LTCCC Holds Fourth Annual Event

Honoring an individual whose career has focused on improving the life of nursing home residents
and changing the way we think about our elderly.

Dr. Bill Thomas

Dr. Bill Thomas, President of the Eden Alternative

"Where elders live must be habitats for human beings,
not sterile medical institutions."

"All human beings retain a capacity for growth, no matter how small,
until the last breath is drawn."

Dr. Thomas is dedicated to eliminating the plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom that make life intolerable in too many of our nursing homes.

Although fog on Wednesday, October 3rd prevented Bill from appearing in person, he was able to make his presentation by telephone! Bill's charismatic style reached through the phone and his comments and response to questions encouraged the audience to think about aging in many new ways.  A good time was had by all.
