Thank you for visiting the LEADER website. I would like to thank the LEADER board members for giving me the opportunity to serve as the President of LEADER for 2017/18. Like all of the members of the board, I have a passion to make a difference in the lives of all of our elders, regardless of where they live. Providing person centered care is essential for any caregiver who cares for elders who are no longer independent and may need assistance in their day to day life. With the ever growing number of elders in our nation who may require assistance in the near future, we want to be able to ensure them that they don't have to compromise their right to make choices about their day to day life decisions and that they will be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve when receiving any services they may require. Our organization is ready to join hands with all the other organizations and service providers to ensure this happens.
We hope that you will find useful information and resources on this website on both the local and national level. If you are interested in joining LEADER, please click on the "Members" tab to learn more about membership and benefits.
The 9th Annual LEADER Summit will be held in Baton Rouge, LA, March 7- 8, 2018. Each year, the Summit provides a tremendous opportunity to share information that promotes and improves person-centered care across the entire continuum of care. We hope to see you there.
Barbara Anthony, RN, LNC
