The conference opens with a Keynote panel on the “State of the Industry” from the proverbial ’36-thousand feet.’ The panel will be made up of leading SENIOR CARE experts with first-hand information on the status of, and investment opportunities in, the senior care sector in the United States. As turmoil and stalemate continue to dominate healthcare policy-making, how will deal-making in the senior care sector be affected by the possibility of reductions in Medicare reimbursements?

M&A Issues in Senior Care

While non-profits still dominate the overall senior care sector, deal-flow has been traditionally higher in the for-profit space. Will that trend continue, or is there a growing appetite for roll-ups and consolidations in the non-profit senior care sector?

Private Investors Roundtable

Senior Care investing from the POV of private equity, VC investors and others. How are financial investors sizing up various business models, and deal-flow opportunities in the next 12 months?

What’s Next in Senior Care?

Alternative care models, tech-enabled services, and promoting the overall well-being of the aging population are driving innovations at a rapid pace. In this session, new companies offering unique solutions and services will participate in a ‘pitch contest’ and the audience will vote for the one company they believe should receive start-up or mezzanine funding to grow to the next level. The winner will be announced during the luncheon on Day Two of the conference.

Senior Care Lenders Roundtable

Hear from traditional and alternative lenders on the availability of capital for completing senior care transactions. What the key considerations to be considered when marshalling leverage in today’s senior care environment?

Senior Care Real Estate Roundtable

REITS and others on the unique real estate-related investment considerations in long term care, skilled nursing, assisted living and other senior care facilities. With United States-based real estate still among the safest of harbors for foreign investors, what role will foreign investors and lenders play in the year ahead?

Transaction Services Roundtable

An examination of best practices in valuations, regulatory compliance, due diligence and more. What are the “dos and don’ts” before, during and after the senior care deal?

Senior Care Distressed Debt, Bankruptcy & Restructuring Roundtable

Senior Care operators have become highly leveraged with both long-term, tax exempt debt; and shorter-term, privately-financed debt. How are lenders, investors, attorneys and restructuring and turnaround experts stepping in to deal with the increasing levels of distressed debt in the senior care space?

Legal & Regulatory Roundtable

The patchwork of local, state, and federal regulations affecting the senior care sector are constantly-changing and often confusing. What are the latest legal and regulatory issues that investors, operators and deal-makers need to understand?
