Linda Farrar is a Registered Nurse and a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator in Kansas. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. Linda began her longterm care career at a retirement center in Wichita, first as a unit supervisor, then the Director of Nursing position. In 2001, she obtained her administrator’s license. She has served elders as Administrator and other administrative positions since that time. In June, 2011, Linda retired from the full-time duties of administration and since that time she has continued to provide nursing and administrative consulting services. During her career, Linda’s passion has been person-centered/person-directed care. Linda believes that through education of staff and strong facility leadership, facilities can provide both quality of care to remain regulatorily compliant and provide quality of life, providing enhanced, personal experiences for elders served. Linda’s passion is to continue to serve elders and their family members in compassionate and person-directed and centered care. Linda is a certified Dementia Capable Care trainer and a certified INTERACT trainer. 

Judy Wineland has worked in several nursing homes involved in Culture Change programs focused on giving the best of care. She worked with community emergency groups in McPherson where the Local Emergency Preparedness Committee (LPEC) was very active in restructuring their county governmental resources and businesses in the community to the government recommended Emergency Preparedness format that uses Incident Command protocols. When she moved to Wesley Towers in Hutchinson, the Reno County LEPC members were active in reformatting to that system and when completed hosted an information training seminar with all first responders. When developing the facility assessment, much of the information needed was already completed from the disaster policy’s work. Judy and her team were able to clearly define needs and communication protocols to enable assistance from local agencies and other community providers in this process.
