  • Strategies and Innovations to Strengthen the ADS Industry

Additionally, there will be site visits at four Chicago area Adult Day Services centers as well as Pre-conference Workshops on Wednesday, September 27th. Space for site visits is limited and early registration is strongly encouraged.


Special Keynote Speaker
This year’s Keynote Speaker during the Thursday Opening Session is Dave Iverson, author of “Winter Stars…An elderly mother, an aging son and life’s final journey.” Dave Iverson is a writer, documentary film producer/director, and retired broadcast journalist. Dave was a busy broadcast journalist who had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease when he decided to do something he’d never quite imagined: He moved in to take care of his 95-year-old mother. “Winter Stars” is the moving story of Dave Iverson and his mother Adelaide and their decade-long caregiving odyssey, which lasted until Adelaide Iverson’s death at the age of 105. All royalties from the sale of Winter Stars go to support: The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research; Dance for PD; and Avenidas, a San Francisco Bay Area organization providing caregiver support.
