Nursing Home v. Assisted Living (and Beyond): What to Expect in Long-Term Care Environments from Admission to Discharge

Date: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Venue: North Wing / Town and Country Club  Saint Paul, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $35.00


Deadline to Register: April 21, 2015

Minnesota can boast expanding alternative long-term care models, recent homecare law changes, and unique approaches to housing with services. The abundance of long-term care options is wonderful.  But understanding the sometimes subtle distinctions among them can present challenges for both consumers and practitioners.

A care environment may be a facility, but the facility is also the consumer’s home, evoking a mixture of legal rights, remedies, and conundrums related to the consumer being both a patient and tenant, and the facility having identities as both a caregiver and landlord. Sharpen your skills to answer questions and guide consumers through the legal and strategic distinctions among nursing homes, assisted living, memory care, residential group homes, and beyond at this upcoming CLE presented by the Elder Law Section of the MSBA. 

The CLE features a packed panel of presenters, including frontline legal practitioners, providers, and industry participants. The presenters will walk through three phases of long-term care in facility/home settings: the admissions process and appropriate placement; the provision of care, including assessments, care plans, and care disputes; and considerations for discharge to home or another care provider. 

Registration and breakfast will begin at 8:00 a.m.  Breakfast buffet will include muffins, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, hashed browns, sweet rolls, coffee, tea, and orange juice.
