Aging and Disability Forum III – Local Experts, Local Resources
May 16, 2014
8:00am – 3:30pm
Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis, MA

It’s back by popular demand: The Barnstable County Department of Human Services is proud to be hosting its next aging and disability forum on Friday, May 16th. But this time, thanks to a generous sponsorship from Cape Cod Healthcare, the forum will actually be an all-day conference!

With help from feedback provided by past forum participants, multiple breakout sessions have been developed focusing on some of the major concerns for the aging and disabled communities on Cape Cod. Legal questions, insurance needs, chronic disease self-management and prevention, mental health issues, and dementia are among the topics the May 16th conference will explore during panel presentations and interactive workshops. Attendees will be able to tailor their day by choosing to participate in up to three breakout sessions that interest them the most. Additionally, a fantastic slate of local experts who best understand our local needs will be on hand in the “Expert Room” to answer your questions and make connections.

As part of the Navigating the Long Term Services and Supports System for Older Adults and People with Disabilities series, the May 16th conference is perfect for professionals or community members interested in learning more about what options are available locally.

(Note: This conference is pending approval for 5 CEUs for social workers, registered nurses, licensed mental health counselors, and nursing home administrators.)

Registration details will become available in early March. In the meantime, our Save the Date flyer is available for distribution. And watch this space for more details and save May 16th for this fantastic event!
