Many older adults, including those with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias and those with intellectual of developmental disabilities (I/DD), may benefit from support with healthcare, financial, and other major life decisions. This training provides an overview on the ways that Aging Life Care Managers™ can assist older clients with decision-making.
The goal for this webinar is to enhance elder service providers knowledge and skills around supporting clients' decision-making.
Participants will be able:
- to identify the main types of decisions that older clients may require support with and consider these decisions in the context of case examples.
- to learn to identify clients who could benefit from support with healthcare, financial, and other decisions.
- to understand different types of forms and documents related to decision-making.
