A Pioneer Visits the Valley

During his last week prior to retiring from 24 years as CEO at the Kendal Corporation, John Diffey visited the two Lathrop campuses to share reflections of his life’s work in transforming the experience of aging.
In an open conversation with residents, John stated that the success within Kendal affiliate communities, like Lathrop, depends on goodness of values, governance in collaboration with residents, staff and boards, growth as people and as an organization, generosity, and, as a resident from Lexington added, gaiety.
