CEOs, presidents and board members from non-profit senior living providers will gather for the 10th Annual Ziegler Greystone Executive Symposium this Feb. 20-22 in Litchfield Park, Ariz. Each year, this event serves as a venue for these senior living executives to learn, network and share experiences in a relaxed setting. Sessions will address the following questions:
- Does your business mix match evolving customer preferences?
- Are you prepared for the coming age wave?
- Is your board prepared for the challenges and aware of the opportunities to come?
- Can you fund necessary growth and change?
- Have you identified the resources necessary for long-term success?
This year’s Symposium will also focus on realigning business models, adapting current physical assets, serving new geographic markets and offering new service lines. Listen to 2012 attendees discuss why they attended the Symposium.
Work on Redstone Village’s Phase IV expansion is entering its final stages. This expansion includes 36 independent living units, commons areas and an aquatics and fitness center. Crews are adding customized fixtures and completing interior design work. The addition’s first residents began moving in this month.
Growth will continue at Redstone Village, as the community also broke ground this month on its fifth phase. This addition will add 16 new nursing beds and space for therapy services.

The November issue of The Overlook, a newsletter published by residents of The Amsterdam at Harborside, shares how the community’s staff and residents worked together to ride out Hurricane Sandy, which ravaged New York, New Jersey and other parts of the East Coast in October. The Amsterdam is located in Port Washington, N.Y.
During the storm, The Amsterdam never lost power or heat. Extra food had been stocked before the storm made landfall, and staff members committed to remain in the building to better serve residents. Here’s an excerpt that describes what happened next, as shared on The Overlook’s front page:
“As one day passed to another, and scenes of destruction and stories of loss of power multiplied, family members and friends of Amsterdam residents began visiting and staying. Young children, shut out of closed schools, were everywhere. Our CCRC became Cold Children’s Recreation Center. The Amsterdam served as a haven for some 120 visitors who bedded down in the comfort of family and friends here. There were numerous ‘displaced’ being fed on the serving lines, staffed by administrators from every department, including The Tuttle Center, some for two weeks.”
