Catholic Charities Elder Ministry is excited to announce the “Aging with Confidence” Webinar Series, a four-part series exploring how our five senses impact aging.
The series will begin on Wednesday, March 8 with “Hearing Health and the Brain,” presented by Dr. Kelly Knolhoff, audiologist and owner at Birkdale Audiology (register for the Zoom webinar). Dr. Knolhoff will discuss the basics of hearing, the effects of hearing loss on the brain and cognition, and treatment options and updates in hearing aid technology.
The second session, “Adjusting to Changes in Smell & Taste,” will be presented on Wednesday, March 22 by Margaret White, a Centralina Area Agency on Aging consultant (register for the Zoom webinar). Ms. White will discuss the impacts associated with any loss, identify risk factors, learn proven tips to mitigate loss, and take steps to increase the flavor of your foods.
The third session, “Sense of Vision,” and the fourth session, “Sense of Touch,” will be announced later.
Catholic Charities looks forward to helping participants learn about healthy aging by exploring their five senses.
