People living with dementia are at a higher risk for institutionalization. Community based supports and services help people living with dementia age in place for as long, and as safely as possible. Those living alone with dementia are even more vulnerable since they often lack the organization and advocacy skills needed to access essential support services. In this presentation we use case studies to demonstrate ways that complex chronic care management bridges medical and social care services for vulnerable populations, specifically for people living alone with dementia who have limited resources. We propose reasons for providing highly accessible, specialized, and flexible care management services and share practical resources and strategies that help people living with dementia remain in their community.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Understand and learn how to address barriers to care for people living with deme
- Learn how to create a social service safety net
- Discuss reasons for greater integration between medical and social care services for patients with dementia
- Demonstrate reasons why patients with dementia require highly accessible, specialized and flexible services
