Cedarville Univeristy to Host Seminar on Aging Parents

by Public Relations Office

Cedarville University's social work and continuing education programs will co-host a personal growth seminar, titled "Caring For Our Aging Parents." The seminar, led by Karen Puterbaugh, director of the Greene County Council on Aging, will be presented Oct. 27, from 1:00 p.m. - 4:15 p.m., in the University's Engineering, Nursing and Science Center. The workshop will provide social workers and other concerned persons with information and resources related to the normal aging process, a variety of disease processes common to the elderly, and planning for appropriate care. Participants will be able to use the information and resources in assisting seniors and care givers in dealing with service and care-related needs. The seminar is free and open to the public. Groups are welcome. To ensure adequate space is provided, interested persons are asked to call the social work program office at (937) 766-7676 to make reservations. Because the University is an approved provider, the seminar also offers continuing education credits (CEUs) for licensed care givers. For those who register, three social work CEUs will be granted. The registration fee for those seeking CEU credit is $40. Care givers interested in continuing education credit should contact Jessica Yost, social work program secretary, at 937-766-7676, or by email at yostj@cedarville.edu.
