Care Connection for Aging Services will focus on medication safety during two special events at its senior centers in September.
Care Manager Laura Miles will have information and be on hand to answer questions from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 20 at the Holden Senior Center and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Warrensburg Senior Center.
The two events are part of the area agency on aging’s celebration of National Senior Center month in September.
“Medication management is more important than ever as the nation faces an opioid addiction crisis,” said Marilyn Gunter, Director of Care Management for Care Connection. “This information will help seniors in understanding their own medication routines and the role that older adults can have in preventing opioid addiction.”
