Thanks to the emergence of modern medicine and drugs, the generation of aging parents and their adult children, are facing greater challenges in coping with and adjusting to living longer than expected. The role of the Geriatric Social Worker has expanded from case management into care management; from working with individuals to working with families; and helping the aging adult transition from a life of independence to a growing life of dependency.
This webinar will take time to explore these various roles of the Geriatric Social Worker and the growing challenges of working with our aging population.
1.5 Social Work CE will be provided.
