 “Aging Connections (AC) is a phenomenal platform that promotes the connectivity and collaboration of individuals who support our aging population. There’s always the opportunity to build relationships with area professionals, attend physician led educational programs, as well as connect one-on-one with community leaders. Aging Connections is a catalyst for uniting & promoting aging-focused organizations… enabling individuals to become better community resources. My favorite aspect of Aging Connections is their member-sponsored listserv communication system! There are three area-focused listservs that provide an instant connection with area professionals in Northwest Indiana, Michiana, and Fort Wayne; enabling members the tool to promote industry specific services and advice… as well as the opportunity to ask area experts aging related questions… enabling everyone to be a better resource for the people we serve.”

 "Aging Connections of Michiana (ACOM) is a networking, marketing and educational non-profit group that started in Mishawaka/South Bend and is rapidly growing across Indiana.  The group consists of organizations that work with our aging community and members are health professionals, senior service agencies, long term care facilities, home health services, hospice organizations, medical equipment, elder law, financial experts, physicians, etc.   I believe in this organization so strongly that I am involved as the ACOM Kosciusko County Area Director and on the Board of Directors."

"I want to share a lovely moment I had with a recent inquiry. A family was just starting to look into senior living options for their mom and started out at a community they knew in passing. When it turned out that that community was not the best fit for their family, they couldn't believe that community referred them to some options that were a better fit to what they were looking for. They couldn't believe that a "competitor" would try and help another business, so I got to share with them how awesome our Aging Connections Community is! So, thank you, to each and every one of you who are the "coopetition" with the passion for helping seniors and their families!"

“I love ACOM and am amazed by the strength of the organization and so proud to be part of it.”

"I joined Aging Connections with little knowledge of what it was, but at the time, I was new to my role and was open to new opportunities. A few months later, I have fallen in love with the mission, values, and team Aging Connections exhibits. I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of the listserv and it has become my go to when I am seeking any type of resource in my community and surrounding communities. If you are looking for new opportunities to advance your network professionally, and personally, I encourage you to join Aging Connections - you won't be disappointed!"

"I was encouraged to join Aging Connections by a colleague of mine. I was looking to further my knowledge of the community and opportunities to engage more in the area. I joined Aging Connections without hesitation and have had the privilege of attending educational events that I have never attended in my career, nor would have known about without Aging Connections. Aging Connections has given my career a boost and opportunities to make even more connections outside of the Fort Wayne area."

I love being a part of Aging Connections of Michiana! I may not be able to make every meeting, however it is nice to receive the email updates and questions. As a community of varied resources, we all work together to help our senior patients/families/residents have a smooth as possible transition to the next stage of their journey. Thanks to opportunities provided by Aging Connections, I know and trust the leaders of our area resources and have a level of comfort in knowing that the family I am recommending will be well cared for. I know in my heart that the trust I have for our resource providers shines through as I am speaking with prospective families/residents. 

As the Director of Business Development for Vertis Therapy, I found Aging Connections to be an amazing way of networking and connecting with other professionals in the area! I have been a PTA in skilled nursing for the past 11 years, but am brand new to the sales, marketing, and business development side of our industry. Aging Connections has allowed me to connect and form personal relationships with a multitude of professionals in the healthcare, advertising, and business world! I am so thankful to be a part of this group and excited to have my network
