No one likes to think about or talk about death, but having preparations in place for your final arrangements is one of the most generous things you can do for your family. It alleviates the emotional and financial stress to those left behind in a time of sadness and confusion. It assures that your wishes will be respected and honored. Join us as Kelly discusses the importance of  talking with your family about the significance of pre-planning and how to start the process.

The Senior Resource Fair is an opportunity for you to meet with a variety of community agencies that provide valuable caregiving resources. UK Elder Care is hosting this event because we recognize that caregivers want to provide the best care possible for their loved one.  And in order to provide that level of care you need to know what tools, help and support are available and will allow you to make the best care choice for both you and your loved one. As part of this event, Dr. Gregory Jicha from the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging will lead an informal talk about Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and caregiving. Seating is limited for Dr. Jicha's presentation, so please be sure to indicate on the registration form if you'll be attending this part of the UK Senior Resource Fair.
