Fact: 47 participants + 711 total tweets + 5,576,413 impressions = one hour chock full of resources for anyone considering a senior living search now or in the future. Long-time #ElderCareChat supporter and participant Will Dobbs, aka @LaPosadaGVAZ, served as our guest, sharing his perspective as an employee of an innovative senior living community in Green Valley, Arizona, but everyone using the #ElderCareChat hashtag this Wednesday afternoon from 1-2pm ET had many excellent tips and insights to share (which made compiling this week’s recap a major challenge!). Be sure to review ALL the good stuff shared via the transcript link, found below the visual recap.
