Today, 13 million older Americans need personal
assistance or other supports. By mid-century, this number is expected to double.
More than 80 percent live at home, cared for family members and friends. Most
frail elders can remain at home with adequate support and assistance. Part of
that support and assistance can come from health care organizations themselves
and from faith communities – parishes, churches, synagogues, mosques and other
This webinar will introduce CHA's new resource of faith community
partnerships and describe how health care organizations can work with faith
communities to support older persons to help them stay at home, as healthy and
independent as possible.
