Lifestyle55+ Service Provider Affiliate Training Program.  Formerly known as the Pivotal Accredited Senior Agent™ Program.

After more than a decade delivering the ASA™ program, Lifestyle 55+ Network, Inc. has advanced their education program to offer information and training to all service providers and professionals who work with older adults.  

Our experience has shown that professionals & service providers are often challenged to deliver a targeted message, offer a person-centred approach to clients, and clearly understand older adults and the factors that impact their decision making. As well, many businesses and professionals have difficulty locating senior-focused marketing and networking opportunities.

In addition to creating a networking forum, our education program provides live online instruction and supportive information - including multiple useful documents - to address the challenges inherent in working with seniors as they encounter various life events and transitions.  In order to be successful, professionals from all service sectors should have a general understanding of their older clients’ situations, and where their services fit within the tapestry of resources required, as a senior ages and has changing needs. History, insight, agendas, motivations, marketing ideas, and more, are offered in a live remote class delivered over 3, 3-hour sessions over 3 consecutive weeks.

This Canadian-based program is designed for any professional who works with seniors or wants to work with seniors. It is ideal for professionals in various fields of practice who work with older adults such as:  REALTORS®, Financial Services, Consulting Services, Home Care Providers, Downsizers, Movers, Legal Services, Executor Services, Care Planners, Retirement Home Staff, Estate Planners, PSWs, Accessibility Services, Social Workers, Discharge Planners, LTC Providers, and any other service or person who interacts with seniors and their families.

Lifestyle 55 + Network, Inc. wants this program to be as accessible as possible to those who work in the senior sector so that older Canadians can obtain person-centred service from all professionals they interact with; we are offering this program at an affordable rate with a low annual renewal fee to maintain affiliation with the program.
