#ProviderChats on Tuesday, May 10th

Katherine Merullo


On Tuesday, May 10th Provider Magazine will host the next Twitter chat on Elder Care and the Women at 1 PM Eastern Time.  Follow along for the hour on Twitter using #ProviderChats.  During this chat we will discuss the importance of female caregivers both in the family caregiver and the professional roles.  We will hear from experts who talk about innovative ways to provide care for the working women who are also the family caregivers.  We will also discuss the way the US is managing aging and elder care services and how we compare to others.

There is also the important role that employers play with regard to time off, educational programs and non-financial support that is needed.  This is sure to be an informative discussion with a guest panel of experts to guide us. We will also have nursing staff and providers join the conversation with the expertise from the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA) and The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society
