Looking Back, Looking Forward: Marking 100 Episodes of Elevating Eldercare

“Elevate Eldercare” hits a major milestone this week with 100 episodes, so Susan Ryan sat down with the newest member of the Green House Project team to discuss the biggest ideas from the podcast’s first year – and how they can be applied to the ongoing discussion around eldercare reform in America. Alex Spanko recently joined GHP as director of communications and marketing, having previously covered post-acute and long-term care for Skilled Nursing News in Chicago. Spanko discusses his motivations for leaving trade journalism to play a more active role in shaping eldercare environments before he and Ryan take a look back at some of the most inspiring quotes and calls to action from nearly 100 episodes of “Elevate Eldercare.” From policy reform to leadership to person-centered care, the podcast has generated provocative commentary on what must be done to truly honor elders with dignified care and supports. Stay tuned for more in the next 100 episodes!   Connect with Alex Spanko on LinkedIn and Twitter: www.linkedin.com/in/alex-spanko/ www.twitter.com/ASpankoNews Show notes/call to action: Learn more about The Green House Project: www.thegreenhouseproject.org Register for GHP’s newest in-person and virtual event, DementiaVerse: thegreenhouseproject.org/events/dementiaverse
