This is your opportunity to ask questions of three"sages" of SAGE- Maggie Calkins, Addie Abushousheh and Amy Carpenter.  Each has deep knowledge of environments for older adults and individuals living with dementia, person-centered care, codes and guidelines, shared residential settings and home and community.  In this unscripted session, we will respond to your questions on a wide array of topics, so come prepared with the questions you never get to ask in other webinars.
