The 38th Annual Fall Aging Conference 

The Fringe - New Realities in Caring

All of us work hard to help our loved ones, and those we serve in our community, grow old with grace, purpose, and joy. This year the Fall Aging Conference will focus on some of the challenges on “the fringe”,
not the everyday challenges we have dealt with in the past.  The conference will offer advice, training, and support for those of us who have dedicated our lives to improving the quality and quantity of life for our aging population.

The Conference GOAL i
s to provide individuals working in the field of aging an opportunity for education, resources, support, and connectivity in relation to issues affecting seniors, ultimately improving services and advocacy for seniors in our community.  At this year’ conference we will again have multiple vendor booths
in the lecture ballroom, as well as outside the lecture venue. They will be offering products, services, and information.  You will also hear four inspiring speakers presenting on some of the best ways not only to age, but to do it well. They will be featuring care realities that most of us have not dealt with, those realities on the fringe of who we normally provide services for and for behaviors we, as professionals, need to know about. The conference has been approved for 5.5 continuing education units.  The conference has also been approved for Nursing Home Administrators. Hope to see you at this year’ event!
