Long-term care expenses topic of seminar Wednesday in Kannapolis

The monthly Caring Connections Seminar will be Wednesday, March 26, at 11:30 a.m. at Whitley’s Annex Chapel, 1748 Dale Earnhardt Blvd., Kannapolis. Refreshments will be served.
Justin Keeralt, admissions director for Brian Center in Concord, will speak on Payor Resources for Long-Term Care. To be faced with this expense can be devastating to a family or individual who may have to consider possible long-term care, and oftentimes options for handling this expense may be unknown.
Because March is Senior Nutrition Month, attendees are asked to bring in three food items (canned or boxed) for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to WalMart.
Comfort Keepers wants to keep seniors healthy and independent, and nutrition is an essential component. Many seniors suffer from being under-nourished or malnourished. Also, many seniors may have to choose between their food and medication. And, because the number of older adults will double in the next 30 years, that means more seniors are affected every day. During March, Comfort Keepers is campaigning to “Stop Senior Hunger” by having collection barrels placed in different location of the counties served.
RSVP by Tuesday noon, March 25, to 704-640-5152 or email annmeasmer@comfortkeepers.com
