Susan Ryan sat down with Roger Myers, president and CEO of Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM). In this recap, Marla and Mary discuss how Roger became an early adopter of the Green House model, opening two homes in Redford, Mich.
Mary discusses why Myers was so amazed during the ceremony that was conducted when they turned the house over to the Shahbazim and elders. In addition, we look at how a PVM board of director member helped convince the union leaders about the importance of bringing the Green House model and empowered staff to their community.
Marla takes a deep dive into the Program for All Inclusive Care of the Elderly, or PACE, model, taking a look at its history, mission and scope of work. Roger believes PACE holds much promise for the future of senior living.
Marla explores Myers’ comment about willing to take a risk as a leader and his appreciation for the PVM Board of Directors’ ability to take measured, informed risks. She discusses the contents of an article entitled, “To Foster Innovation, Cultivate a Culture of Intellectual Bravery.”
In addition, Mary and Marla offer some trivia for listeners. Hint: it has to do with the total number of podcasts produced to date. Mary was not even close with her response!
