Aging in Place Holiday Gift

by Louis on December 23, 2016

My dear friend and colleague Patrick Roden, PhD. just put out his list of Aging in Place Influencers for 2016. I want to make an important addition at the top of the list. I nominate Dr. Patrick Roden. There is no more dedicated and passionate advocate.

Patrick’s eyes, ears and keen attention are always roving for new people and new ideas. He has a remarkably open mind. He knows a lot and expresses it well. He is a really pleasant fellow. It carries over to the energy he brings to his website, Aging in and tweets. I have been appreciating Patrick for years.

Why would I write more? Enjoy what Patrick gives us from his big heart.

Happy holidays. This season’s gift is Patrick.

I could not agree more. Patrick does not simply speak or advocate for “Aging in Place……I’ve watched him hold the hands of those who benefit from the passion he promotes…..and listen…….and smile……and connect…..

Patrick has proven to be both an excellent resource and a continuing source of inspiring and thought provoking ideas. His ideas influence is growing in ways yet to be discovered. It will be interesting to look back 20 years from today.
