(Chelsea Update would like to thank Gretchen Zale for the information in this story.)
Several older adults collaborating in the Silver Solutions Network programs, have been watching a webinar “Emotional and Mental Health in Older Adults” put on by University of Colorado Anschutz Multidisciplinary Center on Aging.
As a result, participants of that webinar were invited to participate in a program (COAST-IT) “Connecting older adults to students through Inter-Professional Telecare.”
Five Chelsea older adults have been communicating with health professional students in pharmacy, nursing, and dentistry bi-monthly.
The purpose of the program (Called COAST-IT) is to improve their communication skills of the health professional students and better serve older adult patients. Two of the participating Chelsea seniors have been invited to be panel members on a program sponsored by Colorado University, April 29.
