Community Health Workers: Working in a Meaningful & Impactful Manner with Older Adults


Meeting Description:
This webinar is specifically targeted to community health workers (promotoras) who want to gain greater insight into working with older adults.
 
We will focus on the social, emotional, and physical natural changes that all older adults experience. We will discuss the importance of serving this population in a meaningful manner in order to be attentive to their personal needs based on their health and mental health status. Learn about:
  • Ageism and some common biases that may impact our interactions with older adults
  • Physical and cognitive changes that happen as we age
  • The social determinants of health and how they affect the social, financial, and physical well-being of older adults
This webinar is offered in English on September 24, and in Spanish on September 27. Both recordings/slides will be made available after the events.
