This is an intensive 3-day training program for elderly care facility managers and leaders. Participants will learn and apply the Swedish methodology of everyday leadership and best practices to lead senior care organizations.

We are in the midst of rapid population aging worldwide, which means the need for proper caregiving is also in high demand. This presents continuous challenges to elderly care management teams. There is the constant need to juggle a high standard of quality care, comply with local regulatory guidelines, maintain a team of engaged professionals, all while growing your community reputation and stabilising balance sheets. With so much at stake, where can managers find solid practice and inspiration to utilize limited resources dynamically?
