Presentation by Dr. Teel, Author and Physician known for “The Maine Approach”

Hurley Elder Care Law, member of the National Aging in Place Council- GA Chapter (NAIPC-GA Chapter) was a proud sponsor of an educational event where Dr. Allan “Chip” Teel presented on innovative ways to help seniors age in place using different methods including unique uses of technology.  Dr. Teel wrote the book Alone and Invisible No More and is also the founder of Full Circle America.  This educational event was scheduled as part of “National Aging in Place” week – which was October 15-21.  This is a week that The National Aging in Place Council has designated for seniors and family members to discuss livability options and try to bring these issues to the forefront.

This all day conference took place on Thursday, October 18th at Hammond Glen in Sandy Springs.  There were about 100 social workers, case managers and discharge planners to learn about Dr. Teel’s unique methods.  In addition, Kim Grier presented on The Villages Concept, Barbara Rosenberg presented on NORC and there was also a panel on different technologies for seniors and their families.  It was a great day of learning and trying to think “outside of the box” to help seniors age in place and remain at home for as long as possible.
