It's time to mark your calendars. I will be holding the annual trainings for Residential Care and Senior Center Programs in
May and June; the Quarterly Meetings for hygienists who already have or are considering developing hygiene programs for
seniors will be held in April, July and November.
Here are the details:
All the sessions will be held at the WDHA Central Office in Lynnwood - 19721 Scriber Lake Rd # B, Lynnwood, WA 98036
The Residential Care training will be held on Saturday, May 13th from 9 am to 4 pm. The cost is $1950 with at least $500
down and the balance on a monthly, no interest commitment. The training includes the all-day intensive, a binder of all the
forms, promotional material samples, contract templates, PowerPoint presentations, and various letters of correspondence
that you will be able to modify and personalize with your own information, and 10 hours of one-on-one consultation with me
to help you get your programs launched.
The Senior Center Program training will be held on Saturday, June 10th from 9 am to 4 pm. The cost and terms are the same
as the Residential training, $1950, and this includes the binder of materials specific to the Senior Center programs, with
follow-up, step-by-step consulting as needed.
If you are interested in taking both trainings to be able to diversify your practice, I will discount the price for the two
trainings to $3350, a savings of over $500.
Please reserve your spot in the trainings with an RSVP to this email. I will need time to put the binders together for each of
you and cannot do this at the last minute. If you have hygienist-friends who have talked with you about their interest in
starting their own hygiene practices, please let me know so I can send them this notice for their consideration.
The Quarterly Meetings will also be held on Saturdays at the Central Office:
Saturday, April 1st
Saturday, July 22nd
Saturday, November 18th
All of these will be held from 10 am to noon or 1 pm. These are very dynamic, fun, networking sessions between hygienists
who have programs going and hygienists who are planning to start programs for seniors in their own areas. I have made
arrangements with Michael Broome, the new Executive Director of WDHA, to arrange for conference calling so those of who
who would have difficulty making the drive can call in. You would only be charged on the dates you want to use this option,
and the cost would be minimal - like $10 per session. Naturally, I would need to know if you plan to attend in person or want
to use the call-in option, so please RSVP to my reminders when we get closer to the dates for those meetings.
I look forward to meeting with you over the year and assisting your success every way I can.
Warmest wishes for an excellent year!
