Building & Leveraging Community Partnerships in Adult Day in the Age of COVID
Joel Bednoski, Founder and Principal, Harpeth Consultant Advisory Group
Christi Clark, Programming Consultant, Harpeth Consultant Advisory Group

Operators of an Adult Day Service Center know the struggles are real: census, fundraising,
marketing, outreach…and then throw in COVID-19 and you have an additional set of struggles! One thing we often overlook is the value of community partnerships.  Community partnerships and collaborations can help ease the struggle, now more so than ever. Now, let’s be clear we can’t solve all your problems, but what we can do is help you learn the steps on how to identify, build, and leverage community partnerships to increase your visibility and get more engaged with your community stakeholders.
Learning Objectives:
• Learn the steps to identify suitable community partnerships in 3 key areas: higher  education, for-profit senior living and homecare, and local/national associations;
• Learning how to approach a potential community partner and identify a next step; and,
• Learn how to increase your exposure through your community partnerships
