Educational Session: Senior Living Change and Growth – Future Ready!

Session Date & Time: Tuesday, May 24th, 4:15-5:15pm (ET)

Session Description:

Due to demographics and the eminent change our consumer demand as well as the increased challenges in dealing with Skilled Nursing and the shrinking work force – life plan communities must change and adapt to be successful and ‘future-ready.’

Presenters will discuss ways providers are changing to adapt to future needs. Hear from an architect, a marketing expert and a banker about examples on models of senior living that are already starting to challenge traditional communities. They will explore how communities can do more with less by offering service flexibility and focusing on qualitative vs. quantitative experience. Two Providers who are/have undergone significant change are Clark Retirement Communities, who merged into a larger NFP Senior Living System, while growing on their own campus, and Resthaven, who is in the process of building/opening two new campuses. Hear from the Providers how their changes adapt to their organization’s perceived needs for the future.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Discover how demographic projections and major economic disruptors like the pandemic, labor shortages and soaring home prices will impact senior living communities and their consumers for years to come, including how LPCs are doing more with less.
  2. Existing / traditional Life Plan Communities can transform themselves to meet new or changing markets while staying true to their mission.
  3. Learn from two real case studies, how Western Michigan providers have embraced change and growth to best prepare their organizations for the future. Understand their thought-process and their stake-holder’s (residents, staff, board’s) reaction to their bold changes.

Featured Speakers:

  • Lynn Daly, Executive Vice President, HJ Sims
  • Brian Pangle, CEO, Clark Retirement Communities
  • Deedre Vriesman, CEO, Resthaven
  • Hoppy Sell, Tandem
  • Margaret Yu, RLPS

Educational Session: The Power of Innovative Senior Services Boards

Session Date & Time: Monday, May 16, 4:15-5:15 pm (PDT).

Session Description: Not-for-profit senior living management teams expect their boards to be forward-thinking, strategic, and innovative – enabling these same attributes within the organizations they serve. Innovation at the board level is a function of various elements – including when there is a defined strategic direction and best practices in place. What are the roles of the board? What does an effective board look like? What are some tools boards can use to remain focused on their organizations’ mission? How should boards respond when facing unexpected changes? Related to strategy, specifically: Is strategic thinking a strategy? Does the board or management create the strategic plan? Join us with board and executive management representatives of one or more senior services providers, for an informative discussion that will explore elements of an innovative board.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify common issues experienced by not-for-profit senior services boards and best approaches to avoidance/correction and solutions
  2. Understand the responsibilities of board members and their role in determining the strategic direction of the organization
  3. Gain tools for adjusting to change and spearheading innovation following the organization’s vision and mission
  4. Develop solutions around board “tension areas”
