This SIG aims to connect AGS folks who are frustrated with the pace of change and are looking to capitalize on the often small opportunities for big gains in creating a reliable, affordable set of arrangements that support frail and disabled older adults.  We will share coffee and pastries, connect with one another, share insights and opportunities, and consider what strategies could effectively move politics and social arrangements in time to accommodate the rising numbers of elders in need of excellent geriatric care, reliable personal care, and workable caregiving and financing.
