives up -to the-minute fair housing training!

Residents deal with the office at the beginning of the tenancy, but after moving on-site, maintenance usually has more exposure to residents and their problems on an on-going basis. 80% of FH cases come from in place residents! Cases are filed based on poor service but also on inconsistent service (including being too nice and showing a preference for some residents), lack of communication or saying the wrong thing… innocently!

What you don’t know can cost you, your property and your company money.

Webinar: Bullying Among Seniors: Out of the Playground and into Senior Living Communities

  • May 16, 2018 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

It is estimated that 10-20% of older-adults experience some type of senior-to-senior aggression, usually verbal abuse. The actual numbers of older adults targeted are tough to tease out, because these acts often go unreported. This session is designed to increase and/or enhance your knowledge regarding the phenomenon of older-adult bullying, and outline ways to create a safe environment for addressing the targeted individuals as well as the perpetrators.

Webinar Participants Will:

  • Identify the five common types of adult bullies.
    • Describe the characteristics of bullying behaviors.
    • Understand the psycho-social impacts of bullying
    • Identify strategies for dealing with adult bullies.
