The Community Caregivers Support Group’s fourth annual FREE Seminar will be at Council Road Baptist Church in Bethany on Saturday, April 1, 2017. This year’s theme, “Planning for the Future while in the Present”, will focus on eldercare/caregiving, and, as always, will provide pertinent, readily available information resources. Join us for coffee and donuts at 8:30 a.m. The seminar begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 11:45 a.m.
Our keynote speaker for the first session will be Dr. Mark Stratton, a recently retired professor from OU Medical Geriatric Education and author of a commentary on “America’s other Drug Problem”, which addresses the problem of over-medication and the effectiveness of medication to the aging body. His topic will be Using Medications Safely: A Key to Your Health. The options for session 2, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:40 a.m., will be 1) Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning led by Kathy Lee Hackett, CFP®, CEP®, and the Director of Estate Planning for The Baptist Foundation of Oklahoma and 2) Final Arrangements led by Gary Mercer with Mercer-Adams Funeral Home.
Session 3, from 10:50 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., offers a choice between 1) Clarifying Medicare with Anna Farha, representative from the State of Oklahoma Insurance Department, or 2) Addressing Dementia and Alzheimer’s led by Carla Scull, Education Coordinator for Oklahoma Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
