Creating a care plan as unique as the patient or loved one can be series of trial runs. Often, the family jumps to a decision only to find out that they made the wrong one.
This one-hour session provides practical, ready-to-use conversation starters and coaching tools to help you evaluate your patient’s cognitive, physical, social engagement and financial status and guide the family to the best care decisions for their older loved one. Discussion topics cover difficult conversations about driving privileges, cognitive changes, home safety concerns, daily routines, in-home or facility care and elder abuse.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Evaluate one’s cognitive, physical, social engagement and financial status.
- Apply communication strategies to lead discussions on one’s lifestyle and abilities.
- Create a healthy daily routine.
- Recognize elder abuse.
