In cooperation with Visiting Angels and The Gardens at Eastside, we are presenting a 10-week workshop on many of the issues related to aging.

The classes are designed for those who are getting older, as well as the family members who are taking care of them.

Topics will include the various options for living arrangements, legal and financial issues, understanding Alzheimer's and other dementia diseases, the nature of hospice services and care, and dealing with the changing medical needs of the elderly.

The sessions begin Thursday, September 18, and run for 10 weeks.

Each session will meet at 6:30pm in the Chapel at the Downtown Campus.

The workshop is free and is open to the public!
