Persons with cognitive impairment and their care partners experience daunting challenges receiving dementia capable healthcare and related community-based transition services during and after a hospital stay. As many as 25% of elderly hospital patients may have dementia, often without a recorded diagnosis. Best practices in hospital-to-home care transitions have been shown to reduce readmission rates as well as mitigate the potential for poor outcomes. This presentation will introduce participants toHospital2Home, a highly successful care transitions model for people living with dementia with a hospital readmission rate of less than 1%.

  • Participants of this webinar will be able to identify four challenges caring for people living with dementia present to acute care systems.
  • Participants of this webinar will learn about the challenges people living with dementia and their care partners experience when receiving services during and after a hospital stay.
  • Participants of this webinar will be able to identify the aim ofHospital2Home to help people living with dementia transition safely back to the community through intensive care coordination that starts in the hospital and continues after discharge.
