(Free Information Session on Saturday, June 8, 2013)
Mount Vernon, NY, May 17, 2013 – The boomer generation’s parents are reaching an age when adult day care in a nonresidential facility may be the best option for them to meet their health, nutritional, social support and daily living needs.

Find out if adult day care is right for you and your parents at a free discussion by a panel of experts on aging, led by Wartburg Medical Director Frank Polcari, M.D.  The panel discussion is open to the public and will be held on Saturday, June 8, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Wartburg Conference Center, One Wartburg Place, Mount Vernon, NY. The panel will include an adult caregiver who has faced the same challenges as other Westchester families in the audience.

The informational session will answer questions such as:

  • What services does adult day care provide?
  • Are there special supports for those with Alzheimer’s, dementia or the medically frail?
  • Does Medicaid cover these services?

Persons who would like to attend the free session are asked to RSVP by calling 1-855-WARTBURG (927-8287).
