Robert Kramer has been on the forefront of thought leadership for decades; his thought leadership in the field of aging and aging services is unparalleled.
In recognizing the importance of rethinking aging from every angle he knew the importance of having conversations across disciplines. Thus, he launched NEXUS Insights, an organization which engages a network of leading thinkers and thinking leaders to provide insights and develop actionable models to address the challenges faced by older adults and our society's caring for them.
Mr. Kramer's theological background is apparent. His style and presentation is captivating; one can't help to be drawn in to his every word.
Mr. Kramer traces his beginnings in the early 90's as co-founder of NIC. Under his leadership, the organization became the go-to resource for data and analytics for the rapidly expanding seniors housing and care industry and he was acknowledged as a thought leader for new ideas and trends impacting the provision of housing, services and care for older adults as well as addressing the ageism that often relegates older adults to lives of learned dependency, helplessness and loneliness. He'll share what he learned from then and the thread that runs through to his latest insights, concerns about how we move forward in caring for older adults and the burgeoning older population.
He, as well as many others, know that nursing homes must be reimagined. Our system of caring for older adults is out of step with current needs and many of the nursing home buildings where people reside are relics of the past.
Will society have the appetite to spend the amount of money that will be needed to care for older adults as they advance in years to the end of their life journey?
Listen in to what Mr. Kramer has to say. I was hanging on every word.
