Opening Discussion Topic:
Seniors are the fastest growing population segment in California. In fact, by 2030, according to KPBS, the 65+ demographic is expected to grow 50% – from 6 to 9 million residents. To prepare, Gov. Newsom’s ordered the State to create a “Master Plan on Aging,” by October 2020, but it’s unlikely that a plan alone will magically provide enough funding to enable most middle-income seniors to remain in the Golden State, when already nearly half of California’s elderly can’t pay for their basic needs – and many are homeless.
Fortunately, for those who were able to “get ready for a longer retirement” by socking away cash, Life Plan Communities enable their residents to live rich, purposeful lives. And, for those on the other end of the economic spectrum, community benefits, healthcare for “dual eligibles,” and even Affordable Housing is (sometimes) available. During our Group Discussion we’ll look to hear your take on the services and opportunities that might enable seniors of all income strata to age well in California. Then our Featured Member Presenter, Tara McGuinness, VP, Operations of HumanGood, will share how the vision of a dozen ministers and missionaries evolved into California’s largest non-profit senior living provider. And, how, looking beyond their Life Plan Communities and Affordable Housing, they’re considering new ways to serve non-resident elders.
RSVP today – and let us know of any “Issues” You’d Like to Discuss for Feedback, too.
Tara McGuinness, COO of HumanGood, began her healthcare career, in 1996, as the Executive Director of The Terraces of Los Altos, where she had to get NIMBY activists – rabidly opposed to the facility’s growth plans – to stand down. Having proven herself there, she was promoted to regional manager for ABHOW, then VP, regional operations manager for six of then-ABHOW’s 11 Life Plan Communities, on to VP, Operations, and now, with expanded responsibilities for both Ops and healthcare strategy, for post-merger HumanGood.
