AHA Calendar of Events – Live on Zoom

Understanding and Working with Older Patients

Betsy Bates Freed

Presented By: Betsy Bates Freed

The US population is rapidly aging, with the last of the Baby Boomers turning 65 in just nine years. This presentation will focus on the developmental, medical, psychological, existential, and logistical needs of older adult clients and patients who will soon represent a much greater proportion of our clinical practices. The unique burden of COVID-19 on older adults will be reviewed as well.

Attendees will learn about elder bias, stages of aging between ages 65 and 100+, common medical comorbidities, clinical presentations of depression and anxiety, suicide risk in older adults, and practical approaches regarding accessibility, communication style, and perspective as we prepare to meet the needs of this diverse population.
