Join us for a discussion on some Hot Topics, including the importance of a person-centered approach to care; how now may be the perfect time for senior living communities to reevaluate their outdoor space for residents; how rethinking a community’s indoor space may help to increase social engagement for residents; and how revisiting current policies related to continence care may lead to better outcomes and costs savings. Three strategies will be explored in hopes that through education and understanding, together we can change lives.

Penny Cook

Penny Cook, MSW, Pioneer Network President/CEO: Penny’s commitment to changing the culture of aging and long-term care began early in her professional career as a social worker in Rochester, New York and continued as she moved to Colorado. She strongly believes that the care we provide to elders is directly related to the way we, as a society, view aging. She is passionate about spreading the message that we are in the midst of a revolution about how we age and where we do it. Penny comments that, “no matter whether people live, in nursing homes, assisted living communities or in their family home, we all deserve and should expect respectful and dignified care and support that is centered, directed and tailored to us as individuals.”
