2020 Year in Review
As we look back on 2020, we have much to reflect on. COVID has changed everything for providers of aging services. LeadingAge members have shown true courage in so many ways this year—making hard decisions, fighting for needed resources, and leading your organizations through dark days.
All of us at LeadingAge worked hard to help you meet this challenge. As the year comes to a close, we’re reflecting on this unprecedented time. Each day this week, we’ll look back on 2020 and how we banded together to make it through.
Without a doubt, pandemic-related challenges continue as we fight a winter surge in COVID cases that promises to be the worst we have seen to date. But there’s a way to transform many of those challenges into opportunities. The coming year is sure to bring great opportunities to safeguard and improve the lives of the people we serve. And LeadingAge will be here for you every step of the way.
Following are the latest news and resources.
