Takin’ it to the Streets: A 25,000 Mile Journey of Inspirations
Jack York, Co-founder of It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L)

This presentation will walk attendees through a 25,000-mile journey throughout the world of senior living, including Adult Day sites. What started as a simple journey of gratitude evolved into a life changing series of conversations and interactions with the people and staff living in communities every day. Stories of hope, of determination, of faith, of inspiration, of romance, of possibilities, of exuberance, of loss told every day by the greatest generation and workers who love to serve those same people. The perspectives learned from the visits that crossed over 30 states and over 100 communities provide lessons of delivering care, of improving relationships, and frankly, of transforming how we view aging.
Learning Objectives:
• Has your perspective of aging changed, of what people are capable of, particularly individuals living with dementia?
• Learn lessons and tips that will allow your participants to feel more connected and engaged in your community.
• Be inspired to increase meaningful interactions at your Adult Day sites between management and participants.
