What’s the Public and Private Sector’s Role in Meeting the Housing and Care Needs of America’s Elders?

The 25th NIC National Conference will open with Congressmen John Delaney, MD (D) and Jim Renacci, OH (R). Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from two leading members of Congress, who have a long history, experience and expertise in seniors housing and understand the challenges facing the sector.

This will be a spirited discussion on key issues including:

  • how changes to the political landscape could affect the future of the senior care sector
  • how to improve outcomes and control costs with changes to Medicare and Medicaid
  • affordable middle-income seniors housing
  • steps the government should or shouldn’t take to encourage private sector initiatives so that most boomers will not have to spend down to Medicaid to meet their long-term care needs

Congressman Delaney founded and led two NYSE-listed financial services companies before the age of forty and is a past winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
