Ignoring the warning signs that an older adult needs some assistance will likely lead to the kind of dependence that they are trying to avoid. This webinar will provide some easily identifiable signs to look for, including physical symptoms and mental or emotional changes, loss of attention signals and environmental clues.

Participants in this web seminar will:

  • Learn to identify the warning signs of failing health in older adults
  • Gain insight into some common fears related to aging
  • Discover ways to ward off frailty and help care for the entire older adult: mind, body, and soul
  • Earn one hour of  *free* continuing education credit by attending the event and completing a CEU survey
