ALCA Annual Conference

Pre-Conference Intensives

Separate Registration/Fee required - Not included in the full conference registration.

Aging Life Care™ Essentials - Clinical & Ethical

This intensive explores ALCA’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, while discussing the clinical issues that frequently arise in Aging Life Care practices. This is an interactive session using 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!

Suggested Audience: New Aging Life Care Managers and those wishing to enhance clinical skills.

Aging Life Care™ Essentials - Sales & Marketing

This intensive will further expand your abilities to reach out to other professionals who can refer business, creating a win-win situation for both parties. Enhancing your outreach skills will result in more satisfaction as well as more clients.

  • How do you position your business as the service of choice?
  • How can you leverage your expertise to underscore your value proposition?
  • How can you better understand your ever-changing targeted market?
  • While you have the training, experience, education, and knowledge to provide high-level, quality professional service, how do you ensure that a steady stream of clients will come in your door

As an Aging Life Care Professional, one assumes many roles in a successful practice, and the “rain-making” role often poses a unique challenge for the professional. In this interactive intensive, we will outline a process by which attendees will enhance skills to grow one’s business.

Suggested Audience: New Aging Life Care Managers and those wishing to enhance business development skills.
