Brian Jackson, president and CEO of Sound Senior Care Inc. and Home Instead, presents a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum entitled “Stages of Senior Care: Your Guide to Successful Aging” at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim.
This presentation will be looking at how aging has changed in our lifetime and why this is an exciting time to be a senior. The eight care needs of every person as they age and how to adapt to the changes as you age will be discussed, as well as accepting factors that you can’t control and ideas for how to manage factors that you can.
Jackson has 19-plus years of experience working with seniors and has developed a keen understanding of the challenges seniors and their families face every day and the many options available for addressing those challenges, program organizers say.
From 1:45-2:15 p.m., volunteer nurses from the clinic will be available to check the blood pressure of anyone who may be interested.
