Moorings Park to Host National Healthy Aging Consortium

September 01, 2011

Moorings Park will host leaders from various national healthy aging service organizations for the Fifth Annual COLLAGE member conference beginning Monday, September 19, 2011 through Wednesday, September 21, 2011. COLLAGE helps advance healthy aging and improve independent living of older adults.

The members of the COLLAGE consortium that include continuing care and retirement communities. As of January 2011, there were over 60 non?profit sites in 22 states participating in the membership consortium and using the COLLAGE Web-based software.

Through the COLLAGE assessment system, organizations have the opportunity to measure, track, and improve healthy aging outcomes. The assessment data leads to the development of a personalized healthy aging plan and a methodology to target the right programs/services to best match needs for a campus or community. This approach enables individuals to take charge of their own healthy aging and allows organizations to focus aging support resources appropriately for their community.

“Research supports that healthy lifestyle choices play a crucial role in promoting wellbeing. The COLLAGE assessment will ensure Moorings Park’s continued success in promoting successful aging,” said Dan Lavender, CEO/President of Moorings Park. “We are honored to host the annual COLLAGE member conference at Moorings Park.”

Topics to be covered include: what’s the business case for measuring outcomes, from a CFO’s perspective; developing a business process around an evidence-based assessment system; potential financial benefits of using a tool like COLLAGE; ways to improve healthy aging outcomes in very healthy older adults; and an explanation of clinical assessment protocols and how they may be used.
