Episode 20 - A Conversation with Kathryn Brod, President and CEO of LeadingAge Ohio
LeadingAge Ohio is a not-for-profit association that represents over 400 long term care organizations who provide hospice, housing, nursing and ancillary services for older adults throughout the state. Kathryn Brod tells the story of how the approach to this care has evolved to become less restrictive, providing patients with more control over their care. LeadingAge has helped to lobby for better pay and conditions for employees, in response to the staff shortages that face all medical services during the Covid pandemic. She also shares some strategies for addressing employee shortages.
