Aging (Parents):101 is designed to help people discover options for assisting their loved ones and provide a bit of a roadmap for aging. Join us Saturday, April 7, 2018, at the Freeport Performing Arts Center. Find a mail-in registration at www.MaineSeniorGuide.com
We'll kick off with Marilyn Gugliucci, the director of the geriatric program at UNE and a doctor who has changed the words we use about aging with her research.
Three more speakers follow:
* estate attorneys MaryKathryn Brennan and Smilie Rogers discuss the differences between Medicare and Medicaid/MaineCare, LTC and private pay, and other means of payment for senior living, and what they cover.
* Dr. Carl DeMars, Senior Medical Director of Ambulatory Care at MidCoastParkview Health and the Medical Director of CHANS Home Health & Hospice, will talk about Critical Conversations. How do you start and continue those crucial conversations around serious illness, future care, end-of-life, even driving?
*Kathy Adams from Maine CITE will tell us about technology that helps people maintain independence at home, and what might be coming down the pike in our technological future.
During our box lunch time, we'll be able to break out to different tables led by area experts on topics ranging from respite care and downsizing to dementia, senior travel and insurance options.
The first 50 people registering will receive copies of Atul Gawande's best seller, "Being Mortal".
