Healthcare Council will host the third part of the Community Conversations series of programs on March 22, 2019 at the Jack C. Robinette Conference Center. Two national, expert speakers, will share their work in helping “seniors age in place” and facilitate and interactive discussion at the program.
The first speaker, Alisha Sanders, is the director of Housing and Services Policy Research for the Office of the LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston, in Washington, D.C. She will share her work, which focuses on strategies and policies that link affordable housing settings with health and supportive services for older adults with lower income to successfully age at home.
The second speaker, Peter Bolling, M.D., is a professor of Internal Medicine and chair of the division of Geriatric Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). His work is centered on improving care of people with advanced chronic illness with a focus on home-based care. He was also instrumental in developing the Independence at Home Act (IHA), which became section 3021 of the Affordable Care Act.
The program is designed for providers from across the continuum of care, consumers, policy makers, thought leaders, community agencies and funders, to learn about models of care and emerging trends in care for older adults.
