Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) May 20, 2011
The non-profit National Private Duty Association (NPDA) has announced that it will host a consumer education web conference entitled Creating a Senior Friendly Home to Help Parents Age in Place on June 16, 2011, at 8 p.m. EST (7 p.m. CT). The live and interactive program, which is being held during National Home Safety Month, will provide advice on how to design and furnish a home to create a safe environment for a senior aging at home. The event is free of charge to participants.
“Aging in place is clearly more desirable for aging parents and their families,” said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. “Most seniors want to remain living at home as long as possible. Practicing senior safety at home can accomplish a sense of independence and security for them and peace of mind for you. This program will provide caregivers with the knowledge to address safety and comfort issues.”
The web conference topics include designing a home for senior safety and comfort, addressing changing health needs, appropriate furnishings and ambient technology.
Pre-registration for the event is required. Sign up today by visiting the registration link at http://www.privatedutyhomecare.org.
The NPDA is the first and only association in the country dedicated exclusively to private pay home care providers. The NPDA, a non-profit organization, currently represents more than 1,100 home care agencies in forty-four states and Puerto Rico.
