Aging Life Care™ Essentials - Section 1 (formerly Care Management 101)

This session will explore ALCA’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, while discussing the clinical issues that frequently arise in Aging Life Care practices. The 8 core knowledge areas essential for practice will also be reviewed. This will be an interactive session that uses actual case histories to explore clinical approaches to meeting client needs and resolving common ethical challenges that arise within this process. Aging Life Care is not just a business -- it is shaping the lives of people for generations to come!

Aging Life Care™ Essentials - Section 2 (formerly Care Management 101)

In this interactive four hour pre-conference intensive, we will be outlining a process by which attendees will be able to enhance skills to grow one’s business. This session will further expand your abilities to reach out to other professionals who can refer business and to establish your position as their “trusted advisor”, creating a win-win situation for both parties. Enhancing your skills at outreach will result in more satisfaction as well as more clients.

***Attendees may register for both sections of Aging Life Care™ Essentials***

Growing Strategies for Established Practices (formerly Care Management 201)

This interactive pre-conference intensive seeks to answer the questions most often asked by ALCA business owners/managers who want to grow their business beyond a sole, one, or two employee company. A practical approach to developing a strategic plan aimed at helping you grow your business is presented. Teaching methodology includes Q & A, lecture, and small group participation. This workshop is fast paced and intended for those willing to roll up their sleeves to better understand the working basics of their business. The goal of this workshop is for you to leave the seminar with a beginning draft of a strategic plan aimed at identifying the very next steps in growing your business.
