Linked Senior at the Pioneer Network – Aug 8-11 2010

Posted on August 2, 2010

Linked Senior is proud to participate in the Pioneer Network‘s highly anticipated national conference. It is the nation’s largest and most successful conference of its kind. The three-day conference is a showcase for innovative thought and transformative practices in the long-term care culture change movement — as well as an opportunity to facilitate communication among people interested in propelling this important work.

Pioneer Network hosts the only national conference devoted solely to culture change and features pre-conference intensives, inspirational plenary speakers, 50+ group sessions and special events. Now preparing for its tenth year, the Pioneer Network conference has been attended by more than ten thousand culture change advocates from around the nation, Canada and other parts of the world – many of whom return annually.

The event is taking place on August 8-11 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Here is a little bit more about the Pioneer Network:

Pioneer Network was formed in 1997 by a small group of prominent professionals in long-term care to advocate for person-directed care. This group called for a radical change in the culture of aging so that when our grandparents, parents — and ultimately ourselves — go to a nursing home or other community-based setting it is to thrive, not to decline. This movement, away from institutional provider-driven models to more humane consumer-driven models that embrace flexibility and self-determination, has come to be known as the long-term care culture change movement. Our partners and audience are primarily engaged in some aspect of long-term care including long-term care CEOs and administrators, consumers and family caregivers, doctors and nurses, direct care providers, and others who care about, and care for, the aging.

Pioneer Network is a center for all stakeholders in the field of aging and long term care whose focus is on providing home and community for elders. We believe that the quality of life and living for America’s elders is rooted in a supportive community and cemented by relationships that respect each of us as individuals regardless of age, medical condition or limitations.
