SUMMIT – The Coalition on Family Caregiving invites the public to their upcoming panel presentation on Thursday, Oct. 14 at the Chatham Public Library, 214 Main Street at 6:45 p.m. This program, “Eldercare…Planning, Not Reacting,” addresses caregivers who share the common issues of being overwhelmed and under informed when an older adult needs their help.
The panel presentation will be moderated by Maryann Porosky, LCSW, Care Management Specialist of Caring Choices and will feature four experts: Louise Mastroeni, Sales Director, Spring Meadows Summit; Kevin McClarren, President, Home Care Assistance; David Delseni, Investment Advisor, Acorn Financial Services and Michele Cameron, RN, Community Outreach, Atlantic Home Care & Hospice.
The panel of speakers will explain ways to avoid costly mistakes — both emotional and financial — by planning now rather than facing a crisis unprepared. They will discuss choosing the right venue for care, whether it be your home, an assisted living facility or a nursing home and minimizing the financial impact it can have on your family and loved ones. You will also have an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session after the presentation.
There is no charge for this invaluable presentation. Advance reservations are requested by confirming your attendance by calling 1-800-247-9580 by Oct. 8.
