Senior Education Conference Fall 2018

November 7, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm


Enjoy a day-long program of educational sessions on health and wellness, planning for the future, safety, and nutrition. Lunch included.

Join us for our second Senior Education Conference on November 7th at the Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center in Pittsboro.

The Chatham County Council on Aging, in partnership with NC Cooperative Extension Service, is putting together a day-long program of educational sessions on a wide range of topics. The keynote speaker is Dr. James Johnson and he will be speaking on the “Browning and Graying of America”—Implications of Immigration for an Aging Population. It is sure to be a thought-provoking presentation.

Among the many other topics that will be addressed during the day by speakers from Chatham and surrounding counties include fraud and scam protection, advanced directives, spring gardening, cooking demonstrations, financial and estate planning, pain management, discovering Nia as a holistic fitness practice, use of wild plants, downsizing and decluttering, preservation of historical sites, and much more. Some topics may change due to presenter availability.

The registration price of $25 (+ $2.03 processing fee for credit card or $1.24 for checks) will include a catered lunch from “The Old Place,” which has operated on a 120-acre farm in Bear Creek since 1979.

Registration ends 10/31/2018 and tickets are limited to 150 guests.

All proceeds from the retreat will go to support the work of the Council on Aging in its efforts to serve Chatham seniors and their families. The Council has a growing wait list for such services as Meals on Wheels, In-Home Personal Care, and Family Caregiver Respite.

For more information about this retreat, visit the Council’s website at www.chathamcoa.org or call the Councils’ Eastern Center at 919-542-4512 or its Western Center at 919-742-3975. We are working on our presenters and sessions now and the website will be updated as needed.
