LIBERTY, NY — The public is invited to a web seminar titled “Holistic Aging: Mind, Body, & Soul” on Monday, March 19. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC)’s Caregiver Resource Center offers this free program from 6 to 7 p.m. at its Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Rd. Refreshments will be provided.
Holistic aging is a philosophy that looks at all aspects of a person as they age, including their mind, body and soul. As people age, they can be fearful of frailty and decline. However, keeping an older adult’s mind, body and social life active can prevent or even reverse frailty. Caregivers are in a unique position to help them figure out what activities will work best to do this.
Participants will be able to learn the fears older adults have about aging, recognize the physical and emotional signs that an older adult’s wellbeing might be at risk, understand ways to prevent or reverse frailty and learn of tips and resources that can help to improve an older adult’s body, mind and soul
Lakelyn Hogan presents this web seminar, part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care. She 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.
The course is free and requires five pre-registered attendees to hold the class. Registration is required in advance by calling 845/292-6180, emailing email@example.com, or visiting www.sullivancce.org.
