Perspectives for Clergy: Honoring Older Adults and Caregivers:
Honoring Older Adults and Caregivers

Nov. 7, 2019
7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There is a historical demographic shift underway in America. By 2035, the U.S. Census Bureau predicts that people age 65 and older will outnumber those age 18 and younger. What impact will an aging America have on faith communities and the people they serve? What do clergy members, spiritual leaders, faith community nurses, health ministers and others in ministry need to know to care for congregants, family, neighbors and themselves?

Attend this seminar to hear from experienced gerontologists, researchers, ministers and others about the intersection of faith, health and the aging process. Discover ways to care for family members affected by dementia. Learn about what is needed to maximize the power of a spiritual presence while caring for older adults. Find out how telling your personal story affects your aging experiences. Community service professionals also will help participants discover resources and how to access them.

Register online or call (502) 629-1234, option 4.
