Living a Self-Determined Life

Living a Self-Determined Life

A Conference on Empowerment for Older Adults

June 1-2, 2015

Glacier Canyon Lodge Conference Center at the Wilderness Resort Wisconsin Dells

Join InControl Wisconsin for this one-day conference exploring self-determination and empowerment in aging. This statewide event will examine new approaches to providing support to older adults that encourage autonomy and choice.

The Living a Self-Determined Life conference brings together people who are committed to the notion that older adults should be empowered to live the life they choose. Our goals for this event are to:

Challenge traditional ways of thinking about quality of life and explore how older adults can retain control and choice

Give voice to older adults’ desire and capacity to maintain control of their lives – including people with dementia

Promote the exchange of information between older adults, 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

More information and registration will be available in April 2015.
