BEAVERTON — Health care changes for aging adults challenge not only the seniors but families and caregivers as well.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10, Bethany Center will host “Caring and Coping: Decisions Surrounding an Aging Adult.” A panel discussion will focus on legal documents to have in place, how to negotiate end-of-life discussions, and the differences between assisted living, managed care and hospice.
