You and your Learning Team are part of a geriatric consulting firm that has been asked to give a presentation at a local community center entitled “Living Environment Comparisons.”
Your contact at the community center told you that the presentation is going to be for adult caregivers seeking information about different living environments for their aging loved ones. (This could include sons and daughters caring for their parents for example.)
Within the presentation, your contact asked you to specifically address the following questions:
Exclusive of skilled nursing and assisted living, identify at least two living alternative living environments for an aging population. What are the main differences? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?
What are two specific regulations governing assisted living facilities?
What types of services do assisted living facilities offer? What types of clients do they serve?
What are the common sources of reimbursement for assisted living? What affect might these have on care?
What governing bodies oversee skilled nursing facilities?
What are the common sources of reimbursement for skilled nursing? What affect might these have on care?
What resources can be used to select an appropriate facility? How can people find these sources?
How have philosophies of technology-based living progressed over the last 10 years? How might they progress over the next 10?
Create a 15- to 20-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes for each slide addressing these core questions.
Include detailed speaker notes with at least five peer-reviewed references.
