Hospital to Home: Preparation for Seniors

Program: The costs of hospital readmissions—physical, financial, and emotional—are staggering. If you are a caregiver to an older adult in this situation, this web seminar will help to avoid unnecessary readmissions through preparing the home (and yourself) for the older adult’s return. Crucial aspects on what to expect the first day—and the first month—after they return home will also be detailed.
