Sustaining Catholic Senior Care Webinar

Thursday, April 29
2-3:30 p.m. ET.

Senior care across the country is experiencing major challenges as COVID-19 magnified systemic weaknesses in funding, staffing, pandemic preparedness, lack of connection with acute care and failures to adopt innovations in telehealth and home care.

The situation is particularly acute for single site, Catholic facilities, where sponsors and boards have utilized limited congregational funds to stem operating losses. Unfortunately, waiting too long to take remedial action has resulted in the sale and loss of Catholic identity for many organizations.


Space is limited.

Please note: If you do not already have a CHA account, you will be asked to create one when you register so you can access the webinar.

Join us for the Sustaining Catholic Senior Care webinar on Thursday, April 29, 2-3:30 p.m. ET.
to examine potential pathways to address these acute financial burdens and explore a framework for decision making for a sustainable future.

The webinar is ideal for sponsors, CEOs, CFOs, senior executives and board members of long-term care systems and facilities who are interested in sustaining and advancing the Catholic senior care ministry.

The complimentary program is offered by CHA in partnership with LeadingAge, a national organization that represents more than 5,000 nonprofit aging services providers, mission-minded organizations and 38 state partners to advance quality aging services; and Ziegler, one of the nation's leading underwriters of financing for non-profit senior living providers.
