Webinars & Online Courses

Known for being both practical and lighthearted, Kathy Laurenhue has written more than 40 online courses for Activity Connection, several in a downloadable audio format and all approved for NCCAP CEUs.

With topics ranging from programming related to Grief and End-of-Life Care to Keeping Sane through the Holidays to Quirky Art Appreciation, she also provides both on-site training and customized webinars for national long-term care clients.

We will soon be adding some of those webinars for CEU credit directly on this website. We also offer downloadable, printable, instantly-usable materials.
