Eldercare professionals know better than anyone that older adults who are hospitalized sometimes return home in a significantly altered state. Alternately, they may not return home at all. Based on compelling new research, in this web seminar presenter Molly Carpenter discusses the risk of hospitalization for older adults. She also will outline five ways to help keep older adults out of the hospital, and barriers that could prevent them from remaining healthy and at home. The web seminar will feature free resources, including a “Five Ways to Prevent Senior Hospitalizations” guide and a Hospitalization Risk Meter that will help assess an older adult’s risk of hospitalization. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe five ways to help keep elders out of the hospital;
  • Explain at least six barriers that could put an older adult at risk of hospitalization; and,
  • Identify at least five resources that can help keep older adults remain safe and healthy at home.
