AMDA Foundation Invites Louisville Residents to LTC Town Hall
The AMDA Foundation, in partnership with the City of Louisville, Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the University of Louisville, is proud to invite the public to the AMDA Foundation Town Hall: Learning About Quality Long-Term Care for You & Your Loved Ones. The event will be 12:30-2:00 PM, Saturday, March 21, at the Kentucky International Convention Center, 221 S. Fourth St.
Individuals interested in learning about taking care of loved ones in long-term care, long-term care for themselves, or caring for elders in general are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to interact with leading health care experts.
A panel of long-term care experts who not only treat patients in long-term care, but have made the tough decisions related to long-term care and their families will give brief presentations on their experiences in the roles of both professionals and family members. The panel will be comprised of long-term care medical directors, physicians, nurses, and a representative from Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer’s office. Following brief presentations, the audience will be encouraged to engage panel members and ask questions.
“The key to providing quality long-term care is not solely educated and experienced medical professionals,” says AMDA Foundation President Paul Katz, MD, CMD. “It’s open communication and engagement between those professionals and proactive patients and families. We invite residents of Louisville and the surrounding area to the town hall not only to learn, but to begin the conversations vital to providing our loved ones with the highest quality of care.”
This event is being held in conjunction with AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine’s Annual Conference 2015. The AMDA Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advance the quality of life for persons in post-acute and long-term care through inspiring, educating, and recognizing future and current health care professionals.
