Event description

Description

Over 10% of the Atlanta population is a person older than 65, many living on their own--and with dementia affecting 1 person in 9 over age 65 it's easy to see the dimensions of a growing challenge.

The Living Alone with Alzheimer's Summit agenda will include conversations with persons who are navigating life with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, an overview of the numbers and types of single person households they live in, health and social risk factors such as social isolation, and ethical dilemmas to consider. Solutions providers from social services, health care and technology sectors will be featured.

Who should attend?

Persons living with dementia (including Alzheimer's, Lewy Body, FTD, and others), caregivers, administrators and staff from care communities, Alzheimer/dementia care providers, dementia friendly community leaders, health care systems, elder abuse prevention efforts, elder care managers and attorneys, hospital emergency department staff and organizations directing care systems for persons dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.

Community Solutions

The final portion of the meeting will be a forum for networking to identify potential partners in Atlanta to work on this issue, especially as it impacts hospital stays and readmissions.
