Strengthening Nursing Home Policy for Post Pandemic Outcomes
Nursing homes have been ground zero and the “perfect storm” for the coronavirus pandemic. Residents and staff in these facilities account for a disproportionately large share of COVID-19 cases and deaths in the United States. COVID-19 has brought into clear view many problems that have lingered under the surface for years, including low quality of care, a broken payment model, ineffective regulation, and a lack of transparency related to nursing home residents’ health outcomes and experiences. In this session, Dr. Grabowksi will discuss how the pandemic might lead to changes in how we pay for, regulate, and deliver nursing home services.

Demystifying Death: An LCP Attorney and Death Doula’s Perspective on End-of-Life Care
"How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset." ~George MacDonald, scholar & author
Many traditional elder law and estate planning attorneys report spending five minutes or less on advanced care planning with their clients. While we work in a field that addresses the legalities of death and dying, many of us can feel uncomfortable with the topic of death or can feel that medical practitioners are best suited to handle in-depth planning for end of life. The field of End-of-Life Doulas emerged to bridge a gap in care for clients. The role of an End-of-Life Doula is to improve an individual’s quality of life throughout the dying process by offering services to assist them in exploring life meaning and values, creating a plan for the preferred environment, educating families on signs and symptoms of dying, providing respite to caregivers, and processing emotions in early stages of grief. Many of these skills can be incorporated into the practice of advanced care planning to provide more holistic care to clients.

Understanding What Retirees Want: Tailoring Your Services to Meeting Client’s Needs in the Coming “Longevity Revolution”
What Retirees Want presents the culmination of over a decade of research by world-famous “Age Wave” expert Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., and author and consultant Robert Morison. It explores how the aging of the Baby Boomers transforms retirement and the “Third Age” of life, changing lives, businesses, markets, and government programs. In this entertaining, thought-provoking virtual event, Morison will share lessons and insights for elder law and elder care professionals on how to better serve today’s and tomorrow’s elders by understanding their needs and preferences holistically and in-depth. What are the major challenges and opportunities with respect to health, home, family, finances, and providing and receiving care? How is life in the Third Age evolving, both long term and under the immediate influence of the COVID-19 pandemic? What are the keys to connecting with older clients? What organizations are in the forefront? Come discuss these questions and more!
