More About AiPBN
The AiPBN is composed of businesses and organizations that provide products or services which enable and support their clients who are choosing to “age in the place of their choice.” The group’s meetings and activities provide opportunities for members that serve the 50+ age market to work together to educate themselves and their clients of the diverse public and private programs and services in our area that may benefit clients, their families and caregivers, and the greater community.
Meetings are structured but are collaborative and informal; they are a place for us to learn from and enjoy the fellowship of each other. Attendees regularly refer clients to each other based on the trust built during these interactions.
AiPBN participants are dedicated to serving their clients, informed about others who serve, and willing to educate others. Therefore they are a rich resource for consumers, caregivers, families, and other service providers.
