Presentation: Phil Bongiorno will be speaking to us on "The Value of Home Care: Caring for Our Seniors, Serving Family Caregivers and Saving Health Care Costs." 

Preamble

While there is no silver bullet to the challenges that accompany population aging, in-home personal care is emerging as a valuable and vital part of the solution. It provides seniors with a choice about how and where they age and delivers peace of mind to family members. Home care helps Americans age with dignity and independence while remaining active, engaged members of their communities. This option fits in perfectly with the desire of many American seniors, who overwhelmingly want to age in place and remain in their homes as long as possible. 

Improving Health Outcomes for Seniors and Lowering Health Care Costs

Home care can improve the physical and mental well-being of care recipients. In addition to helping prevent falls, keeping seniors on track with their medications, providing nutritious meals and helping maintain personal hygiene, caregivers can also provide doctors with valuable information that may help to improve diagnosis and treatment of seniors. Home care allows seniors recover after hospital stays and has shown to reduce hospital readmissions. Moreover, home care helps bend the health care cost curve.  According to recent studies, seniors using in-home care reported 25 percent fewer doctor visits each year, while seniors with Alzheimer’s disease needed fewer hospital visits. Another study showed annual hospital cost savings of as much as $25 billion due to the growth of home care services over the previous decade. The result: better health outcomes for seniors and lower overall health care costs.

Home Care Benefits Family Caregivers

More than 34 million Americans serve as family caregivers for someone age 50 and over. On average, family caregivers spend 24 hours per week providing care. The impact of caregiving responsibilities on families is profound. Most family caregivers faced with these challenges, often find it challenging to sustain a high level of care. As a result, their loved one may not receive the care they need. Senior home care services reduce stress and mental health burdens on family members and also lead to positive results concerning their productivity in their workplaces.

Bio - Phil Bongiorno

With more than 20 years of extensive health care and public health policy background, Phil has represented numerous non-profit associations focused on health care and disability issues over the years. He began his role in January 2014 as Executive Director for Home Care Association of America (HCAOA), a trade association representing nearly 3,000 home care service providers across the United States. A self-described servant leader, Phil is responsible for the Association’s overall operations, including strategic planning, financial management, membership development, education, advocacy and public affairs. Previously, he served as the Director of Government Relations for The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.  In his spare time, Phil is a marathon runner and has completed the Marine Corps Marathon 16 times. He is married to his wife Lisa of 21 years and has two children, Alexandra 18, a freshman at Virginia Tech and Phillip, 15, a sophomore in high school.

Guest Presentation

In addition to a time of festivities and networking, we will be having a guest presentation by Angela Inzerillo of Impact Business Solutions, LLC. She will be educating us on “Getting Quality Leads from your Circle of Influence.”

One of the best and most leveraged ways to generate leads is by using your Circle of influence (COI), that is, people with whom we interact on a regular basis. Because people are more likely to do business with the people they know and trust or with people recommended by a friend or family member, these relationships are vital to our success.

During this presentation, you will learn how to turn the top people within your COI into quality referrals ‐ EVERY time! We will also help you create your "Ideal Client" profile, and explain why this is critical. Learn to improve your referral rate based on "quality" not "quantity." You will get to try your new skills almost immediately!

About Angela Inzerillo:

Angela is the Co-Founder of Impact Business Solutions LLC, a sales and marketing training and consulting firm based in Northern Virginia.  Focused on lead generation and conversion, her company gives small business owners the strategy, system and support they need to get results fast.
