On May 2, the Morning Pointe Foundation will present an in-person panel discussion, “How to Make Tough Decisions for Your Aging Loved One,” at Shoreline Church in Knoxville.

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.

Experts and their topics will be:

Moderating the discussion will be Gabrielle Blake, elder care coordinator with Franklin & Kyle Law, LLC.

“Navigating through the maze of healthcare can be challenging for caregivers and persons living with illness,” said Blake. “Having a better understanding of community resources can help to reduce that stress. We want the attendees to know they are not alone – that there is hope and there is help.”

Tickets are not required for the event. Shoreline Church is located at 9635 Westland Drive, Knoxville, TN 37922. Guests should park in the upper parking lot and enter at the main entrance.

“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 aging loved ones have 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.”

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The nonprofit was created in 2014 to provide caregiver support programs, sponsor educational awareness events and fund scholarships to advance the care of seniors throughout the Southeast.

Founded in 1997 by Vital and Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 38 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states: Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and Indiana.
