FREE lunch CEU on The Dementia Maze at Arbor Terrace of East Cobb

March 1, 2018, 11:30am - March 1, 2018, 1:00pm

FREE lunch CEU on "The Dementia Maze" at Arbor Terrace of East Cobb

Arbor Terrace of East Cobb
886 Johnson Ferry Road
Marietta, GA  30068 Map

Please join Miles Hurley, JD, CELA, of Hurley Elder Care Law for a Complimentary CE presentation on "The Dementia Maze: Understanding the Options and Cost of Care"

Every 67 seconds someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer's Disease, and one in three seniors will die with Alzheimer's or another dementia. The purpose of this activity is to review the basics of Alzheimer’s Disease and then analyze the financial impact of the disease to families and employers as well as those affected by it. Knowing the options available and planning for the unexpected loss in functional and cognitive capacity is the best way for healthcare professionals to advise their patients and families. The earlier you plan; the more options are available. Dementia is hard enough when there is a plan in place; dementia with no plan will leave families exhausted, stressed and financially strapped.

CEs available: Case Manager, Social Worker, RN

Community Education Program

Community Education Program

Charlie's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria
15 Westcross St
East Ellijay, GA  30540 Map

Cameron Hall of Ellijay is proud to present a complimentary Community Education Program.

Please join Danielle Humphrey, JD, CELA of Hurley Elder Care Law as she presents “You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know” at Charlie’s Italian Restaurant.

The options for paying for long term care are limited. Did you know that Medicare will not pay for home care or assisted living care? Do you know what Medicaid provides? Most families do not realize their limited options until they are in a crisis—usually when their loved one is about to be discharged from a hospital. Making decisions while in a crisis can be stressful and result in bad choices. This seminar is intended to provide information prior to a crisis. Learn how to best find, get and pay for good long-term care.

5:00 PM- 5:30 PM: Dinner

5:30 PM- 6:30 PM: Presentation

Charlie's Italian Restaurant
15 West Cross Street
East Ellijay, GA 30540

RSVP: Jessi Barton, JBARTON@5SSL.com or 706-515-4100. Seats are limited.
