Impact and Inspire for Quality Care

Assisted living and senior living is the most favored and fastest growing long-term care option for seniors in the United States. These communities help residents continue to maintain a high quality of life within their level of comfort.

The Assisted & Senior Living Facilities Summit brings together executive leaders in charge of assisted living, senior living and long-term care facilities. The program is an opportunity for executive directors and vice presidents of facilities, capital planning, design and construction to discuss emerging innovations and challenges in the field.

The Assisted & Senior Living Facilities Summit is here to provide meaningful and impactful content that will help provide insight on what is next in quality care. Unlike other industry events, this conference is smaller in nature and allows you the real opportunity to build solid relationships and partnerships. The all-inclusive summit provides an intimate setting and creates a highly effective channel for true collaboration.
