What:

The landscape in services to improve the quality of care for older adults and persons with disabilities by community based organizations is prompting a new business model emerging around us. Your organization’s future and financial viability will rely in part on mastering this new knowledge, and adapting to new ways of delivering on your mission. 

This educational program is designed to help you and your CBO overcome one of the biggest challenges in this transformation – the major challenges and obstacles presented by data and technology management. This program is another building block in the work being done by the Aging and Disability Business Institute to help you and other CBO leaders build and strengthen partnerships between community-based organizations (CBOs) and the health care system. 

This three hour program design includes presentations and discussions with experts and practitioners working to advance the use of technology to capture and report data that ultimately demonstrates improved overall health and well-being of older adults and persons with disabilities.  We encourage the participation of CBO leadership teams, and individuals are welcome too, to hear from CBOs and industry partners who are working on strategies for data collection and exchange. Participants will learn about the process for deciding what data is actually needed by their organizations and they will hear from experts on resources that are available, or soon will be available, to guide teams through the process of capturing the work of social services into measureable and understandable data components that will translate into reimbursement for services delivered.

Why: 
  • Think through the technology needed to demonstrate improved social determinants of health outcomes to health care contracting entities
 
  • Articulate organizational information technology needs
 
  • Understand funding and IT development resources that can assist with the needed technology and point to creative resources that could reduce costs/offer in-kind contributions

ASA Chicagoland Roundtable - Human Longevity – What is Life Expectancy?

Friday, August 3, 2018
8:30 am – 10:30 am

Location:

Professional Building

Searle Conference Center
Elevator II 5th floor 542 Brainard
Chicago, IL 60612

There is a debate amongst gerontologists regarding the extent of the “real” life span for humans.  Recent studies have raised the proposition that for people who survive past 105, the predictability of when death will occur plateaus at a level of 0.5.  Thus, certain authors suggest that the human lifespan is limitless.  

This session will discuss the current understanding of life expectancy and the questions raised about it, what it means to the older person you serve and support, and what can be expected going forward.  Our expert panelists and (through your questions and contributions) you, will contribute to the discussion of this very current topic.

ASA Chicagoland Roundtable - Dementia Friendly America: Forging New Roles for All of Us

Chicago, IL 60612

Dementia Friendly America (DFA) is a national movement to engage communities in planning, education, outreach, collaboration, and advocacy to maximize the quality of life, community participation, and independence for people living with dementia and their care partners. It personifies the belief that people with chronic health conditions prefer to remain in their own home as long as possible. 

DFA is the joint effort of thirty national agencies to create natural support networks within communities to meet the dramatic increase in dementia over the next decades if there are no medical breakthroughs to prevent, slow, or cure these diseases. The DFA movement demonstrates how all aspects of community life can naturally support the inclusion of people with dementia and their families. The panelists will:

Share personal challenges and concerns that arise and how the community can best support independent living during the early stages of memory loss.

Explain how Illinois is partnering with Dementia Friendly America at the state and community levels.

Demonstrate how focus groups conducted with people in the early stage of dementia and our partners can identify cultural differences in stigma associated with dementia, caregiving, and accessing community supports.

Share two approaches a community can take in supporting the needs of people with dementia and their caregiver(s)/family: Memory Café, and Tales and Travel Memory Program.

Location:

600 S Paulina 
Room 994AB, 9th Floor
Chicago, IL 60612

Join us at the next Chicagoland ASA Roundtable on April 13th, when journalist and author Mark Miller will join us to discuss his new book, Jolt: Stories of Trauma and Transformation. 

Trauma can destroy lives, yet some people not only survive trauma, they bounce back to thrive and grow. Jolt tells the stories of people transformed by growth following trauma, and the new paths that they pursue. Some are on missions to help others or to make things right in the world, while others embark on new careers. Some people simply find that their relationships grow deeper, or seek a stronger spiritual dimension in their lives.

For more than a decade, Mark has researched and written about what motivates people to reinvent their lives. He is a nationally recognized expert on retirement and aging. He is a columnist for Reuters and other news outlets, and has contributed to The New York Times. Mark will be joined by two respondents who will share their professional and personal experiences with trauma. 

Following Mark’s presentation we will have a panel discussion and audience contributions and discussion. Randi Belisomo is a reporter for WGN-TV, and the founder of Life Matters Media, an organization that aims to help people make the terrifying concept of death a part of normal, everyday discussion. Audrey Cantor, LCSW will share her professional perspectives from a career working with older adults and Holocaust survivors. 

Copies of Jolt will be available for purchase after the roundtable, and Mark will be signing his book.

Community Room
Samuel J. Simmons NCBA Estates

Washington, DC
This location is two blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro Station - Green Line

Our April 18 Greater Washington Roundtable program will feature a presentation by Bob Stein, President & CEO of the American Society on Aging. This collaborative, two-year project of the Frameworks Institute in Washington, DC, ASA and seven other aging organizations [*], reaffirmed that as Americans live longer and healthier lives, it's essential that society adjust both its attitudes toward aging and its systems that support and shape wellbeing in later life.  

Understanding this, ASA partnered with seven peer organizations, nine forward-thinking funders [**], and the FrameWorks Institute [***] to figure out how to reframe aging. The findings and recommendations are now available to the field in a new toolkit, Gaining Momentum.  Bob will share the results and describe how to start working with Gaining Momentum Toolkit, which is available without cost to the field, thanks to the financial support of our nine funders. You can find these resources here: http://www.asaging.org/reframing-aging

In our youth-obsessed culture, aging is primarily understood as a personal fate to avoid, not a social issue that demands a public response. The Toolkit, training videos and web seminars have been designed to help advocates, like you, change the conversation on aging, trigger public thinking towards sparking dialogue, shift perceptions, and build support for necessary policy changes.

-Where can older adults, who are living alone, find the social support systems they need and how should they prepare for the journey?
-What are the risks associated with aging alone?
-What are their housing options?
-What are the lessons learned?
-What are the ways to avoid or help avoid isolation and loneliness as an older adult ages alone?

Outcomes of the Roundtable

-Participants will have a much greater awareness of the scope of the issue of Solo Aging.
-Learn about models for creating community services for seniors who have no family support.
-Learn how Solo Agers can protect themselves financially and legally in their later years.

Sister Cities International Social Service Exchange to Optimize the Well-being of Older Adults in Chicago and Shanghai: Reflections from the 2017 Delegates

Full Description: 

Ensuring person and family-centered social and health care services is emerging as a key priority for health and human services globally. Shanghai, a city of 24 Million people, is aging more rapidly than the rest of China, the country with the largest older adult population in the world. Indeed, Shanghai’s aging population currently matches the total population of the Metro Chicago area. Shanghai is testing and culturally adapting models of services and care from around the world as they plan for the future.

Since 2014, CSCI Social Service Exchange has engaged with Shanghai in a mutual yearly exchange of experts in the field of aging. Our goal to learn from each other about best practices, policies and research. This October, eight delegates from Chicago, experts in elder law, social work, geriatrics, clinical care, health professions’ education, research and social services, including housing, travelled to Shanghai to engage with health and social services leaders, tour community based social/health centers, public and private housing, and to exchange knowledge and ideas about policies, financing, health workforce development and research.

This ASA roundtable will highlight what we have learned from our colleagues in Shanghai that may be adaptable to Chicago.
