The second End Loneliness Symposium will take place on April 4, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., CST, in Chicago. HCAOA members can attend the event for free with discount code HomeInstead, thanks to HCAOA member and symposium planning chair Michael Melinger of Home Instead. The cost to attend is usually $125.
The symposium, hosted by Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly Chicago, will explore how creativity and engagement transform the lives of older people who are aging alone.
The event will feature Anne Basting, Ph.D., founder of TimeSlips.org and author of Creative Care; Neenah Ellis, author of If I Live to be 100: Lessons from the Centenarians, and former NPR Producer of All Things Considered; and Jeremy Nobel, M.D., MPH, President and Founder of the Foundation for Art and Healing Project UnLonely.
Eligible symposium attendees (RN, LPN, SW, LCPC) can earn two continuing education credits (CEs) for attending.
