New Orleans, La. – Advanced aging is a major risk factor for several chronic diseases in humans. Age-related changes often result in declines in the function of the senses, activities of daily life, and increased susceptibility to and frequency of disease, frailty, or disability.

Greater St. Stephen Ministries is hosting a Free Educational Forum for Caregivers of Elderly Patients. This free community event will occur on Saturday, February 24th from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Greater St. Stephen (Morton Hall), 5600 Read Blvd., New Orleans, La. 70127.

The Free Educational Forum for Caregivers of Elderly Patients is designed to educate the community about the increasing need for support because of the growing elderly population. There will be assimilations conducted by Dementia/Alzheimer’s specialists so that caregivers can understand the patient’s needs and how to effectively manage their care. A local podiatrist will discuss the disparities in the African American community such as the increasing risk of amputations, and peripheral artery disease (PAD), and preventive measures to decrease the disparities among our community. Catholic Charities and the Council on Aging in New Orleans will be on-site to provide resources to caregivers.

“As people age, they are more likely to experience several health conditions simultaneously,” said Bishop-Elect T. Delbert Robinson, Senior Pastor of Greater St. Stephen. “Greater St. Stephen Ministries is a pedagogic hub where caregivers of elderly patients can expect to be empowered with knowledge and support as we enter into an expanding geriatric population.”
