WHY THE FOCUS ON AGEISM?

Ageism is everywhere and it...

  • inhibits quality staff recruitment and retention.
  • clouds the public's view of the senior living industry.
  • negatively influences philanthropy.
  • leads to onerous public policy.

LeadingAge is calling on members & other aging services professionals to challenge ageism. So, join us in Dallas to see how one LeadingAge Texas member is working to challenge ageism early on & learn how you can run with the concept to positively affect your own community's staff & residents.
