Family & Individual Care Strategies plus Resources for Aging in Place


with Christine Mild, Mt. Desert Island Adult & Community Education

Calendar Oct 6, 2022 at 6:45 pm, runs for 4 weeks

This online, live class will cover Elder Care/Aging in Place, Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Falls and Safety, and finally Community Resources (that you don’t know are there until you need them) for four sessions.  The sessions will consist of a 45-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions. Additional resources will be shared online and/or sent via email.

The focus of this course is to help families and individuals navigate the aging process as independently as possible. In this day and age there are limited or no extended families nearby and, in Hancock County there are limited facilities for care and recovery.

The goal of these informational sessions is to help aging adults and their adult children be more knowledgeable about how they, or their family member can remain safe, healthy, and at home as long as possible.

Christine Mild has been a Physical Therapist for the last 29 years. She is a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston. Christine's extensive knowledge of geriatrics, homecare, and health & wellness for the aging population allows for her to share with you and your family ways of keeping healthy and aging in place at home. She has worked exclusively on MDI for the last 22 years and has close ties within the community.

You will be sent a Zoom link closer to the start date.

Family members may join the registrant on the same computer.
