(June 26, 2018) – On Thursday, June 21, 2018, the Massachusetts Senior Care Association partnered with QBS, Inc. to provide Geri-Care Trainer training to 20 of its members at their Waltham office. QBS, Inc., located in North Attleboro, MA, is a Crisis Prevention Training and consulting company and its trainings are founded on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Trainers were provided with the tools to de-escalate a situation. Those trained will go back to their nursing centers and share these techniques with all direct care staff, with the ultimate goal being to maintain safe, calm environments for care giving and enjoying a quality of life.
