Older adults want to age in place and live as independently as possible. Connect-Home is an evidence-based transitional care model that empowers patients and their caregivers to manage patients’ serious illness at home, improve function, and prevent avoidable re-hospitalizations. Connect-Home is comprised of a set of protocols and tools that guide acute care facility staff through a four-step process that prepares patients and their caregivers for the transition to home. Health systems are searching for better strategies to reduce unnecessary re-hospitalizations, and Lutheran Services in America sees Connect-Home is an outstanding model that engages older adults in their care transitions and improves their quality of life.
Our presenter will be Mark Toles, a gerontologist at the University of North Carolina School of Nursing. Dr. Toles developed Connect-Home and is a Lutheran Services in America partner in senior services.
