Caring for our Frailest Members: A Monthly Idea Exchange - 1 PM ET/ 12 PM CT/ 10 AM PT
All Village to Village Network Members (or soon-to-be-members) are invited to join us on a monthly call to talk about the important topic of supporting our most frail members. As the society ages, it is inevitable that our membership will age as well, so whether your Village is currently serving frail members or preparing to serve them, we will use this monthly call to unpack this complicated programming consideration.
Melissa Susser, Capitol Hill Village's Care Services Manager and licensed geriatric social worker will take questions and moderate the monthly call, which will occur the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 1pm. Topics open to discussion include, but are not limited to: developing a volunteer-based care coordination system, creating healthy boundaries for member service delivery, setting realistic expectations for members and their families, coordinating with local community resources, when to make a referral to Adult Protective Services, etc.
