Jeff Huber, CEO, Home Instead Senior Care
Interviewed by Surya Kolluri, Managing Director, Thought Leadership, Retirement & Personal Wealth Solutions, Bank of America
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed approaches to healthcare, altered our concept of the essential workforce, and called out injustices toward older people. The pandemic has made us all more sympathetic to the needs of others and reminds us that we have been missing the opportunities to prepare for our growing Silver Economy. So, as we move forward to address the challenges of aging, how do we as a society and as individuals do so with a sense of passion and purpose?
