The research is clear: successful aging is much more about lifestyle and environment than DNA and where you live matters enormously. Retirement communities have an opportunity to help residents make the most of their current chapter in life. To do so is a boon to the quality of life of residents plus it will likely boost occupancy and employee retention. Ryan Frederick will share the key insights from his new consumer book, Right Place, Right Time, and the key implications for senior living leaders.

Participants who join this webinar will be able to:

  • Understand how the role of lifestyle decisions, most notably cultivating a sense of daily purpose and social connection, is critical for healthy aging at any age and stage
  • See how certain resident engagement techniques can enable greater purpose and social connection
  • Be able to better articulate the value proposition of senior living to current and prospective residents and their families
