Are you are trying to navigate long-term care options for you or a loved one? There is an organization in St. Louis that can help.
On June 8, VOYCE, a nonprofit agency that educates individuals and their families on choices for long-term care, is hosting a day-long opportunity for older adults and those who care for them to learn about long-term care options and ways to remain independent at home instead of going into assisted living.
The annual VOYCE Long Term Care Conference will help explain long-term care options and debunk common myths and misconceptions about long-term care.
But it’s not all lectures and information on care facilities, insurance, or other support services. The conference will also feature unique and entertaining demonstrations such as:
• Vitality Ballet – a unique wellness program for seniors created by professional ballet dancer Vanessa Woods that uses modified ballet exercises from a sitting or standing position to improve balance, stability, range of motion, coordination, and memory.
• Support Dogs – which connects seniors with lovable pooches whose wagging tails and wet kisses help lower blood pressure, improve moods, and provide stimulation and companionship.
• Artfully Aging – Watercolor artists work with seniors to help them express their thoughts, fears, and memories in creative ways.
