Welcome to the Riverstone Gala experience. We gather to share a little fun and fellowship while we recognize exemplary advocates and practitioners who care about older people. As we honor these leaders, we honor everyone who connects with care. We honor you.
It takes a special blend of patience and courage to work with older persons, where loss is the norm. It takes a special eye to see through accumulating losses and find the spark, the spark that tells us that life is not all past, that we share joys now and share in viewing the future. For a quick confirmation of “lifeliness,” be at Riverstone when the dance music kicks up!
Riverstone is about people facilitating professional care for older persons and their family caregivers. The staff, executive director, and board of directors—from so many backgrounds–each bring patience and courage to the table, each recognize the spark that we celebrate tonight.
