Managing Arthritis in Older Adults

  • Thursday, May 3, 2018, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Many older adults with arthritis face ongoing pain that can lead to depression, anxiety, or a feeling of helplessness when they are no longer able to do what they enjoy. Family caregivers could feel that they need to solve everything, when in fact what older adults with arthritis want most is to simply express their emotions of sadness and loss. Chances are, both the older adult and their family member could use some rest and relaxation.

The public is invited to a web seminar on Managing Arthritis in Older Adults Thursday, May 3, 2018. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC)’s Caregiver Resource Center offers this free program from 1:00 to 2:00 pm at its Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty. This web seminar is approved for AoTA contact hours in addition to CEUs approved for all ASA web seminars. Refreshments will be provided.

Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the symptoms and warning signs of arthritis
  • Understand how arthritis is diagnosed and treated
  • Identify ways of preventing arthritis
  • Learn tips for coping and support for sufferers and caregivers

Lakelyn Hogan presents this web seminar, part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care®. Bee Maher will be present for a special Q and A portion after the web seminar.

Lakelyn Hogan is a gerontologist and caregiver advocate for Home Instead Senior Care and a doctoral candidate at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO), studying social gerontology.
