"Building Bridges: Practical Applications in Senior Ministry" is a free conference designed to help clergy, lay-ministers, and volunteers develop the skills and resource knowledge needed in order to meet the needs of the elderly community. The event takes place on Thursday, Aug. 22, 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m. at The Church on Main. It is a collaborative effort between the Alzheimer’s Association, The Area Agency on Aging and Disability, and The Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults.
“With increasingly scarce dollars and very limited resources for both faith-based and community-based organizations, it just makes sense for both to come together to enhance and support each other”, stated Amy French, program manager for the Alzheimer’s Association. “Our shared goal is to efficiently and effectively provide the care and support our Seniors need and deserve.”
This event will feature experts in the elder care and senior ministry community and will address the issues that most commonly affect the senior population. Matters related to both basic needs and spiritual needs will be addressed along with practical solutions, resources, and problem-solving to help meet the unique challenges of Senior Ministry.
This event is free, but registration is required. To register, or for more information contact the Alzheimer’s Association: Wendy Winters at 265-3600; firstname.lastname@example.org
