This week, we’re highlighting a special, pre-Forum workshop that is offered as a stand-alone workshop for $25! If you are attending the full Forum on Aging, this workshop is available at no additional cost.  Sherry Stock, ABD/PhD, CBIST will be leading Residential Treatment of Individuals Who Have Experienced Brain Injury:  Understanding, Managing, and Changing Challenging Behaviors.  Sherry’s workshops have received outstanding reviews in previous years, and we hope you can join us this year.
The Forum proper includes such presentations by:

  • Michael Knower, MD, HMDC, FAAHPM, and Chris Kelley, RN, MHL, who will discuss Navigating Rural Healthcare for Advanced Age Patients in the Years to Come;
  • Monica Sandgren of Oregon DHS’s Community Services & Support Unit will lead us through the Aging & Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) of Oregon and teach us about how to connect to community resources;
  • Patrick Arbore, Ed.D. will address the topic of Depression, Suicide, & Aging in Rural Communities; and
  • Leah Brandis of HealthInsight Oregon and Serena Hasworth of the PSU Institute on Aging will talk through MOVE-ing Toward Person-Centered Care and share practical tools for caregivers.
