The problem will not go away any time soon with the population of adults age 65 and older increasing from 47.8 million in 2015 to 88 million in 2050 and where it is estimated that 70% of people who reach the age of 65 will ultimately need some form of longterm services and supports. The Governor’s office and legislators are asking for innovative ideas to address this crisis, so the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations (SDAHO) is working with our members and the community to educate, engage and promote innovation at the annual post-acute care conference. The Conference will be held at the Ramkota Hotel in Sioux Falls on April 24-25, 2019. Tammy Hatting, Vice President of PostAcute Care and Education for SDAHO states “it is a priority for our association to support the needs of our members while working as a liaison with state and federal authorities to better serve the residents in South Dakota as they age. Our annual conference is a great way to bring everyone together to identify ways to move the post-acute care industry forward”. This year’s conference will focus on innovation as the opening keynote speaker shares the latest in healthcare consumer technology. Other innovation sessions include an introduction into the possibilities of remote patient monitoring and how an innovative digital device is already being used in an assisted living care setting. Attendees will also be introduced to the science of pharmacogenet- ics and how personalized medicine can be effective in post-acute care. To help address the workforce challenge, SDAHO will be hosting a special session for high school students where they will have an interactive dialogue with a variety of disciplines in the postacute space to learn more about the benefits and rewards of working with the elderly. The session will serve as an overview of careers in nursing homes, home health, hospice and assisted living facilities as well as an opportunity for workforce recruitment. Lastly, the conference will close with a keynote session by Author and former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber who shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer's disease. Gov. Schreiber candidly describes his challenges and mis-steps and highlights how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer's mountain. Schreiber’s acclaimed book is My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver. The SDAHO Post-Acute Care Conference is open to both members and nonmembers and will be held at the Ramkota Hotel in Sioux Falls on April 24, starting at 11:30am and closing on April 25th at 12:30pm.
