Featuring boxing legend Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini
April 27, 2023 | DeSales University
Resiliency is defined as a means to bounce back from adversity and grow. Seniors, long term care providers, and the community have had their share of challenges with normal aging and the recent pandemic. Seniors are now transitioning back into life activities within a new normal environment. Caregivers of seniors are incorporating strategies and care techniques to promote resiliency and wellness among older adults. Communities are striving to create living environments that enable seniors to navigate with resilience and hope.
This conference will examine resiliency in older adults from normal aging processes to environmental stresses, clinician and practitioner strategies and techniques to promote resiliency in seniors, and community supports to strengthen the resiliency of senior citizens.
Ray Mancini, also known as Boom Boom, is one of the living legends of boxing. He is a member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the former WBA lightweight champion from 1982–84. Boxing was in Mancini’s blood, since his father was also an accomplished fighter. This inspired Ray to get started at a young age, where he had a 43-7 record as an amateur before making it to the highest levels of the sport. Ray fought in 34 fights, going 29-5 with 23 wins by knockout. Mancini has been involved in various business interests since he retired from the ring. He tried his hand in Hollywood as a producer of several films, and has been a fight analyst for the FOX reality series Celebrity Boxing.
The PIA promotes improved quality of life and care for the aging and their families. The Institute is well-known for its innovative educational programs, cooperative ventures, and outreach activities.
