For the third year in a row, local agencies will collaborate to present a Coming of Age series in Ellensburg. Four free weekly seminars will be given during the month of May with information designed to help people care for an aging spouse or parent.
This year the schedule will include:
May 1, Tending Your Brain Garden: Keeping Mentally Fit as You Age (Ralf Greenwald, PhD, Central Washington University)
May 8, Getting Your Affairs in Order (Jeff Winter, Attorney of Law)
May 15, How Do You Sleep? (Susan Rausch, MD, PhD, Sleep Center at Memorial)
May 22, Vaccinations for Adults: You're NEVER Too Old to Get Immunized (Mark Larson, MD, The Valley Clinic)
Seminars may be attended individually or in series. They will be held at Dry Creek Retirement and Assisted Living Community at 818 E Mountain View Ave on each of the first four Tuesdays in May. Presentations will begin at 7 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m., including set time for individual questions.
