For March, the community welcomes Advisor Dan Yancey with Senior Resources and Benefits. Mr. Yancey will be providing valuable information to Veteran’s and their families about Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Benefit. Learn how this benefit can help veterans or their widows with cost of home health aides or assisted living services.

Linda Ann Hershey, M.D., Ph.D., a board-certified neurologist, who sees patients at the OU Physicians Center for Memory Loss and Dementia will be the speaker Tuesday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. Dr. Hershey will share information to help families understand the different types of dementia, and what to expect in dealing with associated diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s with Lewy Bodies.

On May 17, Annette Prince, JD, LCSW, Director of Oklahoma Palliative Care Resources at the OU Health Sciences Center will visit the community. MS. Prince will be discussing the importance and implications of living wills and associated documents. Her presentation will focus on how medical professionals use the documents and controversies that may arise regarding issues of sustaining life.

The education program at Emerald Square is offered as a community service. The goal is to provide those who are seeking senior services and information a free resource to learn and find answers to their questions on topics.
