How The Ritz-Carlton Delivers Extraordinary Service
Lunch with Opening Keynote Speaker
Sponsored by Yardi
Our residents live with us 24/7, 365 days a year. No other industry category can make that claim. How do you lead your team to ensure you deliver extraordinary resident experiences with each and every touchpoint?

Hear from The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center about how their iconic brand has operationalized a culture of service excellence. Gain thought-provoking insights that will set the table for the key theme of this year’s Senior Living Symposium: delivering operational excellence while preparing for what’s next in senior living.

1:30-2:30 PM
Ask Me Anything: Candid Talk with Residents and Families
What do residents and families know that there’s not the time or place to tell us? This session opens up communication in an enjoyable and compassionate way.

Join in this “ask me anything” discussion with local residents and adult children in a curated storytelling panel format. You’ll leave informed and inspired to achieve the exceptional resident experience.

2:30-3:30 PM
Maximizing Success through a Diverse Workforce
There is no success without diversity. We must keep high performers moving forward. We must engage employees from multiple generations, races, genders and ethnicities. And we must work at the community level to hire for the right skills to assure the best care possible.  Indeed, McKinsey data shows gender and ethnic diversity clearly correlates with improved profitability and lower turnover.

But what’s measured is managed. Here’s an opportunity to find out how, from leaders outside of the senior living sector who have quantified the advantages of workforce diversity, and benefit from their lessons learned.

3:45-4:30 PM
Beyond the Pilot: New Technologies that Work
Virtual reality, artificial intelligence, predictive analytics...what are senior living owner/operators doing now to maximize technologies for better care, higher resident engagement, or cost savings? As senior living prepares for the next generation of residents as well as workforce, these new technologies will become more commonplace -- and expected in -- your communities.

Hear from owner/operators that have evolved their “pilot projects” into new technology roll-outs achieving positive results.

5:30-7 PM
Senior Living Symposium Networking Reception

6-9:30 PM

9-10 AM
Integrating New Service Lines
According to the International Council on Active Aging, “wellness” has already replaced “care” as a driving concept for community operations in senior living. At the same time, changes in Medicare Advantage and higher acuity rates have sparked an increase in delivery and management of primary care within senior living communities.

If you’re interested in integrating new service lines within your operation, these case studies from two programs that made it work successfully will provide you with a roadmap.

10-11 AM
The Multi-Brand Strategy for Growth
Retail, hospitality, automotive, and consumer packaged goods have expanded their market shares by developing multi-brand strategies: brands with different price points, features and benefits, designed to appeal to varied customer bases, yet leverage the power of common leadership.

Can senior living grow through this approach? The answer looks to be yes--but with some caveats.  Executives leading these brand roll-outs share their results and market differentiation strategies.

11:15 AM-12 PM
Visioning NextGen Senior Living
Sponsored by Fox Rehab
Closing keynote. Boxed lunches will be provided.

Speaker: Neil Howe, Author, Historian, and Economist

Are you prepared for the seismic shifts that will force changes to the senior living business model over the next 10 to 15 years? What will your workforce look like? How will new technologies impact the services your residents receive? What effect will the “wellness generation” have on what you offer? What new concepts in the healthcare and urban planning landscape will find their way to senior living concept designs?

Join us for an engaging reflection on what senior living may look like in the not-so-distant future, in this closing keynote presentation.
