And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. "Psalm 1:3, (KJV).

For Immediate Release....

Aging Symposium

Did you know that Rochester is rich with resources to assist the Aging? Although there is a lot of information available, many inner city residents are not privy to it. In addition, many of them are not aware of how to navigate systems in order to get the available services. The Urban League of Rochester's Department of Family & Children Services is aware of this discrepancy, therefore we are sponsoring an Aging Symposium.

On Saturday, June 27, 2015 , The Urban League of Rochester in collaboration with Zion Hill Missionary Baptist church, will host an Aging Symposium from 9:00 am until 2:00pm at the Zion Hill M. B. Church at 250 Dr. Samuel McCree Way Rochester, New York 14611. It will be a full day of workshops, culminating with our keynote speaker, Dr. Richard Machemer, retired Professor from St. John Fisher's College. Some of the workshop topics include, Medicare, Dementia, LifeSpan Services, Alzheimer's, Transitioning from Hospital to Home, Senior Scams, Caregiving, and More. Dr. Timothy Quill, of the University of Rochester will lead us in a discussion on Palliative & Hospice Care.

The symposium is free and open to the public, but registration is required. You can download a registration form by going to the following websites:

The Urban League of Rochester call: Theresa Green at 325-6530 Ext. 3053 email: Zion Hill Baptist Church email: call: Rev. Grace Douglass at 328-4660 (The deadline for registration is June 19, 2015)

The symposium is appropriate for social workers, case managers, caregiver, but more importantly the general public. We want to get the word out to anyone who might need help finding assistance for the aging.

The Urban League of Rochester in partnership with Catholic Family Charities, provides services through EISEP, ( i. e. Expanded In Home Service Elderly Program), an in-home base service for people 60 years and older with at least two unmet needs. We hope that at the conclusion of this symposium that the Rochester Community will be more aware of the services that are available to our aging population.

The EISEP Program is funded through United Way and Monroe Office for the Aging. We would like to thank our community sponsors....
