Change is everywhere! It’s a typical part of life, but questions about the rapidly emerging changes in Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act can cause stress for older people, their caregivers, and the professionals who support them. In this workshop, noted speaker, Francis Battisti, Ph.D., LCSW, BCD, will provide health and aging services practitioners with practical and helpful strategies and tips on how to understand and handle the stress that often comes with change.
