Senior Partner In-Home Care Director of Partnership Development, Alexandra Larson explains why the topic is an important one for discussion at One Senior Place.

 

“Some chronic diseases can be immediately life-threatening, such as heart attack and stroke. Others can persist over time and can be intensive in terms of management,” said Larson.  “For families with a senior recovering from stroke or coping with Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, diabetes or other chronic conditions, the information presented by our panel could have a great impact on quality of life.”
