In Forward Motion

To move forward doesn't mean to push past where we have been. On the contrary, to truly move our organizations forward, we must leverage where we have been to become stronger and smarter. In Forward Motion is a keynote presentation by LeadingAge national board chair, Carol Silver Elliott, focused on building on the lessons from the COVID era to help inform change and progress for elder care providers. This session will not only motivate, but also provide ideas to implement. In Forward Motion is for anyone who works in the field of elder care. 

  • Identify lessons learned from COVID.
  • Explain more about resilience and the choices of resilience.
  • Recognize the issues of ageism and how they were impacted by COVID.
