The conference is being co-sponsored by the Jewish Chaplaincy Program of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Miami Jewish Health Systems and Jewish Community Services of South Florida. It is a practical forum for caring health professionals, community and spiritual leaders, and others concerned with enriching the lives of the elderly.

Rabbi Richard F. Address, D.Min., founder and director of the Sacred Aging Project, will be the featured speaker. He and other distinguished presenters will address such relevant topics as caring for older parents, exiting the work force, changing living situations, and forging new friendships, including relationships with those suffering from dementia. They also will discuss the challenges of creating, affirming and celebrating life’s most critical moments of change.

Registration fee for the conference is $35 per person, which includes lunch, as well as pre- and post-event receptions. Psychologists, nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, and marriage and family therapists who attend the conference will be eligible for continuing education credits. Sponsorships and exhibition tables also are available.
