Growth in the senior population is creating an increasingly large market for senior care and products that help seniors age more gracefully. With high-growth markets, it is common for people and companies to appear with less than stellar ethical standards. Unfortunately, ethics is one of the elephants in the room when it comes to senior care.
In this Leaders in Eldercare interview, I had the pleasure to speak with Eve Stern, co-founder and co-CEO of SNAPforSeniors. In this discuss, we take on the issue of ethics, discussing the pros, cons and gaps in elder care today. I think you’ll enjoy the conversation and the leadership by example Eve has employed at SNAP.
