CALA Aims to Elevate Care at Fall Conference


Sponsored by Yardi, the annual conference and trade show offers insights and strategies to raise the quality of senior care

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 25, 2018 – Yardi® returns as a sponsor of the California Assisted Living Association (CALA) Fall Conference & Trade Show, set for November 5–7 at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel and Palm Springs Convention Center.

CALA hosts assisted living, memory care and CCRC providers at the conference to engage in critical discussions about senior living. This year, the event theme is “elevate,” which CALA says is inspired by senior living professionals continually seeking to improve clinical care while enhancing residents’ quality of life.

The conference program focuses on several important issues facing the senior living industry, including dementia care best practices, legal and regulatory awareness, leadership and staff culture and sales and marketing strategies.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in deep-dive sessions as well, covering disaster preparedness and how to recruit and retain top talent, critical concerns for many senior living providers. An interactive “Ask the Attorneys” session offers information on policy change and provides a forum for providers to ask questions on a wide range of legal topics affecting the California senior living industry.

Featured conference speakers include Captain George Dom, former U.S. naval officer and aviator and founder of High-Trust Leadership Network, and Jennifer Powers, best-selling author and a leading expert on shifting perspective to create change.

“The CALA conference allows senior living providers in California to network, strategize and work together to address localized issues. The opportunity to discuss new regulations and upcoming policy trends that specifically affect the state is invaluable,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living for Yardi.

CALA Conference attendees are invited to visit Yardi at Booth #47 or schedule time to meet with the Yardi senior living team to learn more about its single connected solution for senior living management.
