Overall, the focus of this event is to provide innovative solutions on critical elder care issues to our care providers, medical professionals, and others in the senior care community. We are bringing together social workers, nursing home administrators, case managers, and patient advocates to increase communication between those caring for seniors and the elderly patients facing long term health and care issues. Also, laws and regulations change in areas such as Retroactive Medicaid, Special Needs Trusts, Exploitation Injunctions, and Electronic Legal Documents. These important changes can provide additional and better options for rehabilitation and continuing care or change how patients receive benefits.

More specifically, this seminar is focusing on the following areas:

  • Elder Exploitation
  • Preparation of a Successful Medicaid Application
  • Guardianship
  • Care Management
  • Recent Changes Affecting Florida Seniors
