Absolute Home Health & Hospice to host speaker series for seniors and their caregivers
CANTON, Ohio, (Feb. 11, 2020) - Absolute Home Health & Hospice in partnership with Altercare Integrated Health Services has announced a Senior Speaking Series, called Silver Insights. The series will highlight topics that promote well-being, self-care, and wisdom for older adults and their caregivers. The first session will be hosted on Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 9 a.m.– 10:30 a.m. at Buehler’s Restaurant located at 7138 Fulton Dr. NW Canton, OH 44718.
The February session titled Seasonal Blues? Our Tips to Overcome will tackle Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D. or seasonal depression). This kind of depression is related to seasonal change and can occur anytime throughout the year. But it is mostly exhibited with the start of fall and continues through the winter months. According to American Family Physician, 4%-6% percent of people are affected by winter depression, with up to 20 percent experiencing S.A.D.
Leading the discussion for the first session is social worker Charlotte Tyler, MSSA, LSW. She’ll discuss the signs and effects of the disorder, treatment options, and the routines and mindsets that can help seniors and caregivers work through these feelings and symptoms. Charlotte works at Absolute Home Health & Hospice as a social worker – helping patients and families with the emotional aspect of home health and hospice journey, as well as navigate home planning, insurance, medical equipment, and financial resources.
Absolute Home Health & Hospice, in partnership with Altercare Integrated Health Services, will host this speaker series as a way to provide education and resources that guests can act on to improve their lives. Breakfast is provided, and registration is required as space is limited. All programs are free and open to the public. To register and learn more visit www.abshospicefoundation.org/silver-insights
