IAHSA’s Mission is to connect and support ageing service providers around the world to increase quality of life for the elderly. We have found that one of the best ways for shared learning and innovation development is through personal networking and one-on-one interaction. As a result, we have created opportunities for IAHSA members to participate in study tours to foster individual dialogue with leading policy makers and professionals, while experiencing the rich culture and customs in different countries. To ensure maximum opportunity for interaction and discourse, IAHSA Study Tours limit participation to 24 individuals.
As an international association, IAHSA helps members connect across the globe via both simple introductions and more formal learning experiences. To encourage peer-to-peer sharing, IAHSA facilitates two distinct onsite learning opportunities: educational site visits and IAHSA/LeadingAge study tours. Both allow participants to learn about aging services organizations by seeing and experiencing the unique features and programming they offer. Based on feedback, IAHSA has learned that the onsite educational experience
is equally beneficial to attendees and hosts. Past hosts say the experience allowed their teams to celebrate their successes and enjoy a sense of team cohesion, among other benefits.
IAHSA helps with the following:
►Educational Assistance for Site Visits
►IAHSA/LeadingAge Study Tour
