Serving Seniors Supportive Services

Did you know that the MAP Hospital to Home Partnership (H2H) is an innovative initiative which helps counties divert hospital based readmissions by providing access to home and community based services for older adults?

This is but one example of how counties are working to efficiently and effectively administer valuable but limited resources while empowering senior patients to have more control over their care.

At the 2017 MACo Winter Conference learn more about how counties are leveraging public and private partnerships to improve care coordination and achieve better outcomes for their senior residents.

Title: Serving Seniors Supportive Services

Description: Counties provide a diverse array of services and initiatives to assist older adults. These individuals have a wide range of needs: screening for benefits, finding housing, health evaluations, legal resources, and accessing services in their homes and communities are just a few. Counties work efficiently and effectively to administer valuable but limited resources to help address those concerns. In this session learn how counties are leveraging local, state, and national resources as well as forming the necessary partnerships to improve the lives of older adults in their communities.
