Version of This Event

The costs of hospital readmissions- physical, financial, and emotional- are staggering. If you have a client who is about to return home from a hospital stay, or are a caregiver to an older adult in this situation, this webinar will help to avoid unnecessary readmissions through preparing the home (and yourself) for the older adult’s return. Crucial aspects on what to expect the first day - and first month – after they return home will also be detailed.  

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe four ways to prepare early for an older adult’s return home from a hospital stay.
  • Identify five important tasks to be completed in the first hours after an older adult returns from the hospital.
  • Pinpoint the four best transitional care points for an older adult’s first 30 days back at home.

Presenter:

Molly Carpenter is an author, speaker, trainer and family caregiver, and brings years of personal and professional senior care experience and training to families dealing with dementia care.
