Description

Overview

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 congregations.

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.

Objectives

After completion of the May 5 webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Advantages of health care/faith community partnerships to health care organizations, faith communities and older members of faith congregations.
  • Models of health care/faith community partnerships.
  • How to get started and sustain relationships with faith communities.

Presenters

Howard Gleckman is the author CHA’s recently released Improving the Lives of Older Adults through Faith Community Partnerships: Healing Body, Mind and Spirit and Caring for Our Aging Parents. He is a senior researcher at the Urban Institute.

Julie Trocchio is CHA’s senior director for community benefit and continuing care.

Who should attend?

This webinar will be relevant for leaders in the following areas: mission, pastoral care, community benefit, long-term care, nursing and sponsorship.
