Elder Care Workshops

The Church Home at Montgomery Place and Bishop Anderson House are joining forces to offer two elder care workshops in the fall of 2014. Each presentation will be held in the East Room at The Church Home at Montgomery Place, 5550 S. Shore Dr., Chicago, IL.

Workshops will incorporate topics of importance to those caring for an aging parent or partner, as well as those involved in pastoral care for the aging.  The presentations are open to all at no charge and you are welcome to attend either or both.
