Full Circle

AS WE GROW OLDER AND OUR PARENTS DO TOO, WE OFTEN WONDER WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT. SOMETIMES WE ARE TRYING TO HELP OUT WITH OUR PARENTS BUT WE STILL MIGHT HAVE OUR OWN CHILDREN WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE. IF YOU HAVE A PARENT THAT HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH DEMENTIA IT MIGHT START OUT BEING VERY MILD, BUT CAN PROGRESS PRETTY RAPIDLY. EVEN WITHIN A YEAR THINGS CAN CHANGE TO A POINT THAT IT IS HARD TO GET FINANCIAL, INSURANCE AND OTHER ISSUES TAKEN CARE OF.  PARENTS MIGHT NOT KNOW WHO YOU ARE OR MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SIGN SOMETHING BECAUSE THEY KNOW LONGER REMEMBER HOW TO SIGN THEIR OWN NAME. THESE ARE SITUATIONS THAT REALLY HAPPEN.  FULL CIRCLE …AN AGING EXPO WILL ADDRESS MANY ISSUES THAT WE MIGHT BE FACING OR COULD BE FACING IN THE FUTURE.  IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERYONE ATTEND THIS CONFERENCE. THERE WILL BE TWO DIFFERENT FULL CIRCLE TRACKS THIS YEAR, ONE FOR THE PUBLIC AND ONE OFFERED FOR PROFESSIONALS NEEDING TO GET CEU’S.  THERE WILL BE OTHER SESSIONS OFFERED DURING THE EXPO AS WELL. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT BOTH TRACKS IS AVAILABLE ONLINE: WWW.NORTHWEST.KSU.EDU/FULLCIRCLE AND BY CALLING THE NORTHWEST AREA K-STATE RESEARCH AND EXTENSION OFFICE. THE DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS APRIL 20. LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED IF SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR A DIFFERENT COST.  FULL CIRCLE WILL BE FRIDAY APRIL 27TH AT THE CATHOLIC PARISH CENTER IN HILL CITY.  FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT YOUR LOCAL COUNTY EXTENSION OFFICE.
