  • Effectively targeting and engaging family caregivers through digital advertising

The Role and Benefits of Home Care in Adapting Homes

Learn how home modifications for aging in place can expand the opportunity for a person’s home to be an effective base for health care. There is evidence that updated homes are safer which allows clients to remain clients longer, workers to suffer fewer injuries, and agencies to retain employees longer. Home care providers take varied approaches to updates including the development of assessment tools, making recommendations, offering home modifications in-house, and engaging in partnerships. There are barriers too. But there is no doubt home modifications are part of the future of home care.
NAHC President Bill Dombi will host this webinar featuring Kathy Dodd, a longtime leader in the home care industry, former NAHC board member, and CEO of Lifewise-CHM (Clinical Home Modifications), an innovative home modifications provider, and Louis Tenenbaum, one of the first contractors to specialize in modifications, now a recognized aging in place authority and advocate. Together, they will explore ways to get home updates done and how your agency can benefit from this next wave of in-home services.

New Private Duty Webinar: Taking Action to Make Data-Driven Decisions in Private Duty

Private Duty Home Care at NAHC will present an important new webinar for private duty operators and staff, Technology: Taking Action to Make Data-Driven Decisions in Private Duty. The webinar will air Thursday, January 7, 2021, from 3:00PM to 4:00PM Eastern. 

REGISTER NOW

Making data-driven decisions is a key to success in any business – but the need is exacerbated in the ultra-competitive and low-margin private duty home care market. Using data to identify important trends is no longer considered a “luxury item” for home care agencies and those that are unable to monitor key information will struggle to compete against their better-informed peers.

Objectives

  • Devising a data-driven strategy from the ground up – take stock of what you have now and where you want to be next year
  • Choosing the right metrics for your market – what’s on your home care dashboard?
  • Taking action on the information available – actionable information requires action plans to drive change when positive or negative trends are discovered
