Collaboration in Aging

With over 350 industry leaders, the (un)Conference will center its attention on innovative and actionable approaches to ‘Redefine the Human Experience in Aging'.

DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / September 20, 2023 / The second annual Collaboration in Aging (un)Conference, with the theme 'Redefining the Human Experience in Aging Care,' is poised to unite over 350 national entrepreneurs, innovators, influencers, and senior care industry leaders in Denver, Colorado next week. This diverse assembly represents Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Independent Living communities, along with administrators, caregivers, and placement agents, all with a shared dedication to addressing long-standing gaps within the senior care ecosystem.

The conference is founded by three prominent organizations-Mavericks of Senior Living, the Colorado Placement and Referral Alliance (CoPRA), and the Colorado Assisted Living Association (CALA) - in collaboration with Catalyst for Change and the passionate advocate Cambria Jacobs. National Collaboration in Aging has been experiencing significant growth, with a remarkable +146% increase in sponsorships and attendance since its inaugural conference.

"The Collaboration in Aging Conference confronts the complex and outdated technologies and processes that define today's aging experience," said Francis LeGasse, President and CEO of Assured Assisted Living. "Through fostering partnerships and igniting authentic dialogues, this event is charting a path towards a more transparent, efficient, informed, and enriched journey for our seniors and their caregivers."

Alongside the event's three distinguished keynote speakers, Collaboration in Aging will consist of over 40 panelists and 60 breakout sessions made up of esteemed industry veterans and pioneering entrepreneurs sharing their insights on disruptive technology and new innovations to enhance the way care is delivered to older adults.

Breaking away from convention, (un)Conference 2023 will delve into often-overlooked critical topics, including LGBTQ+ inclusivity, the latest Alzheimer's research and approved medications, technology's role in senior care, and strategic workforce pipeline development through student initiatives. Departing from the traditional exhibit hall, sponsors will find their place in "The Village," an innovative layout reflecting the nonlinear nature of the senior care journey.

"The ongoing digital and generational transformation, coupled with evolving demographics, technology advancements, and changing family dynamics, necessitates a fresh perspective," remarks Katherine Wells, Managing Partner at Collaboration in Aging and CEO of Serenity. "Collaboration in Aging is uniquely positioned to offer not only new insights and renewed optimism but also practical steps to reshape the future of aging care."
