Kathi picBREVARD — For many of us, the fear of aging is just a part of life.

As a way to ease this transition, one organization will host a public seminar, titled “Who Will Care For Us?” Sunday, Sept. 22, at the Friendship Fellowship.

The day will feature a discussion led by the director of One Senior Place Kathi Ridner, called “Aging 101: Avoiding Crises in Later Life,” as well as presentations from eight Brevard-based assisted living and continuing care facilities.

Andy Petruska, chairman of the hosting organization and Unitarian Universalist church, Friendship Fellowship, said the need for this discussion began when a member of his congregation expressing concerns about what the future may hold for him.

“It started out with a search by one of our members,” he said. “He had a few questions about aging, so he asked a few organizations to come. This could benefit the public at large.”

The event will begin at 10:30 a.m., where Ms. Ridner will lead her discussion about aging and how to avoid crises later in life.

Then, at 1 p.m., Ms. Ridner will attribute opening remarks for the long-term care seminar, which features representatives from Sonata at Melbourne, Brennity at Melbourne, Town Square, The Fountains, Victoria Landing, Viera Manor, Grand Villa of Melbourne and La Place.

Mr. Petruska said the event could help elderly members of the public and their families address some of their concerns about aging.

A question-and-answer session, which will allow audience interaction, will follow the long-term seminar, Mr. Petruska said.

Mr. Petruska said the discussion is open to the public, who may attend one or both sessions.

Refreshments will be served between the interdenominational services and the free long-term seminar.

Friendship Fellowship at Pineda is located at 3115 Friendship Place in Rockledge.
