Geriatric Services Conference

Allies in Aging attended and exhibited our work at the Geriatric Services Conference in June 2019, sharing resources and conversations with 150+ people. Many worked with seniors in residential care settings and spoke about seniors experiencing isolation in spite of living in a group setting. Speakers covered topics ranging from neuroethics at end-of-life to social robots. Top quotes: “We are not machines.” (Grant Gillett). “Exercise is medicine.” (Teresa Liu-Ambrose). “Mobility is a human right.” (Carol Estabrooks).
