"Be the Future"

JULY 30 – AUGUST 2, 2017
HYATT REGENCY O’HARE • ROSEMONT, ILLINOIS

Pioneer Network hosts an annual conference to showcase innovative thought and best practices in the long-term care culture change movement — as well as providing an opportunity for people interested in many aspects of culture change to network and inspire each other. Past conferences have been attended by more than a thousand people from across the United States and other nations who care deeply about changing the culture of aging. As always, we strive to make this event meaningful for people who are just starting on the culture change journey to build a sense of home and community for our elders — as well as those who have been actively engaged in this mission for some time.

Registration for our annual conference is now open.

In our closing plenary, Person Directed Care — Explore the Future: Becoming Elders, Ashton and other Pioneers will share wisdom, explore the realities we face today and the vision we see for the future — and challenge each of us to be the future as we go forward to create the vision for the next 20 years.


The conference will showcase innovative thought and best practices in the long-term care culture change movement — as well as providing an opportunity for people interested in many aspects of culture change to network and inspire each other through poster sessions and networking. Past conferences have been attended by more than a thousand people from across the United States and other nations who care deeply about changing the culture of aging. As always, we strive to make this event meaningful for people who are just starting on the culture change journey to build a sense of home and community for our elders — as well as those who have been actively engaged in this mission for some time. So, don’t miss the opportunity to Be A Part of It, to share your stories of how Person Directed Care is happening, and together we will shape and be the Future!


Be sure to mark your calendars for July 30 – August 2, 2017, and plan to make the 2017 Pioneer Network Conference a stop on your culture change journey!
