Discover Where Aging’s FUN

For a dozen years, Debbie Toth has entertained us with stories of the fun events and programs Choice in Aging provides its seniors and intergenerational “juniors” who enliven their Mt. Diablo Adult Day Health Center campus. Recent activities have included a visit from the Easter Bunny and a disc jockey, and now, ABL!

After our Networking Breakfast, we’ll tour the current Mt. Diablo campus, with its separate areas for the Center’s unique programs, including Choice in Learning – and check out the plans for the Center’s expanded Aging in Place campus that’s already under development.

Of course this will also be a great opportunity to reconnect with your ABL friends you haven’t seen for over a year, plus a perfect chance to connect with ABL Members you’ve yet to meet. Also, be sure to let us know if there are any particular issues you’d like to discuss with the Group.

Debbie Toth is CEO of Choice in Aging (CiA). She fell in love with the aging population in high school while working at the Motion Picture and Television Fund’s independent senior housing. Later, while pursuing a career in financial services, she missed her work and love for the elderly, so she joined the Choice in Aging team in 2002 and worked in various positions until she was promoted to CEO in 2012. She was then elected to the Board of Directors and became President in 2017. In addition to overseeing CiA’s two adult day health care programs – the second one is The Bedford Center in Antioch, Debbie advocates for seniors’ rights at the federal, state, and local level. Under her leadership, CiA has expanded to include the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) for Contra Costa, Napa, and Solano Counties; the California Community Transitions (CCT) project in Contra Costa, Solano, and Sacramento Counties; and the Prevention and Early Access Program for Seniors (PEAS) in Solano. Debbie realized her dream of adding intergenerational programming to CiA, in 2017, when Choice in Learning Montessori preschool was integrated into the Pleasant Hill Campus.
