As part of IFIC's Integrated Care Matters webinar series, this webinar will explore care closer to home for older people with frailty.

Integrated care for older people with frailty has a growing evidence base. Many countries are adopting new models of specialist multidisciplinary assessment, care and support in the community to improve continuity and coordination of care and enable older people to maintain their functional ability and independence for as long as possible. Community services range from acute treatment and rehabilitation as Hospital at Home or intermediate care services to proactive interventions, including support for people living with dementia and their family carers, to help people stay well at home for longer.

Hosted by the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC), this webinar will highlight three services, all making a unique contribution to care closer to home: a Hospital at Home team from Florence, Italy; a Dementia Intervention Team from Malta;  and discharge, transitional care and intermediate care services in Fife, Scotland.

The session will be hosted by Professor Anne Hendry, Senior Associate at International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC) and Director of IFIC Scotland.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Giulia Rivasi, Division of Geriatric and Intensive Care Medicine at Florence University Hospital “Careggi”
  • Mr Alex Gobey, Director of the Dementia Care Directorate
    Active Ageing and Community Care, Malta
  • Lyndsey Dunn, Service Manager, Intermediate Care, Fife Health and Social Care Partnership Deputy Chair Nurse & AHP Council, British Geriatrics Society
