Regional Long Term Care Forum Scheduled for Aug. 12

longterm-careKENTUCKY (8/5/14) — Green River Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living is hosting the 'Quality of Life and Quality of Care Community Forum' at Logsdon Community Center (2400 Friendship Drive, Suite B, Owensboro) from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Agency representatives, caregivers and interested citizens in Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union and Webster counties are invited to participate in this public forum on aging services and long term care for the elderly and individuals with disabilities.

Topics of discussion will include in-home care, adult day care, senior housing, caregiving, assisted living, personal care homes and nursing homes. A light breakfast will be provided to attendees.

“Long term care is an ever expanding and evolving field,” said Vivian McNatton, GRADD associate director for Aging, Health and Social Services. “We are seeking to obtain community input to assess where we are on this issue today and to anticipate future needs across our region.”

According to U.S. Census projections, nearly one in four Kentuckians will be 65 or older in 2030, ranking the Commonwealth among the top 12 states in the nation by highest proportion of senior citizens.

This event is sponsored by Green River AAAIL (working to coordinate senior and disability services), Green River Long Term Care Ombudsman Program (working to protect area nursing home residents) and Green River Regional TRIAD/Elder Justice Coalition (working to reduce criminal victimization of seniors).

For more information on this event, please contact Vivian McNatton at (270) 926-4433.
