The Eldercare Planning and Aging Gracefully course is unique because it will help seniors identify how to age gracefully and manage aging more effectively. The course will also help children of a senior, friends and family who need to assist as a caregiver.
The need for this course was inspired by my experiences as a Nursing Home Administrator observing individuals stressed when they were unexpectedly thrust into a healthcare crisis. The crisis often results in a person needing short term stay or remain permanently due to health issues. This is a four part course that gives information for seniors and children of seniors to begin a discussion or conversation prior to a crisis.
This conversation helps manage a healthcare crisis more effectively and helps with developing plans as one age. Again, most individuals have not had experience with a nursing home placement and as one ages there are important things that a person should do. This education series fulfills a need to educate and help with pre-planning. If you are wondering who should take this course, the answer is any age group.
The course helps seniors understand the many facets to aging gracefully. Seniors will understand what they need to do to prepare financially so that they are assured to have a life plan that is consistent with goals that have been established. The course will identify the important documents. In addition, the course will identify who should have access to your personal information and where this information should be kept. The children of seniors are also a group of individuals who should take the course; the course will help them understand the complexities of assisting loved ones as they age. In conclusion, this four part course will help seniors, the sandwich generation caught between taking care of loved ones and raising a family, or others who may face the responsibility of assisting someone as they age . Planning is important and this course will give you the information to effectively plan and age gracefully without having to take any tests, or have any written assignments.
