Family members, professional healthcare workers, and other service providers who give care to older adults confront significant challenges and may struggle to assure high quality care. After viewing the film documentary Care, which offers compelling insights into some of these challenges, Daniel Kaplan, Ph.D., will lead the audience in a discussion of the continuum of elder care services in the United States, its strengths and limitations, and strategies for both providing and coordinating good care to better meet the complex needs of older adults. Family caregivers, students, and healthcare providers are invited to attend and participate in this program.
