Supportive Services and Caregiving for Older Rural Adults
Hosted by the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services
- Date: 12/17/2019 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
- Introduction: This webinar will present ways that HHS can make progress to challenges faced by older rural residents by adopting age-friendly principles.
Rural residents are older, have poorer health outcomes, and face greater rates of poverty compared to their urban counterparts. Rural older adults living in the United States face unique and persistent challenges — such as transportation, fragmented delivery and financing of care, and social isolation — which affect their ability to receive necessary supportive services and caregiving. This webinar will present ways the committee believes HHS can make progress to combat these challenges by consolidating resources and adopting age-friendly principles in federal programs, expanding telehealth knowledge and availability, and researching the delivery of public insurance for the most vulnerable residents.
