Momentum for Positive Aging
I just returned from the Masterpiece Living Lyceum in Atlanta, GA, and am happy to report that I think the movement toward positive, healthy aging is rapidly gaining speed and will soon reach the tipping point. I spoke on the Power of Possibilities encouraging attendees to look at every policy and procedure in senior living to see if it supports or detracts from resilience and feelings of competence, value, and purpose. Dr. Bill Thomas, founder of the Eden Alternative driving culture change in nursing homes, and Changing Aging a platform to challenge conventional views on aging, spoke about feeling a shift – more voices, more action, more change – moving us toward that place in time where we no longer feel like lone voices in the crowd but a chorus insisting on positive change. It was a very energizing and encouraging meeting!
