The Altarum Institute, with a grant from Michigan Health Endowment Fund, is partnering with staff in long-term care settings throughout Michigan to train them about them about the severe social isolation and loneliness that impacts nursing home residents. The training is provided through the WellbeingTREE online learning action network and is available for all types of clinical staff in these facilities. The goal is to improve the quality of current nursing home staff's care to its residents.
