Seniors and adult children with aging parents are invited to a free “Aging in Place” seminar hosted by Hill Country Memorial at the Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center, 201 Holdsworth Drive, on Thurs., Nov. 16.
A complimentary lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m. with the presentation to follow.
The presentation will describe ways to stay healthy and independent at home and will include a question-and-answer session with experts from HCM Home Care and HCM Outpatient Rehab.
“We are bringing this information to the community to help anyone as they age,” said Jasper Eisenberg, HCM event coordinator. “This event allows you to meet the experts, get your questions answered, and stay as independent and healthy as possible in your home.”
HCM experts will discuss:
• Outpatient rehab, including physical, occupational, speech therapies
• Cardiac rehab for chronic heart conditions or after a heart attack
• Fall prevention
• Home safety assessment
• Medical alert services
“Both rehabilitation and home care services have specific criteria based on your or your loved one’s mobility,” said Heather Dickens, HCM community liaison. “Our experts will define both services to help you make informed decisions about which options work best for you.”
For more information and to RSVP, call 866-421-4264. Seniors, those with aging parents, spouses and caregivers are welcome to attend.
