Shrewsbury: Shrewsbury Crossings presents “Seniors and Alcohol”

March 19, 2014

| Free

Shrewsbury – Shrewsbury Crossings, 311 Main St., will present a continuing education program, “Seniors and Alcohol,” Wednesday, March 19, from 8:30 – 10 a.m. The program offers an hour of continuing education credit to social workers, case managers, and nurses who attend. The event is presented in March for the recognition of Social Work Month in support of local professionals in this vocation. Celebrated each March, National Professional Social Work Month turns the spotlight on the profession and highlights the important social contributions they make, with their theme this year as “All People Matter.”

“Seniors and Alcohol,” presented by Dr. Paul Lemieux, psychologist and former treatment director at AdCare Hospital, will cover the impact of alcohol on the senior population. Normal changes that come about with aging; physical, cognitive and social, render the older person more vulnerable to the effects of alcohol. It is important for caregivers and loved ones be aware of these effects on seniors and learn the warning signs so they may help them.

The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Contactl Kelly Marcimo, Director of Community Relations, at 508-842-8998 or kmarcimo@benchmarkquality.com to reserve your spot or for more information.
