The Message Behind Our Conference Theme
Our conference committee chose the theme “Blossom with WRC-ALCA – Revitalize and Restore” to set the tone for the conference and to provide prospective speakers with guidance on how to shape their proposals. Coming off of 2+ years of change, stress and isolation, we wanted to focus on a serene, caring and calm event to bring us back to “why” we do this.
Blossom – We are continuously innovating new strategies, tools and solutions on demand that will connect our clients with relevant navigation and resources. We blossom when we share, embrace, and innovate. New growth comes from water, sunlight, and care. Let’s grow together!
Revitalize – Conferences are all about learning. We want to hear from you about approaches and best practices for caring for older adults and helping them age in a healthy way! After a long stretch of stress and neglect we hope to get back to our core values and revitalize our businesses and our customers.
Restore– We want to hear the generational voices on services, technology, strategies for juggling family, work and caregiving, and care options for our clients who want to do things on their own terms and live as independently as possible. At the same time, we need to acknowledge the impact our continually increasing client loads have on us and do what we need to do to take care of ourselves while giving others the tools they need. It’s time to restore our commitment to this work, our clients and each other. Let’s restore some of what we have lost in the last 2+ years.
