Webcast tackles long-term living options
Senior Care Resources Session — Living Independently at Home
Today, more and more seniors are staying in their own homes or communities longer, thanks to the development of home- and community-based services designed to support them. Whether you are considering your own options or helping your elderly parents arrange the long-term living solution that best suits them, tune in to part one of a two-part UPMC Senior Care Resources Session webcast on Thursday, Dec. 14, from noon to 1 p.m. The webcast will offer valuable information about the range of support services that are available.
Jointly sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh Institute on Aging (UPIA), the Employee Assistance Program, Human Resources, UPMC HomeCare, and UPMC Senior Living, the educational session will present information about care management, private duty nursing, home health care equipment, Medicare-covered home health services, and more. The second part of this series, which will be held in the spring, will focus on long-term care facility options. Watch Extra! for more information.
