A Life ON PURPOSE
The aging services field is re-writing the rules of aging. We are leveraging new technologies,    forming new partnerships and taking a fresh look at everything we do.
 
Our field is no longer just about bricks and mortar or programs and services. It’s about helping older adults on the journey of living, a life with intention. And the real purpose of anyone’s life is to be fully involved in living, to embrace the adventure and to live well at every age.
 
Join us as we celebrate this evolution of changing the face of aging and living a life on purpose!  
Plenary Session featuring Dr. Gregg Steinberg
Achieving the Purpose-Driven Life
Research shows that purpose is the light we all seek.  Purpose is the key to a successful life and is the master emotion. Purpose is an emotion that fills you up with grit, determination, passion and everything you need in life to be successful and happy.  Purpose gives you the highest level of emotional toughness. As the keynote presenter, Dr. Gregg Steinberg will show you how to make purpose a verb—how to add purpose every day in your life and in your work and how when you make purpose the center of your life, you will thrive in everything that you do.

  Create Greater Health & Well-Being with Mindfulness
  We all have multiple commitments within the work/life balance and sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the demands of everyday life.   While many of us enjoy all of the activity, sometimes it can become stressful. Studies have shown that while we cannot eliminate stress from our lives completely, there are certain techniques we can practice to reduce stress,   become more resilient and increase our overall health, happiness and job performance.  Join us to learn what mindfulness is and how it will help you create greater health and well-being.  Ms. Jones will tell us about her personal journey and share why mindfulness is so important. You will be guided through a short meditation and leave with simple ways you can practice mindfulness at work and in life.
