I would highly recommend Mr. Peter Aarssen as a speaker for any aging event or seminar that you are holding. Peter was recently on the Faculty for our annual Elder Planning Issues Conference held in Niagara Falls, ON June 5-7, 2016. His presentation dealt with Social Impact of an Aging Society. In this presentation he showed us through the use of news articles, and publicly produced trend lines that conveyed the rapid aging and ill preparedness of almost every sector to attend to our aging society's needs. He dealt with the need to make future changes on how we as a society are looking at aging financial, healthcare, working conditions, personal care and family issues to ensure that the right care model is in place for our every changing aging society. Thank you Pete for not candy coating the reality of what we are in store for if immediate changes are not made for our future aging society.
