By Abigail Poh  I first joined LeadingAge PA during the summer of 2018 as a communications intern. This spring, I received the opportunity to work with this wonderful organization again as I completed the final semester of  my undergraduate career.

By Marti Lawson, Director of Business Development  As we are all adjusting to the "new normal" during this worldwide pandemic, we want to emphasize the importance of showing appreciation to the ones who go above and beyond every day. We're proud of the thousands of dedicated associates on the frontlines of this crisis. Their tireless efforts are helping to save the lives in our communities.

By Jeremy Neely, Chair, LeadingAge PA Board of Directors  When I was sworn in as Chair of LeadingAge PA back in June 2019, I never would have guessed that months later we would be weathering a global pandemic. As our state and country begins the process of reopening, we continue to be challenged to protect the well-being of our residents. It would be easy to simply follow along, but I encourage you to stay the course and not rush back to normal.

By Randy Sheaffer  Over 30 years ago, when I started my first job in long-term care, I naively expected the work to be a low-key affair. After all, weren't nursing homes sleepy, calm places that people called rest homes? It did not take long to appreciate that the staff's work was hard and fast-paced, the regulations were countless and complex, and there was a continuous stream of day-to-day challenges and problems.

By Anne Henry You might think it is difficult to find moments of joy at a time when long-term care providers are struggling to find and train staff, secure personal protective equipment, and receive helpful guidance from the government. It can be tough to find joy when all around you people are tired and anxious about the uncertainty, but, joy is also there--often in small doses, if we are open to finding and receiving it.
