Over 60 experts in the field of Senior Living, Rehab, Corporate Wellness, and Government gather in Washington to address the crucial challenge of how digital technology will impact quality of life for older Americans, while changing environments, services, staffing needs and outcomes for the active-aging industry.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 04, 2016
Respected thought leaders within the active aging industry will attend the 11th International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) Forum, in Washington, DC. The biannual forum brings together thought leaders from Senior Living, Rehab, Corporate Wellness, and Government, along with technology organizations, to discuss pressing issues facing the ever-evolving “active aging” industry.
Launched more than 10 years ago, the meetings forge connections among industry leaders while promoting understanding and cohesive action around the ultimate goal: health and quality of life as people age. The forum is also dedicated to forming a think tank to develop strategies that will turn the challenges facing senior living providers into opportunities.
“Active aging means living your life to its fullest – no matter your age. As an organization whose mission is to make this goal achievable for all adults over age 50 worldwide, ICAA considers it an important opportunity to have the top minds in the industry together in one room, “ said Colin Milner, CEO of ICAA. “We use these sessions to set our priorities and problem solve on behalf of the industry to achieve our goals of changing the way we age for the better.”
This session will focus on the future of technology for active aging, and explores how technology will impact wellness environments and services, staff and customer expectations, engagement, and outcomes.
