Virtual Series: Addressing the Needs of Elder Patients in the Home Setting

Given the desire of many older persons to maintain independent lives and the increase in America’s aging population, it is anticipated that over the coming years, more patients will attempt to continue the aging process in their own homes.

Join MLMIC and the New York Chapter of the American College of Physicians for an upcoming virtual series “Aging in Place: Addressing the Needs of Elder Patients in the Home Setting.” The presentation will take place over the course of two one-hour Zoom sessions and will focus on the complexities of caring for elderly patients in the home setting.

During the presentations, a panel of physician and legal experts will discuss the liability risks associated with this care environment and will offer strategies to mitigate associated risks.

Part One “Managing the Risks of Elder Patients in the Home Setting,” will take place Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. At the end of this presentation, 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 liability issues associated with at-home care; and
  • recognize the limitations of virtual care for at-home patients and the importance of identifying signs of elderly abuse and/or neglect.

Part Two “The Social Determinants of Health,” will take place Oct. 25 at 7 p.m.

At the end of this presentation, the participants will be able to:

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