July 13, 2015—Kendal has provided the 2015 White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) Planning Team with a 20-page Executive Summary and a video overview of its recent intergenerational webcast on aging issues. On May 28, Kendal partnered with its local PBS-TV station to webcast live, intergenerational discussions about each of the four themes of the upcoming White House Conference on Aging: retirement security, healthy aging, long-term services and supports, and elder justice. The WHCOA has included Kendal’s video on its Videos for Watch Parties list.
Please note: It is best to download the Executive Summary and then open it in Adobe Reader (https://get.adobe.com/reader). When you do, please take a moment to check out the list of “Additional Resources” on page 16 that provides links to the official website, program guide, the archival recordings of the day’s events, photo gallery, transcripts and other information.
These “Deepening the Conversation on Aging” discussions took place in Kendal retirement communities located near Cleveland (Kendal at Oberlin), Columbus (Kendal at Granville), New York City (Kendal on Hudson), and Washington, D.C. (Collington), and were hosted and networked online from WHYY-TV’s studios in Philadelphia.
In addition to WHYY, the 2015 White House Conference on Aging and Next Avenue jointly sponsored the event with Kendal. Next Avenue, a PBS-affiliated website for 50+ adults, was a media sponsor for “Deepening the Conversation on Aging.” Next Avenue helped publicize the event, facilitated online discussion during the daylong summit and provided a recap of the webcast and related discussions.
