NCAL Spring Conference 2015 Thrives in Fort Lauderdale

Katherine Preede


The fourth annual NCAL Spring Conference brought close to 150 assisted living providers from across the country to Ft. Lauderdale. NCAL officers expanded upon the theme of the conference, “Thrive in a New Health Care Environment” by discussing current and forthcoming issues during a panel discussion at the opening general session. Meanwhile, keynote speakers Mike Schlappi and Jeff Havens motivated providers to face their fears and strengthen their leadership skills. 

Education sessions offered ways for assisted living providers to improve quality, covering topics such as dementia care, staff stability, satisfaction surveys, rehospitalizations, and quality improvement plans. Other sessions focused on emergency preparedness, litigation, opening new communities, care transitions, active aging, virtual senior care, and ethical decision making. 

NCAL’s next in-person educational offering will be held Sun. Oct. 4 at the ninth annual NCAL Day, once again kicking off the AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention & Expo to be held in San Antonio, Tex. Registration will open in April.
