The White House continues to prepare for its Conference on Aging, set to be held in Washington next year. The conference, which occurs every 10 years, is hosted as an opportunity for those in aging and care-giving communities to provide advice and policy recommendations to the executive departments and beyond on how to secure a better future for aging Americans.

AHCA/NCAL is happy to announce that we have already had contact with the administration about the subject matter of the conference. We will continue to work with the White House to showcase the skilled nursing profession during this event.

White House staff has met with advocates nationwide to develop a framework for the series of events. Topics covered will focus broadly on preserving finances as Americans age, maintaining healthy aging, providing the appropriate support to the disabled and elderly, as well as protecting aging Americans from negligence and exploitation.

Specific dates for the conference have not yet been set, but we will continue to update members with news as we work with the administration. You can learn more about the White House Conference on Aging at their website.
