Full Description: 

Imogene Higbie Awards Dinner – June 7, 2017

On June 7, RIG will host the Imogene Higbie Awards Dinner to applaud direct-care professionals who have championed culture change in the elder care community. Named for Imogene Higbie who initiated the person-centered elder care movement, the honorees who have each significantly fostered person-centered care will each receive a scholarship.

10th Annual Person-Centered Care Symposium – June 8, 2017

On June 8, RIG will hold its 10th Annual Person-Centered Care Symposium, featuring renowned keynote speakers who have dedicated their careers to culture change in elder care and advancing individualized senior living.

Attendees will explore the current state of culture change in senior living, ways in which to implement the shift in their own community, and leadership approaches necessary to effect quality individualized elder care. Symposium attendees will have the opportunity to earn continuing education units while visiting with local and national exhibitors, and network with other healthcare professionals dedicated to advancing the transition from institutionalized to individualize senior living.

The globally recognized keynote speakers will include:

·         Dr. G. Allen Power, Schlegel Chair for Innovation in Aging and Dementia

·         Steve Shields: CEO, Action Pact

·         Nancy Fox: Chief Innovation Officer, Vivage Senior Living

Tickets for the Awards Dinner are available for $75 per person or $650 for a reserved table of 10. Symposium tickets, available for $115 per person, include breakfast, lunch and registration for keynote presentations and afternoon workshops. For those who wish to attend both events, individual tickets are available at a discounted rate of $160. Groups are encouraged to take advantage of the “buy three-get-one-free” option available when purchasing tickets for either event.
