Aging Media Announces Future Leaders Awards Class of 2020

Aging Media Network today announced this year’s Future Leaders Awards honorees, recognizing high-performing employees who are shaping the next decade of care delivery across the senior housing, skilled nursing, home health and hospice industries.

The 2020 awards program is sponsored exclusively by PointClickCare Technologies, the leading cloud-based software platform for the senior care market today.

Future Leaders are nominated by their peers and are recognized as dynamic leaders, ages 40 years or under, who are shaping the next decade of care delivery. These passionate workers know how to put vision into action for the good of seniors and aging industry professionals, and they are committed to the wellbeing of the aging population and the industries they serve.

“We are thrilled to showcase these leaders across the care continuum with the Future Leader designation,” says Aging Media Co-Founder George Yedinak. “As the aging population grows and care models continue to shift, we need Future Leaders more than ever to pave the way for the future of senior care.”

This year’s Future Leaders class recognizes more than 20 individuals in their respective industries, all of whom will be featured in upcoming Aging Media publications, and will be recognized at Aging Media’s FUTURE virtual event to be held September 16-17.

“PointClickCare is honored to be the exclusive sponsor for this year’s awards program,” says Dave Wessinger, co-founder and president, PointClickCare. “Together with Aging Media we are committed to recognizing these well-deserving future leaders and their organizations. We applaud them and look forward to seeing the continued impact they have on care delivery and the senior care industry.”
