Enhancing Comprehensive Services for Seniors

The Council on Aging of Martin County at the Kane Center welcomed Christy Shelton, MS, RDN, LD/N, earlier this year as part of a new, comprehensive healthy living initiative for seniors.

Shelton is a clinical dietitian who has worked on a contracted basis with the Kane Center’s Executive Chef and Meals on Wheels team since 2016 to develop menus that meet the nutritional needs of homebound seniors. Shelton’s new role brings her expertise directly to clients, through one-on-one nutrition therapy and counseling.  Shelton has 17 years of experience as a clinical dietitian, assisting patients suffering from a broad range of conditions, including cardiac disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, kidney disease, dysphagia, pulmonary disease, cancer, food allergies/intolerance, osteoporosis and more. Shelton’s bright, positive outlook helps her patients feel empowered to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes to improve their overall health and well-being.

Family Caregiver Workshop goes virtual to support caregivers when they need it most

The Council on Aging of Martin County at the Kane Center had to postpone its 6th annual Family Caregiver Workshop originally slated for April 3, 2020. After months of careful planning, the Workshop is back in a new virtual format that will air live from the Kane Center on Friday, September 11 at 1:30 p.m.

“Caring for a loved one with a memory disorder is never easy, much less during a global pandemic,” said Donna True, LCSW, Program Development and Outreach Coordinator for the Council on Aging at the Kane Center. “Now more than ever it is important for us to be able to offer advice and ideas that caregivers can easily translate into their everyday lives.”

The virtual workshop will feature the real-world tips and tricks caregivers have come to expect from the Kane Center’s annual event in a condensed, ninety-minute version that family caregivers can enjoy safely from their own homes.
