This March our Chief Advocacy Officer, Fritzi Gros-Daillon, MS, CAPS, CSA will be speaking at the Aging in America Conference in our nations capital.
From March 20–24, 2016, nearly 3,000 professionals will meet in Washington, D.C. to engage with each other on a multitude of issues affecting our older adult population. Every year they meet as a community at the Aging in America Conference to share ideas and knowledge, learn from the experts, gain new perspectives and get reinvigorated to do their best work.
Over 3,000 attendees from across the nation and abroad attend the conference to learn, network and participate in the largest multidisciplinary conference covering issues of aging and quality of life for older adults.
Ms. Gros-Daillon is looking forward to speaking on Sacred Promise/Sacred Space on Monday, March 21st. The presentation addresses the promises made within families and the effects once significant events (physical, cognitive) have transpired which make the promises impossible to keep. She will also discuss the extraordinary relevance of our home, its creation and the transitions to other spaces later in life.
Fritzi will also be conducting a roundtable discussion with practical approaches to home safety and home modification. The discussion will focus on the maintenance of independence and dignity as our physical abilities change.
Eager to attend the Boomer Business Summit and participate in the valuable information sessions on the longevity economy and technology advances, Ms. Gros-Daillon will be sharing her insights through the Age Safe America website and blogs.
