Senior Agenda Coalition Annual Conference
October 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Senior Agenda Conference is Here!
We’re back! After a one-year hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, we’re inviting you to join us for our 13th Annual Senior Conference and Expo on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick. Our conference slogan is “Aging Better, Back Together,” and the event will be held in person. All participants will be required to provide proof of COVID vaccination and to wear masks.
Our theme will be Who Will Care for the Baby Boomers? Those born between 1946 and 1964 comprise a demographic “age wave” that could overwhelm our long-term care system, while Rhode Island’s nursing homes and home care agencies have for some time experienced a trend of high staff turnover rates amidst a growing demand for their services. COVID’s effects have now created a “perfect storm” of a workforce crisis that demands action.
Keynoter Senator Maryellen Goodwin has led passage of legislation aiding seniors, and she will be followed by a Forum with House Speaker K. Joseph Shekarchi and Senate President Dominick Ruggerio. We will close with a panel discussion about building a better-paid and valued senior care workforce.
An Expo of exhibitors from a wide range of senior programs will showcase their programs and services.
Join us to reunite with old friends and make new ones while we plan for an increased quality of life for older adults in Rhode Island.
We are grateful to our
