IQ 2018: What's In a Number?

IQ 2018: What's In a Number? is happening October 23 & 24 at the Sheraton, Red Deer!

We measure our lives by milestone birthdays. Too often, though, the mile markers on life's highway cause anxiety instead of excitement. While aging is inevitable, changing the conversation so that we embrace aging can only bring positive results. The "magic numbers" of life can become less confining and life's transition can be the adventure we often take for granted!

How do we do this?

At IQ 2018, we will celebrate seniors who are doing amazing things regardless of their number. We will look at opportunities for government, the public, care providers and others to work together to change the conversation. We will examine technology and the role of innovative thinking in making this possible, examine emerging research, and we will consider other "numbers" such as demographics, gaps in resources, aging of infrastructure, among others.

Exhibitors will demonstrate their support for seniors and their caregivers by showcasing the newest technology and services, as well as providing opportunities for learning. The conference also highlights successful quality initiatives in Alberta and celebrates excellence in the industry.

There are many spheres of influence in the world of care: family, friends, caregivers as well as government and policymakers to name a few. For the best quality of care and quality of life, these many worlds, or spheres of influence, must come together to support the recipient of care, very much like a community. IQ 2017 was all about community. And with truly world-class speakers celebrating the very best in continuing care, we hope all delegates left the conference feeling truly inspired!
