As a result of a career-long dedication to advancing senior living, LeadingAge Florida honored Harry Hobson, CEO of Plymouth Harbor on Sarasota Bay, with its Lifetime Achievement award, one of the Association’s most prestigious awards.
“Harry has committed his life’s work to serving older adults, and his true passion for providing the highest quality care is second to none,” said LeadingAge Florida President and CEO Steve Bahmer. “He is a living example of excellence in leadership. During his two decades at Plymouth Harbor, he has earned a place among the most revered senior living leaders in Florida, and we are thrilled and honored to recognize him with this award.”
LeadingAge Florida’s Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an individual with a body of work that has provided LeadingAge Florida and the state with significant and transformative leadership in aging services. The recipient must be a visionary leader and builder – someone who has made remarkable contributions and has positively impacted the field.

We are the only statewide association representing the full continuum of care for seniors.
