As part of its Coffee & Conversation series, the Social Justice Committee of St. Therese’s Church, Shavertown is conducting a two-part program for seniors and their caregivers to recognize issues facing loved ones as they age and to focus on resources that can help.
The first program, “Local Senior Resources: A Primer,” will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Colleen Jones, care manager from the Area Agency on Aging, will present information on local resources and organizations available to assist seniors with in-home support, family caregiver support, housing, legal assistance and more.
The second program, “Compassionate Senior Care: Looking Out for Our Loved Ones,” will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Guest speaker will be James Siberski, MS, CMC, Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Gerontology Education and Director of the Geriatric Care Management Program at Misericordia University.
