Assistant Professor Daniel Kaplan

Assistant Professor Daniel Kaplan

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.

Dr. Kaplan is a licensed clinical social worker with a certificate in advanced clinical practice in gerontology. Dr. Kaplan is an Assistant Professor in the Adelphi University School of Social Work, where he teaches social work practice and gerontology courses. He is the former National Director of Social Services for Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and an experienced social work clinician and supervisor. His primary research focus is optimizing the quality of home and community based care services to meet the needs of people with dementia.
