This teaching strategy from the National League of Nursing's Advancing Care Excellence for Caregivers series uses a case study approach to engage students to think through a complex situation involving an older adult who is starting to decline and a concerned family member who is becoming a caregiver. The use of technology to assist the aging adult to live safely at home, commonly referred to as aging in place, is emphasized. Learning objectives, learner pre-work, and suggested learning activities and readings are included. Files are downloadable/printable.
