“How to Make Tough Decisions For Your Aging Loved One” Panel Discussion Coming March 18 To Chattanooga

  • Thursday, February 29, 2024
Family members of aging loved ones are invited to a free question-and-answer session with local senior benefits and care experts on Monday, March 18, at the Silverdale Center Creekside Theatre in Chattanooga.

The Morning Pointe Foundation is presenting an in-person Caregiver Café discussion, “How to Make
Tough Decisions for Your Aging Loved One,” at 6:30 p.m. at the theatre, which is part of the Silverdale
Baptist Academy campus at 7236 Bonny Oaks Dr.

Discussing areas of financial planning, Medicaid and Medicare, veterans benefits and geriatric care are
these four panelists:
- Rebecca Miller, elder law attorney with Chambliss, Bahner and Stophel, P.C.;
- Tara Simpson, licensed insurance agent and patient advocate;
- Kristi Wick, Vicky B.
Gregg chair of gerontology and assistant professor for the UC Foundation; and
- Mary Ross-Tarkington, national director of client relations for Elder Veterans Legal Aid Group.

Amy Boulware, care manager for elder law and special needs with Chambliss, Bahner and Stophel, P.C.,
will moderate the discussion.

Coffee and desserts are available as refreshments prior to the start of the discussion.

The Morning Pointe Foundation has shifted the format of its previously web-based Caregiver Café
educational series.

“Caregiver education is one of the services of our Foundation, and that includes everyone from a nursing
aide at an assisted living facility to an adult daughter of a mom or dad in their 70s living at home,” said
Miranda Perez, executive director of the Morning Pointe Foundation. “There are some really important
topics to talk about as our loved ones get older that many families may not think about until their loved
one experiences a health setback. This Caregiver Café is designed to help empower families, together
with their loved ones, to have the information they need to make the best decisions they can for the
future.”

Tickets are not required for Caregiver Café.
