Senior Education Retreat

April 18 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm


Chatham’s 1st Senior Education Retreat will be held on Wednesday, April 18th 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. Nortin M. Hadler, Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Microbiology/Immunology at the UNC-Chapel Hill. Author of a number of books and other publications, including “Rethinking Aging: Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society,” Dr. Hadler encourages people to make better choices and increase their wellness as they age.

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 for 1 or 2, financial and estate planning, selecting the right footwear, stroke prevention, pain management, discovering Nia as a holistic fitness practice, use of wild plants, downsizing and decluttering, preservation of historical sites, and much more.

The registration price of $25 will include a catered lunch from “The Old Place,” which has operated on a 120-acre farm in Bear Creek since 1979.

Registration ends 4/9/2018 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.
