Free Symposium: Managing the Aging Process, at JCC

On Tuesday December 2, 2014 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, there will be a free symposium on aging and caregiving at the JCC at 1391 Martine Avenue, Scotch Plains NJ 07076 called “Managing the Aging Process – Practical Advice for Adults with Aging Relatives.” Here’s the flyer: Center for Hope (3)

Supper is included free! The event is co-sponsored by the JCC and the Center for Hope. CALL 908-288-0501 or email nrager@cfhh.org to register (preregistration is kindly requested).

The panel includes specialists in social services/geriatrics, end of life care, elder law, and dementia assessment. I will be one of the 5 panelists, and we will field questions such as  preventing conflicts among your children, when is it time to call for hospice care, what programs are out there to help you age in place, what are the impacts, losses and needs for family caregivers, how are powers of attorney used and abused, and more. There should be lots of opportunity for the participants to ask questions. Tell your friends! Bring your parents! I hope to see you all there.
