Professional eldercare providers


How is your organization adapting to the growth and impact of cannabis medicinal treatments, healthcare services, consumer demand, and regulations? 

Big changes around cannabis are taking place in senior-living and eldercare. That’s because the evidence-based, therapeutic use of cannabis is effective in addressing neurodegenerative disease symptoms—often more safely and less costly than synthetic pharmaceutical products.

Eldercare providers, we want you to stay ahead of the curve when residents, clients, and families ask about your cannabis policies and your knowledge of successful and safe cannabis use by elders and care teams.

The most engaged dementia-service providers work to constantly update themselves with the latest research so that they can help residents and their families manage dementia’s progress and impact.
— Sarah Lai Stirland, “Untangling the Mysteries of the Brain” Senior Living Executive, January–February, 2019
