Lifelong Learning

Elder’s Family Learning Initiative

To assist families in coping with the long term care system, Cedar Sinai Park has developed a program of education training classes. The EFLI program is specially designed to help families through challenges and struggles associated with the process of placing their aging relative in long-term care. ELFI assists families in understanding many areas of long-term care, including:

  • The aging process and related health issues
  • Housing options
  • Insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid
  • Family dynamics
  • Legal issues
  • How to work with staff in long term care facilities to facilitate optimum care

The EFLI program offers an innovative approach to working directly with family members, at their own pace and comfort level. EFLI helps to educate and empower family members to become partners with social service and medical staff in providing the best care for their elders.
