Below is information from our 2008 ADA Spring Symposium. Our topic for the Symposium was, "Ways to develop Safe and Stimulating Living Environments as we Age".
"In our culture...we talk about those over 65, 75, 85, etc., as a group with similar needs as they age. We all know that individuals age differently, and older persons often face life transitions they never believed would occur," says Patricia R. Callone, one of the seminar presenters.

Patricia R. Callone, Creighton Vice President for Institutional Relations, is also a co-author of two books about Alzheimer's Disease.
BevVan Phillips is CEO of Home Access Solutions, Inc. and is both a licensed Occupational Therapist in Nebraska and Iowa and a licensed REALTOR in Nebraska, with Prudential Ambassador Real Estate. She graduated with honors from the School of Allied Health, Louisiana State University Medical Center. She holds designations showing advanced study in a variety of fields which she uses to carry out her mission of helping people with disabilities and seniors live as independently as possible.
BevVan believes in continually improving her skills to deliver what her clients need to live safely and independently, but her underlying strength are the lessons taught by her family. BevVan's desire to become an Occupational Therapist and ultimately create Home Access Solutions was inspired by her parents and each of her brothers. Through their examples of wisdom, ingenuity, courage and perseverance she learned early that there is more than one way to do almost any human activity and that independence at
home leads to independence in the community.
