Education Forum at Hamilton Community Centre

Management of Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care partnered with Bethany Baptist Church recently to hold an Education Forum on Aging hosted by Hamilton Community Centre in Richmond BC.  The congregation at Bethany was invited to submit questions on topics relating to aging, and these questions formed the basis of the presentation.

The Forum was held on Thursday, June 9, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm.  Twenty-two guests attended this informative seminar.  Presenters included four Evergreen Management Staff and our special guest presenter Carol Dickson from Richmond Volunteer Services.  There were a large number of handouts to take home, that supplied each guest with additional information not covered in the Forum.

Topics presented were:

Brief History of Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care
Explanation of Various Care Levels
Overview of Community Resources
Navigating the Health Care System
Volunteer Richmond Services for Seniors
Understanding Dementia/Alzheimers
How do I know when my loved one needs care?
 
The evening concluded with an open time for questions to be asked to the presenters, followed by a time to personally meet each individual presenter and ask questions.
 
Evergreen Management Team looks forward to partnering with other community groups to hold future Education Forums.   If you have any questions, or suggestions regarding a future Education Forum, please contact Evergreen's Executive Director - Stephen Bennett.
