On March 18, the Morning Pointe Foundation will present its first in-person panel discussion, “How to Make Tough Decisions for Your Aging Loved One,” at the Silverdale Center Creekside Theatre.
The free event, which starts at 6:30 p.m., will allow participants to ask questions from a panel of four experts in areas of financial planning, Medicaid and Medicare, veterans benefits and geriatric care.
The Morning Pointe Foundation has shifted the format of its previously web-based Caregiver Café series, which has featured speakers on educational topics from Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s to the importance of exercise as individuals age.
Facilitating the discussion will be:
“We really want to try to meet people where they are as we take our Caregiver Café series on the road this year and address some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to caring for older loved ones,” said Miranda Perez, executive director of the Morning Pointe Foundation. “A lot of family members find themselves in unfamiliar territory when an older loved one has a health event. We’d love to help answer some of those questions, hopefully before they become urgent, to help empower our area seniors and their loved ones.”
Tickets are not required for the event. The Silverdale Center Creekside Theatre is part of the Silverdale Baptist Academy campus and is located at 7236 Bonny Oaks Drive.
