2022 Educational Forum

Raising awareness of the changing views on aging is another positive contribution Mercy Care makes to help community leaders understand the need to create “aging friendly communities.” Promoting older adults’ health, independence, well-being, and participation makes for healthy and vibrant neighborhoods, which serve the interests of all citizens in our Adirondack towns and villages.

Bringing national and state experts on Aging topics to the Adirondacks helps to ease the professional isolation experienced sometimes by too many of our agency and professional staff in the Adirondacks.

Mercy Care for the Adirondacks hosts presentations and education programs and advocates for the needs of elders living in their communities so that they might age in place more successfully.

Our 2022 Educational Forum will be held Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at Paul Smith's College, 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Our forums offer interesting and relevant content, exciting keynote presenters and opportunities to network during lunch which is included in your $25 registration fee.
