Art For Health Lecture Series: Looking Forward to Aging on the East End at Guild Hall
June 8, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Saturday, June 8
We all want to age gracefully and successfully. We seek quality of life. Our goals are to be healthy and vibrant. So now we ask ourselves, what can we do to achieve these goals?
Artful Home Care is pleased to announce the Art for Health initiative. This initiative features a series of lectures, educational programs and workshops. The discussions, moderated by Beth McNeill-Muhs, will highlight opportunities for increasing quality of life while aging on the East End.
Do you want to know what the community is doing to help improve quality of life for East End residents? What do you think about enhancing your nutrition to ward off chronic conditions? What about taking a tai chi class, or dance class to improve balance and help you avoid an unwanted fall? Have you considered engaging in an art program, but wonder how to get started? Do you wonder how you can maintain your wellbeing as you enter elder-hood? Do you question whether or not you or a loved one could benefit from some in-home support, but don’t feel a health aide is the right choice? Do you wonder what helps to stimulate your brain to improve your memory? Have you found yourself feeling socially isolated?
The lectures will highlight local health care professionals, as well as professionals who use the creative arts and other alternative measures as a means of healing and wellness. These discussions are an opportunity to educate community residents and begin a dialogue regarding the topic of aging on the East End. Our goal is to remove the stigmas associated with aging, and embrace the gift of life in its many phases.
June 8th lecture features panelists:
Deborah Adler, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT, Art Therapist, Patti Cronin-Hernandez, from The Ed & Phyllis Wellness Institute, Mare Dianora, Artist, Educator and Advocate, Robin Lombardo, Director of Music and Memory, Stefanie Sacks, MS, CNS, CDN and Nutritionist, Diane Schade, AGPCNP- BC, Geriatric and Palliative Care Nurse, and Adrienne Wooduck, Senior Caregiver and End of Life Doula.
The lecture will be followed by a Q&A and a reception from 5 pm – 6 pm. Light refreshments donated by Churchill Wine & Spirits. This event is free and made possible through the generous sponsorship of Brent and Laura Nicklas.
