Omaha – The sixth-biennial Aging with Passion and Purpose conference will be held on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. This year's theme is Next Generation Services.
An estimated 10,000 people are turning 65 every day; a trend that is expected to continue until 2030. This realization is forcing a revolution in terms of how we care for our aging adults. A new mix of family and community involvement, home-centered care, economic and social policies, and service delivery systems are creating more opportunities for older Americans to enhance their health status and social and economic well-being.
The Aging with Passion & Purpose: Next Generation Services conference will explore new ways of caring for an aging population, presenting information on successful aging, whole person health care, All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, palliative care, and comprehensive geriatric assessment.
