Argentum Quarterly is dedicated to shedding light on Argentum's mission to help its members gain a better understanding through research of what aging means today and in the future, and how the senior living industry can assist. Through this research, Argentum addresses the critical imperatives facing senior living: memory care, workforce development, quality improvement, operational excellence, and consumer choice. Argentum Quarterly is a member-only publication.
In this issue, we focus on innovations in care for individuals experiencing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. By highlighting six novel approaches from the United States and Europe based on their effectiveness, ability to be widely implemented, and how well they address top needs expressed among those leading in senior living, our hope is that a community executive director will be inspired to implement one of these programs. We also highlight a quarterly workforce report containing data from the senior living industry’s performance in the fourth quarter of 2016 based on the latest numbers available from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In this issue, we explore the Department of Education’s database of accredited colleges and universities offering higher learning in the fields of gerontology and adult development & aging.
