Part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care®
Includes complimentary CEUs
Home is where older adults want to stay. Nine out of 10 Americans that are ages 65 and older would like to remain in their homes for as long as possible. However, nearly 70 percent of those who reach age 65 will at some point be unable to care for themselves without assistance. While homecare is a seemingly young industry, it was created to meet the fast-growing and changing needs of the aging population. This web seminar will discuss the value of homecare on a rapidly growing aging population.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Understand the needs of a growing aging population and older adults’ desire to age in place;
- Realize the scope of homecare services and the benefits to elders;
- Learn about how homecare fits into the continuum of care; and,
- Help families better understand homecare and help them find homecare resources.
