Please join us for a lively presentation and networking reception as we launch the new Healthy Generations Hartford Center of Excellence in Geriatric Social Work at the University of Washington
Featuring: Wendy Lustbader -nationally-renowned speaker and author
Changing the Culture of Aging in America
A person-centered care movement is taking hold in the realm of health care and long term care, but what about the wider culture? The values of seeing each elder as an individual, referring to the person rather than the task or the diagnosis, respecting dignity and protecting autonomy, considering the spirit as well as the mind and body, celebrating the resilience and diversity of elders across communities and cultures– these ideas ought to be integral in the way life itself is conducted in our society, for young and old alike.
Experience intergenerational dialogue and the convergence of diverse hopes and ideas for an age friendly culture.
