Foundation Events

Aging Isn't For Sissies!

The next special event for Samaritan Healthcare Foundation is "Aging Isn't For Sissies!" on June 22nd at the Port of Moses Lake in Moses Lake.

The Community Relations Committee will host solutions and resources to help navigate the path of healthcare and aging for you and your loved ones.

Do you have questions like these:  Are there simple signs and symptoms? How does the family get a patient into a provider?  How do you respond? Now that the patient goes to their provider, what can you do? What can the family do to help a loved one in a facility? Are there counseling services or Alzheimer's support available in the community?  

Three keynote speakers will start the program:  Dr. Michael Graham with Confluence Health, Tara Zamarron with Samaritan Clinic, and Bruce Pinkerton With Larson Fowles PLLC.  Following the speaking engagement, a question and answer session will include additional experts:  Kathryn Trumbull from Samaritan Healthcare,  Richard Donaldson from Samaritan Healthcare, Paul Riegel from Assured Home Health, Terri Riley Brown from Assured Home Health, Laurie Ahmann from Summer Wood, and Ken Sterner from Aging & Adult Care.  Local agencies will also be on hand to present timely information and answer questions related to these sensitive topics. 

The evening starts at 5:30 pm with hors d'oeuvres and refreshments, the speaking presentation begins at 6:00 pm, and  the Q&A session will commence at approximately 6:45 pm.  Coffee and dessert will be available at 7:30 pm until the evening ends at 8:00 pm.
