Memorial Medical Center to Host Free Symposium on Care Transitions for Older Adults


Memorial Medical Center will host a free symposium for older adults and their grown children about navigating transitions in senior care on Sunday, Nov. 11, in the Memorial Center for Learning and Innovation (MCLI).

The 90-minute program, “Independence and Advocacy: Navigating Senior Care Transitions,” begins at 1 p.m. in the M.G. Nelson Family Auditorium on the MCLI's first floor.

Participants will learn about independent living arrangements, when it’s time to consider assisted living or nursing care, safety concerns as well as advance directives to ensure end-of-life wishes are met.

The program will feature Dr. Virginia Dolan with Memorial Physician Services, social worker Rita Bruntjen and registered nurse Joan Naumovich, both with Memorial Care Navigation. A question-and-answer session will follow their presentations.

“As medical care becomes more complex with age, this symposium will provide senior citizens and their loved ones with expert advice to navigate the challenges they face,” Dolan said.

Free parking is available in the MCLI parking garage at Klein and Carpenter.
