The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone in different ways, and it has brought to light many of the challenges our nation faces in supporting the aging population. Additionally, it has highlighted the value of care in the home. At a time when it was important to keep older adults out of the hospital setting, home care helped to meet the health and safety needs of many aging adults. Home care is finally being recognized as an extension of the care continuum and a value to the long-term care system. Join this session to learn more about the lessons learned during COVID-19 and how the growing demand for home care continues.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Realize the impacts of the pandemic on the aging population
- Understand how home care can best support aging individuals and their families
- Recognize the value of home care as part of the healthcare continuum
- Examine case studies where home care is successfully partnering with the healthcare and long-term care sectors
