People living with dementia are at a higher risk for institutionalization. For those who live alone, the risk is even greater. Community based supports and services can help people age in place for as long, and as safely as possible. In this presentation, case studies will show how complex chronic care management bridges medical and social care services for at risk populations, and specifically, for people living alone with dementia who have limited resources. Presenters will 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
