Successful aging conference to be held Saturday, Oct. 13th


By Joyce Coronel

This Wednesday, Oct. 10 is the deadline to sign up for the Successful Aging Conference at Dayspring Methodist Church, 1365 E Elliot Road, Tempe.

The daylong, free conference will be held Saturday, Oct. 13 and will feature an array of speakers as well as lunch. Twenty agencies will be represented at the event.

Mary Thielemeir of Dayspring said organizers are hoping to spread the word about the conference. This is the fourth such conference that Dayspring has hosted, she said and RSVPs are required.

“The people who have participated at it in the past have found it extremely valuable,” Thielemeir said. “There’s a segment that applies to sandwich generation folks, too.

We want to make sure these types of services are offered to our congregation and to the broader community as well.”

Four presenters will be featured at the conference, including a representative of Keystone law firm who will provide information on the legal aspects of aging. An expert on dementia from Help My Senior LLC will address the topic of dementia and how people can best prepare for it.

Sponsors from various organizations will be on hand to answer questions and provide lots of resources to make daily living easier, including Tempe’s Neighbor to Neighbor program.
