Keynote: To age well and in place, older people need health care and social supports. Our public policies regarding payments and priorities challenge our ability to meld these supports into comprehensive individualized plans of care. The root cause of many of our challenges is our continuing struggle to deliver and pay for long-term care.
Kathy Greenlee is the Vice President of Aging & Health Policy at the Center for Practical Bioethics, where she is responsible for promoting increased use of Transportable Physician Orders for Patient Preferences (TPOPP) in Missouri and Kansas. TPOPP is part of a similar effort in other states. The nationwide approach is called the POLST paradigm. She advocates for increased use of advance directives, engages with community based aging and disability organizations around issues relating to advanced illness and end of life care, works to improve transitions of care by bridging between health care providers and community based organizations, and provides visibility and support for regional work in the area of elder abuse prevention and response.

Keynote: Join Loretta Veney as she provides her personal perspective to the medical aspects of dementia and its impact on relationships. She chronicles her current 11-year journey as her Mom’s caregiver and discusses how forgiveness, patience, preparation and humor all work together to effectively manage Caregiving challenges.
Loretta Woodward Veney was born with a love of life and a positive spirit. The three most important things in her life have always been her family, friends and faith. She loves adventures, traveling, learning something new every day and inspiring others.
Throughout her life, Loretta has chronicled family events through journals, photos, and videos, seeking to capture every moment. After her beloved mother Doris was diagnosed dementia in 2006, Loretta began documenting the details of doctor visits, and recording people, places, and things as a substitute for her Mom's lost memory. The combination of written documentation and her incredible memory became Loretta's first published work in 2012, entitled Being My Mom’s Mom.
Loretta’s second book published in 2017 entitled Refreshment for the Caregiver’s Spirit, is a collection of travel photos taken by Loretta and her late husband Tim. Each scenic photo contains an inspirational message from Loretta intended to lift caregiver’s spirits as they navigate life’s challenges.
Since 2014 Loretta has delivered more than 250 presentations on dementia and caregiving that have inspired audiences throughout the United States.
