Hosparus Health Hosts Free Event Showcasing Community Resources for Older Adults

Resource event scheduled for April 29 to help seniors and family caregivers find services and support for optimal aging in the Barren River area.

(BOWLING GREEN, KY) — Hosparus Health, in collaboration with its palliative care brand, Pallitus Health Partners, and law firm Kentucky ElderLaw, PLLC are inviting seniors and their family caregivers to The Senior Aging Summit, on Saturday, April 29, from 8 to 11 a.m., at the Warren County Extension Office, 5162 Russellville Road in Bowling Green. At this free event, dozens of community experts will showcase the services and support they provide for older adults and their families.

“Hosparus Health is thrilled to connect members of the community to dozens of local social service agencies and healthcare professionals,” said Community Outreach Manager Kristen Roderick. “We recognize that many families struggle silently, and often with frustration, unaware of the resources available for seniors and caregivers in our area. Our goal is to connect families with the services and support they need to achieve the best quality of life possible.”

Hosparus Health and Pallitus Health Partners will lead breakout sessions highlighting their available services for patients and families facing serious illnesses. Members from Barren River will educate participants on the nonprofit organization’s holistic team approach to comprehensive care. John Dodson, Attorney at Law with Kentucky ElderLaw, will conduct a session about asset protection for seniors. He will share considerations for long-term care planning, Medicaid, probate, and VA benefits.

Founded 45 years ago in Louisville, Hosparus Health annually provides hospice services to over 9,000 patients and families in Kentucky and Indiana. The organization expanded its portfolio five years ago with the addition of Pallitus Health Partners. This palliative care line provides wrap-around support for those with chronic conditions, such as cancer, heart failure, COPD, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and more. Palliative care can be provided along with treatments designed to cure and/or support chronic conditions. It is appropriate at any stage of serious illness and is available for people of all ages.

With an office in Bowling Green, Kentucky ElderLaw specializes in estate and long-term care planning, veteran’s affairs and Medicaid planning.
