Session II : “The 4 Ms: A Framework for an Age Friendly Health Care System”

 The majority of older people want to age in place, which is possible with the right support and planning. This multi-part roundtable series will bring together experts and thought leaders to help us understand some of the vital components needed to age well in the community.

Presenters will share the work of the John A. Hartford Foundation to promote initiatives that support age-friendly care, including their emergency room pilot program designed to meet needs of older patients in the ER.
