Aging in Place: Addressing the Needs of Elder Patients in the Home Setting

MLMIC Insurance Company has identified taking care of the aging population as an important issue physicians will face not only today but well into the future. We are delighted to offer a CME program, in collaboration with the New York Chapter of the American College of Physicians, dedicated to keeping patients safe and healthy in their own home while they age.

One of the most difficult aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic was the isolation many elderly patients encountered, whether as patients in a long-term care facility, or even in their own homes. America’s aging population is increasing. In fact, New York ranks fourth in the nation in the number of individuals aged 60 and over at 4.6 million. By 2030, this population is expected to reach 5.3 million. MLMIC anticipates that in the coming years, more patients will strive to age in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by family and friends.

Join us as a panel of physician and legal experts discuss the complexities of caring for elderly patients in the home setting, address the liability risks associated with this care environment and offer strategies to mitigate the risks associated with caring for the patient aging in place.

This program will be offered in two 90-minute sessions. Each session awards 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Creditâ„¢.  The first session will discuss managing the risks of the elder patient in the home setting. At the end of this one-hour session, participants will be able to:

  • identify the complex issues that elderly patients and their families have encountered since the beginning of the pandemic;
  • develop strategies to address some of the liability issues associated with at-home care; and
  • identify the limitations of virtual care for at-home patients, and the importance of recognizing signs of elder abuse and/or neglect. 

Part Two will discuss social determinants of health.  At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to identify:

  • the resources necessary to help facilitate a proper care support structure for at-home patients and their families;
  • the challenges associated with treating patients that have limited and/or declining health literacy; and
  • best practices to effectively communicate with a diverse patient population.

MLMIC is proud to have collaborated with NYACP in bringing these presentations to New York physicians, and they can be found with our other CME offerings in your MLMIC portal.Should you have any questions please contact Matt Lamb, Esq., at or 518-786-2762.
