Allison Boulware – Bridging the Generational Gap in Senior Living

The generation gap is real. And it poses challenges for leaders in the workplace, especially when working with different age groups of employees who have very different perspectives on how to approach their careers and responsibilities at work. This is particularly true for senior living communities. Bridging the generational gap in senior living is necessary for society to thrive. Often, generations feel segregated by age and miss out on precious opportunities that come with being connected across different eras of life experiences. We need connections between our elders as well as young adults because they are both integral parts who contribute greatly towards shaping America into what it will be tomorrow. We believe in the power of relationships, and we know that when people from different generations come together, they can create something truly special.

Stephanie Zeverino – Debunk the Myth of Senior Living

Most of us have our own ideas about what senior living communities are like. Some believe that senior living community is interchangeable with the term nursing home but they are in fact two very different options for seniors. While many leading senior living communities do provide higher-level healthcare services and assistance found in traditional nursing homes, they offer seniors so much more than simply age-related support. The truth is that many people choose to live in an independent lifestyle setting because they want more out of life. Independent senior living offers more freedom and independence while still providing access to on-site health care providers as needed. Senior Living communities today focus greatly on helping seniors maintain their quality of life by offering amenities such as fitness centers, pools, spas, dining options and so much more! These benefits allow seniors to enjoy active lifestyles without having to worry about household chores or maintenance issues at home – giving them the ability to spend time doing things they love Join me in conversation today is Stephanie Zeverino.——————– Bio: Stephanie Zeverino – As Director of Business Development for their newest location, Stephanie has had to become well-versed in every aspect of senior living marketing. From independent living to assisted care to Memory Care and Circle of Friends program for MCI residents, she’s done it all! Find Stephanie on LinkedIn:

As our population ages, it’s more important than ever to consider the impact of active aging, brain health, senior living, and affordable housing on the aging population.

Brain health is essential for maintaining cognitive function and deferring and maybe preventing dementia.
