Are you ready for trauma-informed care? LeadingAge Maryland can help

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has mandated the implementation of trauma-informed care for nursing homes that participate with Medicare and Medicaid. Resilience for All Ages is an initiative of LeadingAge Maryland dedicated to equipping individuals and organizations to become more trauma-informed and to advance trauma-informed work with older adults. Resources are available to LeadingAge members for free at LeadingAge National, here. Non-members may purchase the resources here.
