Version of This Event

Ignoring the common warning signs for when an older adult needs some assistance will likely lead to the kind of dependence they are trying to avoid. This webinar will provide some easily identifiable warning signs that an older adult needs help, including physical symptoms and mental or emotional changes, loss of attention signals and environmental clues.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Learn to identify the warning signs of failing health in older adults;
  • Understand some common fears related to aging; and,
  • Discover ways to ward off frailty and help care for the entire older adult—mind, body and soul.
