Over 200 leaders from all 27 Springpoint communities and affiliates came together on Wednesday, March 29, for the annual Springpoint Leadership Summit at Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale, New Jersey.
Springpoint President and Chief Executive Officer Anthony A.

The program featured two dynamic keynote speakers who focused on the changing landscape of senior living and how employees can excel during times of challenge and change.
