  • Rising Trends in Senior Housing
  • Merging Organizations
  • Strategic Planning
  • Serving the Middle Market
  • For-Profit Competition
  • Delivering Resident-Centered Care

Video: Scenes From the LeadingAge Gathering in Boston

Few cities can match Boston as an appropriate venue for the LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo. Boston is a place of new ideas and learning — a place where people challenge themselves.

And at the 2015 Annual Meeting, there were new ideas shared by industry leaders, mutual learning among peers, and senior living professionals challenging themselves to find innovative ways to approach non-profit missions.

At Greystone, we were honored to take part in this gathering. In hopes of continuing the dialogue started in Boston, we announced an upcoming series of white papers titled, “The CCRC Evolution.”

You can sign up to receive copies of these white papers, and you can see scenes from the 2015 LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo using the video player below.
