Dr. Paul Tang, Vice President, Chief Innovation and Technology Officer and Director of the Druker Center for Innovation at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, will tell us about a new, innovative program called linkAges. It is a multi-generational program that activates and engages community to support aging in place. This program makes it possible for seniors to use their talents to help others, which in turn helps them to retain their self esteem, health, and sense of well being. Dr. Tang will outline the linkAges system and the community engagement model that brings diverse individuals together to create a redefined vision to support the shifting demographics of our communities. This program can potentially be helpful to our senior clients and to younger clients who can play an important part in helping seniors to age in place. Dr. Tang is a very dynamic speaker who will welcome our ideas and questions.
