As an entrepreneur, lawyer, and innovator, Robert Kasirer created an integrated software system to assist in managing healthcare operations. Receiving a JD degree from St. John’s University School of Law, Robert Kasirer currently serves as the director of the Jacob Rose Family Foundation.
The Jacob Rose Family Foundation is an organization that promotes research for age-related initiatives. In 2010, the foundation sponsored a two-day symposium for around 300 participants to talk about the newest trends in nursing homes to “empowered aging.”
Some statistics were shared to prompt discussions, including the fact that by the year 2030, one out of every five Americans will be over the age of 64. Another is that the current anti-aging industry has proven to be an $8 billion enterprise, with every major cosmetics manufacturer creating lotions and creams to give people more youthful-looking skin. In this lively conference, architects, students, and experts discussed alternatives for senior housing, health, mobility, and solutions to support an aging population.
