The RiverWoods Group has been selected by Mather Institute as a recipient of a 2022 Promising Practices Award. Now in its twelfth year, this awards program recognizes organizations working with older adults that are moving away from conventional practices by developing and implementing new and innovative approaches. Even as organizations grapple with pandemic-related challenges and changes, powerful ideas and practices continue to move the senior living industry forward. The RiverWoods Group was chosen based on their successful Seniority Authority podcast.
“The Promising Practices Award honors the RiverWoods Group for the value of its podcast designed to inform baby boomers with reliable information on a wealth of aging topics,” said Cate O’Brien, PhD, VP and Director, Mather Institute. “The awards honor true leaders in innovation and implementation. We hope these award-winning projects will serve as a catalyst for organizations across the country and around the world to spark new ideas for enhancing or creating their own programs.”
The Seniority Authority podcast shares interviews with relevant authors, physicians, researchers, scientists, and specialists. Topics range from fitness to finance, isolation to insurance, downsizing to dementia. Each podcast is 40 minutes or less and includes practical recommendations that listeners can act upon.
“Aging has changed dramatically in just one generation. I’m on a mission to help people get smarter about growing older. I interview the leading experts, thought leaders, and researchers to answer questions on aging,” said Cathleen Toomey, podcast host. “Clearly, people are eager for more information on aging! Our podcast is downloaded by 3,000 listeners a month and growing.”
