What Social Workers for Seniors Provide In Our Communities

By: Darleen Mahoney

As SeniorLivingGuide.com continues our roadshow throughout the southeast United States sponsoring luncheons to celebrate case managers and social workers that work tirelessly on the behalf of Seniors and older adults, touching on what services they provide is essential to understanding their overall contribution to our communities. This also allows our Seniors and their caregivers to know what services and beneficial programs are available to them and their loved ones.

Case Managers and Social WorkersTheir goal is to make sure their elderly patients’ needs are being met with services and programs that are available across the board. These services run a wide gamut, everything from helping seniors gain access to transportation, financial resources, medical care availability, in-home assistance services, food delivery services, and help with mental and social problems. They also protect our most vulnerable population from any person or business that may try to take advantage of them.

One of their biggest attributes is their ability to navigate complicated government programs. These programs include social services, local programs, healthcare, and legal services. They can help the elderly apply for services that they qualify for and even help obtain funding for elder care. They will also make sure that these services are delivered and minimize any hiccups along the way on behalf of the Senior.

Where can you find these resources? Because the Federal Government has mandated Area Agency on Aging facilities in every county/city. These agencies have professionals who hold vast knowledge on all things ‘social services for the elderly’ related.

These case managers and social workers are super heroes for many families and their loved ones! Providing the elderly with the right help that they need and having access to all that is available, managed by a true professional, is a benefit that should not be wasted. Visit  Area Agency on Aging to find help in your area!

Aging and Your Brain – How am I Doing? Symposium in Charlotte

Filed under: Alzheimer's,Senior Housing Events,SeniorLivingGuide.com — seniorlivingguide @ 9:03 am

Aging and Your Brain

Charlotte, March 7, 2018 – Within the United States, there are at least 5 million people currently living with age-related dementias, and this number is expected to rise as more people live longer. So how do you know if you or your loved ones have dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (the most common form of dementia)?  Renowned experts, Dr. Charles Edwards and Dr. Aristides Chaconas will discuss this important topic at the Memory Center Charlotte’s Symposium “Aging and Your Brain – How am I Doing?”

The symposium will take place on Thursday, April 12 from 8:30am to 11:30am at Myers Park United Methodist Church, 1501 Queens Road in Charlotte. Tickets are $25 and available by calling
704-577-3186.  Seating is limited.

“We want people to recognize that our cognitive function changes as we get older, and memory problems do not always lead to Alzheimer’s disease” says Dr. Chaconas.

The symposium program will include:

Charles H. Edwards II, MD

* Memory Loss – Do I Have It? – presented by Charles H. Edwards II, MD of Memory Center Charlotte, a 501C3 entity which develops educational initiatives, direct medical care and community outreach to the community with an emphasis on dementia.

Dr. Edwards will address these questions: What areas of the brain are affected as we age? What are normal age related changes in your brain and how are they manifested? What are the practical aspects of normal cognitive aging?

Aristides E. Chaconas, MD

* Memory Loss – I Have It! What Do I Do Now? – presented by Dr. Aristides Chaconas, Neurologist at Memory Center Charlotte.

Dr. Chaconas will address these questions: When do normal age-related changes become concerning? What is Mild Cognitive Impairment? When do symptoms become serious?  What is the difference between Mild Cognitive Impairment and Dementia?  If I am diagnosed, what do I do now?

In addition, both doctors will touch on staying healthy and what is coming in the field of dementia care.

“Aging and Your Brain – How am I Doing?” is presented by Memory Center Charlotte.  To find out more, visit http://memorycentercharlotte.com.
