Aging in Place Conference
Aging in Place: A Stakeholders' Conference on Care, Healthcare, Finance, and Law
Friday, June 20, 2014
8:30 am - 3:45 pm
Touro Law Center, in collaboration with Touro College School of Health Sciences and with New York Medical College's Center for Long Term Care Research and Policy, will host the inaugural session of the conference “Aging in Place: A Stakeholders' Conference on Care, Healthcare, Finance, and Law” on Friday, June 20, 2014, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.
Through the conference, approximately 40 speakers and field experts have been invited to bring expert information and analysis of the latest developments in the field. The goal is to first calibrate and define the problems encountered by senior citizens as they attempt to maintain meaningful and safe lives in the community and then elicit a critical analysis of the changes that ideally should be made to improve the way we, as private and public stakeholders, address those challenges. The second session of the conference, scheduled to be held on September 18th invites participants to join in facilitated working sessions on innovative models, policies, proposals for legal change, and possible demonstration projects.
