Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium will host a free Continuing Education(CE) Seminar as part of November’s annual National Family Caregivers Month at two locations on Thursday, November 14.

Thursday, November 14, 2019, Phaneuf Funeral Homes & Crematorium, 243 Hanover Street, Manchester, NH

The program looks at how advanced age brings with it a range of losses from a spouse or partner to independence and identity. Along with experiencing multiple losses, older people are more likely to suffer from chronic medical conditions requiring complex medical care. This event looks at innovative programs and new approaches to support older adults. It is appropriate for health professionals, counselors, nurses, social workers, clergy and other professionals working with the growing number of older adults.
The event is particularly timely as November is National Hospice Month. America is aging at a rapid rate, with 10,000 people in the U.S. turning 65 every day. Medicare is expected to include 80 million enrollees by 2040. The vast majority of this growing population will likely face multiple losses—spouse, partner, independence, identity—along with complex medical care needs.
This informative program offers ways professional caregivers can support the growing number of aging Americans through their losses and healthcare challenges later in life. It includes a two-hour educational video followed by a 30-minute panel discussion.
The program provides 2.5 free CE credits available directly online through the HFA (following the event).
This is a free event, but pre-registration is required as seating is limited.
