Age-Friendly Community Resources ECHO

The Age-Friendly Community Resource ECHO was developed for Community Health Workers, Community Health Representatives, Case Managers, Outreach workers and other professionals who work to support older adults who reside at home or in another community-based setting. This ECHO series will focus on age friendly education and resource information for professionals as it specifically relates to older adults, their family and professional caregivers.

Age Friendly Community Resources ECHO Events

Each of our Age-Friendly ECHO sessions will be devoted to case presentations by a community support professional team member, followed by a 40-minute informational presentation delivered by the ECHO Hub Team. We will focus on the 4Ms of age-friendly care: What Matters Most, Medications, Mentation and Mobility.

When implemented together, the 4Ms represent a commitment to focus on the unique needs of older adults. The ECHO Hub Team will also provide community-based resources to improve the care of older adults.
