Kansas City

Join other KC aging experts, advocates and innovators for our monthly Innovation in Aging event. Each month Aging2.0 Kansas City presents speakers covering topics related to aging and innovation followed by in-depth discussion.

Anne Xenos, Senior Care Services Manager for Prime Healthcare and St. Joseph Medical Center will be our featured speaker presenting the following topics:

  • Information on a new, innovative service line dedicated to improving the hospital experience for seniors in our community. The Senior Care Service line is set up to provide senior focused, multidisciplinary, patient centered care.
  • St. Joseph's evidence based screening tool used to determine which seniors are considered “high risk”.
  • Details on St. Joseph's new geriatric inpatient unit, the first in Kansas City.
  • In a follow-up from last month's presentation, Anne will share information about a potential partnership with The Centre for Aging & Brain Health innovation (CABHI) to test senior focused technology to support patients during their hospitalization, as well as when they leave.

Aging2.0 Kansas City's Innovation in Aging meetings are held at the GlynnDevins office at 8880 Ward Parkway (just south of the Ward Parkway Center). There is a parking garage with plenty of free parking. The meeting room is located downstairs on the first floor.

The room will be available until 11:00 am to allow for networking and continued discussion.
