According to AARP, 9 out of 10 older adults prefer to stay in their own homes as they age—even if they need some assistance or are managing ongoing health issues. But finding the best resources to help your aging parents and knowing how to navigate the options can be confusing and stressful. During this panel discussion, our experts will offer insights into home care and other new and traditional services for older adults who want to stay independent, living at home.

Designed for people over 65 and adult children who are helping to plan for a parent’s care, our panel will cover a range of key topics and current options to support wellness, safety, and quality of life at home. Eldercare Specialists Founder & President Lynn Goehner will talk about family dynamics and how to initiate conversations about the need for care with your parents and siblings. Alice Lai-Bitker, owner of Alice Home Care, will share tips on how to select the best home care agency and find the right caregiver. Danielle Ishak, a user experience researcher at Intuition Robotics, will introduce Ellie.Q, an AI-driven social robot designed to encourage engagement and reduce isolation among older adults. And Golden Founder Evin Ollinger will discuss financial considerations and planning for long-term care.

Moderated by Cameron Tuttle and Randy Allen, co-hosts of Honor’s “Who Cares?” podcast, this is a must-attend discussion for anyone in the Bay Area who wants to be better informed and prepared to support safe, independent living for their loved ones.
