In partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the Mass Senior Care Foundation is working with facilities across the Commonwealth to promote resident centered care and reduce the atypical use of anti-psychotic medications. Dr. Susan Wehry, (front, second from left) Commissioner of the Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living in Vermont, designed the training curriculum called OASIS.
