Quick Question: What are your favorite model programs?
posted 12.10.2012

We love to hear about programs that are serving older adults and that work, and we also like to spread the word so that you can learn from them. Last week we asked for your favorite model programs that serve older adults. Here are a few of the comments we received:

I love assisted living. It gives seniors their own apartment but the necessary services to stay independent and activities that keep them active spiritually, mentally, and physically.

Home and community services programs that allow my residents to age in place in their own homes.

Several people listed their favorite organzations serving older adults including The OASIS Institute and Meals on Wheels. If you were at the 2012 Aging in America Conference you may remember Endid Borden, the then-CEO of Meals on Wheels, speaking at a general session. Her passion and dedication to older adults came through as she asked listeners to take a stand against senior hunger. This year at the 2013 Aging in America Conference we will bring together more national and community leaders who are not only committed to their programs and organizations but also to sharing what they've learned.
