2017 Annual Conference
The Power of Purpose

A clear sense of purpose enables you to focus on what matters most, taking risks regardless of the challenges or obstacles ahead. We are lucky. As aging services providers, it's easy for us to see the value of our work. The lives we touch and the families and caregivers we support—all have an impact well beyond the walls of our organizations. However, to find real purpose and meaning in what we do, it is important that we tap our own potential, find the courage and determination to live our mission with focus on the values, talent, skills and passion of those we serve to make a difference in the world.
