Making the Difference:
Improving Outcomes for Older Adults in Alameda County
Presented by Senior Services Coalition of Alameda County
As we age, the supportive services that we receive at home and in the community can have a profound influence on our health. Understanding the links between community-based supports and health for older adults, and moving beyond traditional silos in planning and delivery, can achieve the triple aim of improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs of health care.
Making the Difference will convene community-based service providers, health care professionals, health and social services agency leaders and policy makers in Alameda County. Together we will examine recent developments in policy, financing and collaborative innovation in the delivery of care for older adults.
Join us for a rewarding day!
