6 Things I’ve Learned about Leading in a Pandemic

Latest AGE Blog, by April Morganti, AGE Executive Director.

There are no books we can reach for as leaders to help guide teams in this pandemic. As a Licensed Crucial Conversations® practitioner and cognitive coach, it has helped to use my skills for communicating when stakes are high and emotions run strong. However, there is nothing like personal experience as teacher. During this crisis, some significant things have become clear to me on how to lead well. I thought I’d share them with you in this blog.

Congratulations to Patti Boucher, AGE Executive Director, on her Retirement

Patti Boucher retires at the end of this week after a very successful and rewarding 42-year career in healthcare, initially nursing at the point-of-care and for the last 25 years in senior healthcare leadership positions.

The AGE team thanks Patti for her steadfast belief in the importance of dementia education for staff at the point-of-care and her careful stewardship of AGE’s growth and success over the past five years. As she begins this exciting new stage in life we wish her happiness (and time to sit down to write the rest of that family recipe book she’s been itching to complete!)

Patti reflects on her time at AGE, including its growth and success as a social enterprise, with thank-yous to AGE’s partners and stakeholders. Read her Goodbye Blog here.

Stories of Hope and Joy


The AGE Blog, Winter 2018 | 2019

In the season of hope and as a new year approaches, we thought we’d share some stories of hope and joy from the point of care — all of them achieved through collaboration.

AGE as a Social Enterprise | Meeting a need that serves the greater good

For organizations thinking about becoming a social enterprise, we hope this blog is helpful.

For those unfamiliar with the term, a social enterprise is an organization that uses a for-profit business model to achieve very specific social objectives. These objectives must be the business’s primary purpose. Not all social enterprises are not-for-profit and not all not-for-profits are social enterprises. What we all have in common is a fundamental desire to make the world a better place. AGE has a foot in both worlds … Read the full blog here

The holidays are about moments as well as memories

This time of year, we celebrate the things that make our lives meaningful and fulfilling — time with family and friends, shared memories and giving gifts to those we love. The holidays are often a nostalgic time, too. We reminisce about holidays past and the memories flood in. Although people suffering from dementia may not retain holiday memories, taking part in special holiday moments still matters.
