Home is where seniors want to stay. However, most who reach the age of 65 will be unable to care for themselves at some point without assistance. The truth is, traditional care and programs will not meet the needs of the growing aging population. Home care plays an important role in filling these critical gaps. This presentation outlines how home care services fit into the healthcare landscape. It will also review best practices for health systems to partner with home care to change health outcomes for aging adults, navigate the daily challenges of aging and provide them with needed support.
