USofCare Webinar: Realities of Eldercare During COVID-19

Last week, USofCare hosted a webinar discussing the challenges of caring for elders and other vulnerable populations during COVID-19. The webinar, sponsored by AARP, brought together experts from the provider, advocate and caregiver community to share their experiences and recommendations. We’ve witnessed the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on our most vulnerable populations including those with chronic conditions and the elderly. It’s critical we take those lessons to improve our response to COVID and future care crises.
