Tackling some age-old questions

Jane Fellows and Rick Sadle in "Good Morning, Miss America"

Lincoln City’s Chapel by the Sea Presbyterian Church will host the first session in its Symposium on Aging this Sunday, Oct. 7, featuring a screening of the play “Good Morning, Miss America.”

Written by former Lewis and Clark professor Dr. Phyllis Yes, the play focuses on the role of family in caring for aging parents who might also be enduring some form of dementia. The session will run from 2 to 4 pm, with the screening followed by a Q&A with Dr. Yes.

The symposium will continue on Sunday, Oct. 28, with “Caregiving for those with Dementia,” a discussion featuring two experts in the field. Anne Hill, attorney and author; and Dr Shirin Sukumar, medical director of geriatrics for Legacy Medical Group, will focus on compassionate and competent caregiving for patients with dementia. There will be time for Q&A and audience discussion.

Both sessions are free and open to all, with light finger food provided.

Chapel by the Sea Presbyterian Church is located at 2125 SE Lee Street.
