3 min read



OpusVi is pleased to partner with CHI Living Communities (CHI Living) to bring advanced practical training in memory care to all their employees. For a growing organization of approximately 3,000 employees and 2,000 residents in their care, Memory Care Orientation: Essentials in Person-Centered Care will train professionals across seven states and have continuous impact as CHI Living expands its reach. Together, CHI Living and OpusVi are redefining the standard of training for senior living staff through this custom workforce solution.

“Our comprehensive orientation program takes a person-centered approach to memory care. Through practical skills development rooted in a fundamental understanding of memory loss, this custom solution was designed to reflect CHI Living’s goal of providing unmatched care and high quality of life to all of their patients. The training will also teach coping mechanisms for stress management and wellness on the job, to the benefit of both senior living employees and the seniors under their care.”

This partnership marks OpusVi’s first venture into workforce development specific to senior living, an area that the organization is excited to expand into. Following the initiation of this custom solution with CHI Living, OpusVi plans to scale the program and offer it to health systems and assisted living organizations across the sector.

“Senior care, home health, and post-acute care are exciting and developing spaces. We have provided leadership development to CHI Living for some time and we are proud they are taking the next step with us. Not only will we educate thousands of their caregivers by working with CHI Living and their teams, we will also collaborate with other groups to ensure up-skilling and development is occurring sector-wide with best-in-class education.”
