ADA Symposium Spring 2008

2008 ADA Spring Symposium

 

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".


Panel Speaker: Pat Callone

 

"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.
