Long Term Care Panel Discussion Oct 25th

Submitted by Lori Eberly, Comfort Keepers

There are many joys families experience within the relationships they have with senior relatives. Grandma and Grandpa are often able to tell the best tales of times past. The memories they impart during family get-togethers, along with valuable family history seniors recount, become the ties that bind many families together. Our elder ancestors are the very roots that strengthen each relative’s sense of place, comfort and knowledge of how they came to be in this world. But along with the joys seniors bring to our lives are hard decisions that may eventually need to be made regarding their ability to live alone. In these instances, family members find themselves in the position of deciding who can provide the best care for their loved ones. Typically, this decision-making process – from recognition to solution – can take approximately a year and a half.

On Thursday October 25th from 4p-6p, area agencies and organizations will be joining together to provide education and insight on the available services along the continuum of caring for an aging loved one by way of a panel discussion and exhibition entitled Who Are You Gonna Call? Community Resources For Caregivers and Older Adults. The panel and exhibition will incluse representatives from Rufty-Holmes, Trinity Oaks, The Lutheran Home, Veterans Administration, Department of Social Services, Advanced Home Care, Comfort Keepers, Carolina Senior Care (PACE), Alzheimer’s Association, Rowan Regional Medical Center, Rowan Hospice and Palliative Care, Abundant Living Adult Day Services/Support U, and the Family Caregiver Support Program. Each representative will be available to answer questions during the panel discussion and will have exhibit tables set up for attendees to visit and gather additional information.

Who Are You Gonna Call? Will be held in the Special Events Room at Trinity Oaks Retirement Community,728 Klumac Rd, Salisbury, NC. Please RSVP to Comfort Keepers at 704-630-0370 by 5pm on Tuesday Oct 23rd.
