Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages

A Congregational Care Series

Faith UMC offers a monthly series with guest speakers who will help us prepare for significant changes in one’s life. The hope is that the talks themselves may evolve into support groups or new small group ministries. Each event will include a catered meal and panel discussion or lecture, followed by a time for questions and answers.

 

Normal Forgetfulness or Memory Impairment?

October 9, 2018, 6:30-9:00pm, Fellowship Hall

Our popular pastoral care informational dinner and guest speaker series, “Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages,” will feature guest-speaker Christina Green, Director of Community Relations for Olney Assisted Living.

As we age it is common to have some forgetfulness. With 5.3 million people living with Alzheimer’s in the United States, how do we know when we should be concerned? Who should we turn to for help? Join us for this informative presentation about normal forgetfulness versus the signs of dementia. During this presentation, you will learn 10 signs that may indicate something more than normal forgetfulness, where you can go for help, and, most of all, where you can get support caring for someone with dementia.

Speaker Christina Green has over 28 years of experience in working with those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. She has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Gerontology. Early in her career she developed programs for nursing home residents designed for those living with Alzheimer’s disease. She managed dementia care units in nursing care and assisting living communities for 10 years, until transitioning to memory care specific to assisted living communities.

Please RSVP by Thursday, September 27th to reserve your place. (Scott Roby, Faith’s Director of Congregational Care sroby@faithworkshere.com )
