Published 8:44 pm Monday, December 27, 2010

“Senior Lifestyles” columnist and author Ron Kauffman is set to speak Monday, Dec. 27 at 10 a.m. at the Meeting Place senior center in Columbus.

Kauffman, who is also a geriatric care manager, is considered an expert on issues facing boomers and their aging parents. Kauffman has spent extensive years studying dementia and Alzheimers disease as it relates to both the patient and the family of a senior with Alzheimers. He works with seniors and the adult children of aging parents providing care planning, guidance on issues and aspects of aging from in-home patient care, facility placement and advance directives to managing the stresses of caring and dealing with loss.

Half of the proceeds from the sale of each book ($5 per book) will return to the Meeting Place senior center. Kauffman will also be available to autograph his book after the presentation.
