Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Lisa WellsThe Western Dairyland Business Center and the Women's Business Center invite entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners interested in providing professional services to the aging to attend an Industry Roundtable Discussion on Wednesday, August 15th, noon to 1 p.m. at the Western Dairyland Community Action Agency, 418 Wisconsin Street, Eau Claire.

The cost is $15 and lunch will be provided. There are three easy ways to register and pay for the roundtable: online at www.SuccessfulBusiness.org, by phone at 836-7511 ext. 1171, or in person at the Western Dairyland office in downtown Eau Claire. Because space is limited, pre-registration and payment is required.


The purpose of each industry roundtable discussion is to gather entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners within the same field to share their experiences and best practices, network, and find new and innovative ways to collaborate.

As Baby Boomers begin to age into retirement, The Women's Business Center at Western Dairyland has observed an increase in the number of clients seeking to serve this population with businesses providing transportation services, in-home health care, adult family homes and more. Lisa Wells, Dementia Care Specialist for the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) in Eau Claire has keen insight into the practical needs of this population and how they may be best served without overlapping with existing services.

The mission of the ADRC is to help people age 60+ and adults with disabilities secure needed services or benefits, live with dignity and security and achieve maximum independence and quality of life. The ADRC is a grant program through the Federal Department of Health & Human Services Administration on Aging, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The grant program was developed to assist states in their efforts to create a single, coordinated system of information and access for all persons seeking long-term care support to minimize confusion, enhance individual choice and support informed decision-making.
