Elder Care for Native American and
The population of Native American and Alaska Native adults 55 and older is expected to more than double over the next 40 years. Native elders often need services earlier in their lives than do non-Natives. Will your community be prepared to provide care to its elders when they need it?
Setting up and running an elder care initiative can seem like a daunting task. From identifying community needs, to deciding how best to address them, to locating funding and partners to deliver needed services, it can be a major undertaking. This class was developed to assist you. Whether you want to start a new program, add services to an existing program or just learn about best practices to help you develop a proposal, this program will cover it. You'll learn what is right for your community, how to partner with state and local governments to conserve resources and how to plan a program that will provide services to your elders throughout their lives. We'll also cover the creation of an Elder Protection Code as a way of combating the abuse that many elders experience. Plus, we'll assist you in drafting or revising your tribe's Elder Protection Code.
