The Future of Participant Direction SEPT 23 FINAL.wmv
This webinar, part of the “The Generations Education” series, will look at factors such as changing demographics due to the aging of the baby boomers, the increasing diversity of America’s older adults and key provisions in the Affordable Care Act. It will examine how these factors might affect the commitment to and development of participant direction options. This web seminar will also discuss reasons for pessimism and reasons for hope regarding the central role participant direction will play in the future of aging services. It will examine philosophical biases, systems constraints and possible impacts of the expansion of Fair Labor Standards Act protections for homecare aides, and the growth of managed long-term services and supports. The session will conclude with ideas for sharing best practices, developing quality measures and a standardized way to collect program information on participant direction, as well as thoughts for a model training curriculum.
