ABOUT CHANGEMAKERS

The world is a very different place compared to when we introduced our first class of Changemakers in 2019. Today, the need for transformative leadership in senior living remains more critical than ever in a rapidly changing health care and housing landscape.

This year, we’re pleased to introduce our 2020 class of Changemakers.

These leaders exemplify the vision and skills needed to forge a successful future for senior living. We conducted in-depth interviews with each one of these nine pioneers, delving into the impressive ways that they have shaped senior living as we know it today as well as their ambitious plans and ideas for how to create the senior living of tomorrow.

We are proud to share their stories here, in a series sponsored by Yardi.
