COURSE DESCRIPTION

The shift from skilled nursing centers to home was already a trend in post-acute and long-term care (LTC) prior to COVID-19, but the pandemic kicked that trend into high gear. Patients who had typically been discharged from acute to post-acute settings were instead discharged directly from the hospital to home.

The intent was to avoid the elevated risk associated with congregate living settings. But even as those risks were reduced, many of the new referral patterns remained in place. Given that these non-centralized services have shown significant cost savings over institutional models, payers, consumers, and the government are all pushing toward delivering post-acute and long-term care services in the home wherever possible.

As LTC at Home becomes more prevalent, how can brick-and-mortar care providers–both nursing facilities and assisted living communities–adapt? There are certainly challenges, but is there a silver lining as well? Attend this webinar to learn about LTC at Home—the possibilities, limitations, and opportunities.

Join this free webinar to:

  • Identify the market dynamics driving the growth of LTC at Home

  • Explain the basic requirements, limitations, and challenges associated with LTC at Home

  • Describe the role senior care providers can create for themselves in this evolving LTC continuum
