Webinar: Healthy Brain, Healthy Decisions: Empowering Older Adults to be Smart Decision-Makers

Event Date: 
09.05.2013 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Short Description: 

Presented by MindAlert

Full Description: 

In partnership with the MetLife Mature Market Institute, researchers from the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas and the University of California at San Francisco will present findings from a collaborative study on decision-making. Counter to the pervasively negative view of the aging brain, this seminar will present new evidence showing age does not significantly predict better decision-making, and cognitive control was a better predictor than age on ability to make good decisions. The aging mind, as implicated by this study, may retain strategic decision-making capacity from the fifties to the eighties, given cognitive brain health. This study demonstrates the ability of an older, healthy brain not only to make good decisions, but also to retain robust cognitive performance. Ultimately, efforts to elucidate the potential of the aging mind to maintain and improve sound decision-making capacity will have broad public health benefits to mitigate disadvantageous financial decisions and abuse. By empowering older adults to engage in healthy practices to keep their cognitive skills robust, our growing population of adults in later life will have the confidence to continue to make sound decisions and keep their minds engaged throughout their lifetime.

Crossing the Rubicon: Finding New Roles and Purpose for the Aging Network in the Age of Managed Long Term Care Services and Supports

Event Date: 
07.09.2013 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Short Description: 

Part of the “Conversations with GIA,” Series, sponsored by Grantmakers in Aging.

Full Description: 

Across the country, the pillars of the traditional aging and disabilities service network – Area Agencies on Aging and Centers for Independent Living – find themselves in the midst of a struggle to define a role for themselves in the world of home- & community-based services in the aftermath of states’ decisions to transition their long-term care systems to managed and integrated care.  Responsibility for eligibility determination, functional assessments, service planning and care management will pass to managed care organizations or other vendors in this model. This extraordinarily rapid shift seems to have caught most of these agencies by surprise and the potential threat to their continued existence comes not just from the loss of funding, but also from the realization that they will no longer serve as the gateway and center-of-gravity for the aging and disability delivery systems.  This webinar will help define new roles, purpose and new markets for these vital links in the nation’s aging and disability delivery systems, a pathway that can help these community-based agencies inhabit new roles in the emerging system and serve new audiences, and the expectations that these agencies will need to satisfy in order to perform these functions appropriately and sustainably.
