Live Winter Gathering: Tuesday, December 1st, from 1pm – 5pm EST

Building on the #ActivitiesStrong Virtual Fall Gathering that focused on the first step of resident engagement, getting to know our residents, this half day event will provide the latest trends in terms of planning programs and experiences in senior living. Gathering the country’s leading resident engagement experts, the #ActivitiesStrong initiative will provide the latest trends, offer exclusive data and best practices to help the industry shape the future of resident engagement as we start thinking of 2021. Sessions will also include the first of its kind data driven analysis of resident engagement using the Resident Engagement Index Score (REIS), an update on the latest compliance measures and implementable strategies to help fight social isolation – and we’ll have a happy hour!

Overall Summit Objectives Include:

  • Understand the state of resident engagement in a COVID-19 world
  • Examine the latest best practices regarding program and experience planning
  • Implement and use the Resident Engagement Index Score (REIS) for any senior living organization
