Promoting Choice and Control for All

The Aging Empowerment Conference brings together people who are committed to the notion that older people should be empowered to live the life they choose. Our goals for this event are to:

  • Give voice to older people’s desire and capacity to maintain control of their lives – including people with dementia
  • Promote the exchange of information among older people, family members, and professional caregivers
  • Explore how individuals, agencies, and organizations can collaborate to design programs and services that allow opportunity for self-determination
  • Identify effective ways to support and empower family caregivers
