NJFA promotes services that enable older adults to live in the community with independence and dignity. The organization’s mission is to address unmet needs through grant making and increase society’s awareness to influence public policy.
“We are very excited to have Steve join our Board,” notes Grace Egan, Executive Director at NJFA. “As an expert in culture change looking at aging in place from both a facilities and community perspective, we look forward to his contribution to our efforts.”
Leone is a strong proponent of resident-focused care. Working closely with providers including Francis E. Parker Memorial Home, Lillian Booth Actors Home and Assisi House, he continually innovates with architectural designs and strategies that lead the way as clients embark on and implement culture change initiatives.
In addition, Leone is a co-founder of Life Enrichment Aging in Place Professionals (LEAPp), a coalition of experienced professionals consulting with public and private organizations to create communities that support aging in place. The “think tank” is engaged in geriatric research, management, operations and market analysis as well as planning, architecture landscape design and property development.
“I am honored to join the members of the NJFA board and the senior executive council,” Leone comments. “As a passionate believer that we must do all we can to enable our seniors to age with dignity, I look forward to helping support this mission.”
In addition to senior living, Spiezle serves the academic, corporate/commercial, government, hospitality, recreational and religious markets.
