Lance Robertson and the Five Pillars

Lance Robertson, Asst. Secretary for Aging and Administrator of Community Living and Health and Human Services sent Lyceum attendees a special video message commending Masterpiece Living’s mission to change the experience and perception of aging in America. He shared his administration’s Five Pillars for promoting independence for older adults across the nation. They were: Expanding employment opportunities; connecting people to resources; supporting families and caregivers; protecting rights and preventing abuse; and strengthening the aging and disability network. He encouraged listeners to be bold in sharing their stories and outreaching to decision makers about areas of concern. Robertson closed by saying, “You are a shining star of how people can embrace later life, enjoy it and give back.”
