SELF-DIRECTED PATHWAYS FOR CARE

9 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Memorial Lounge (338 Waterman Building)
SELF-DIRECTED PATHWAYS FOR CARE: New Choices for Elders and People with Disabilities
Recent trends, including demographic transitions and changes in public policy, have resulted in increased demand for community-based long-term services and supports to assist older adults and persons with disabilities in their preferred home settings. Reflecting core social work values, new directions in long-term care aim to promote choice and maximize autonomy.
Come talk with social work practitioners, students, faculty and community partners about new options in long-term services and supports.
Together, we will explore:
- Person-Centered, Participant-Directed Care
- Perspectives of Service Users and Providers
- Ethics of Community-Based Care
Morning munchies will be provided. Three (3) CEUs (1 Ethics) will be available to participants.
RSVP to Fiona Patterson, , by Friday, March 21st.
